This volume investigates the relationship between radicalism and foreign policy in Nigeria. The argument is anchored in two interlocking and multifaceted angles: philosophy and policy. It brings into focus the thinking and behaviour of political groups and of institutions. The first part focuses on theoretical discourse and an analysis of the term "radicalism". The second part is concerned with practice and an examination of the impact of radicalism on the political process, on external relations and the institutions of foreign policy. Part three focuses on policy more generally and specifically on periodic analysis and radical expectation, language and action. The concluding chapter reappraises the basis of foreign policy-making in Nigeria in view of the challenge to her corporate existence as a nation.
