Some of Nigeria's most prominent progressive historians have combined to write a coherent and organized account of the economic relationship foisted on Nigeria by the British colonial occupation. The authors stress, in particular, the wider consequences of the destruction of indigenous institutions, and the relationship of the colonial era with present-day economic distortions and political instability.
