This collection of essays represents one of the most thoughtful reflections on elite politics and the public sphere in contemporary Nigeria. In sheer thematic coverage and incisive analysis that draws from recent and past events, the volume demonstrates Lawuyi’s perspicacity as one of Nigeria’s leading thinkers and a foremost
anthropologist whose writings are decisively among the best there are today. These essays are unputdownable.
