Summary
Violence in Nigeria is the most comprehensive study of religious violence and aggression in Nigeria, notably its causes, consequences, and the options for conflict resolution. After an analysis of the links between religion and politics, the book elaborates on all the major cases of violence in the 1980s and 1990s, including the Maitatsine, Kano, Bauchi, Kaduna, and Katsina riots. Zones of religious tensions are identified, as well as general characteristics of violence in Nigeria; and issues in inter- and intra-religious relations, religious organizations and the states, and the main actors in the conflicts are explored in great detail. Violence in Nigeria is written to appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike
