When this book first appeared as Ironside in 1999, it drew national attention to a critical view of Nigerian life that had deliberately been obscured with a smokescreen. With its lifting of the veil, new points of analysis gradually gained prominence in the interpretations of the country’s political developments. In this edition entitled Ironsi, Chuks Iloegbunam goes beyond the individual level and the web of intrigues that cost General Aguiyi-Ironis his life.

He laments Nigeria’s farcial democratic enterprise, condemns the excesses of the political entrepreneurs responsible for the status quo and posits political restructuring that is based on a brand-new, autochthonous constitution as a design for drilling water out of the current pervasive aridity.
