About this book

This book offers an account of Nigeria's development from a colonial dependancy to an independent state. It tells the story of a country with immense mineral wealth and abundant natural resources embarking on the long and arduous journey towards political, social and economic transformation. This development is seen through the eyes of a sympathetic, but acute and critical observer who ran a major international timber exporting company in Nigeria, the Cameroons and Liberia. Brandler provides a picture of modern Nigerian life and of the personalities he encountered politicians, lawyers, businessmen, traditional chiefs and many ordinary Nigerians who form the backdrop to the story. There are accounts of political struggles and the social, economic, cultural and ethnic problems that have made up Nigeria's history - including the civil war.
