Fighting on All Fronts: Gendered Spaces, Ethnic Boundaries, and the Nigerian Civil War

By Obioma Nnaemeka

Fighting On All Fronts: Gendered Spaces, Ethnic Boundaries, and the Nigerian Civil War (1997) investigates the Nigerian civil war as an institutional question and as politics – engineered and fueled by external economic and imperialist interests and internal ethnic allegiances and delineates the contours of rhetorical compulsions and narratives strategies constituted as epistemologies of war.
