Nigeria’s Defence and National Security Linkages is a public affairs management approach to National Security. The book is an attempt at presenting a more comprehensive model for the analysis of national security in place of the orthodox approach, which emphasizes only the coercive apparatus of State power. By adopting the linkage approach, the book discusses all the important variables affecting Nigeria’s Defence and National Security management, including especially the usually neglected issue of the general conduct of public affairs. Although the analysis focused on Nigeria, the model is of general applicability and can be used to analyse the Defence and security situations in other countries. By making available to defence and national security planners, analytical tools they could use not only to make reliable judgement about the state of their country’s security, but also to address the present and future weaknesses in their defence and national security effort, this book is unique for its timeless relevance.
