Nigeria's Urban History: Past and Present (2006)
by Hakeem Ibikunle Tijani
University Press of America

Nigeria's Urban History is a collection of 16 peer-reviewed essays that explore the nature of Nigeria's urbanism and the challenges it faces. Beginning with analysis of the role of colonialism in the country's urban identity, the volume examines the role of the present oil economy, gender issues, human interactions, poverty, crime, prostitution and transportation on the nature of urban life and culture. The insights of this collection will benefit students and researchers, historians and social scientists, policymakers and planners alike.
