The Nigerian Civil War in History and Historiography

By Brian McNeil

The Nigerian Civil War in History and Historiography (2010) argues that the Nigerian Civil War offers a unique opportunity to historians for a fresh appraisal of the conflict. Additionally, McNeil demonstrates that historians should view the war as a watershed moment in African history and global history.
