The author presents the Nigerian situation in a very pragmatic fashion, identifying those little elements, which many do not consider seriously, and the roles which they play in the formation, conception, and development of society. Although the language is highly sophisticated and analytic, it provides the needed template for an academic culture that is desirable, and should be desired for the sustenance of a tradition of excellence which is fast disappearing in academic circles. It is a work well done.’
