Review by Lillian Wong, Africa Programme, Chatham House International Affairs 85:2. 2009

This book is a rich collection of 16 essays on Nigeria’s foreign policy written by internationally acclaimed academics and distinguished Nigerian diplomats. The metaphor in the title is apt, with Nigeria as Gulliver the giant, constrained by domestic weaknesses and challenges.

Reviewed by Garth le Pere,
Executive Director of the Institute for Global Dialogue
In the African Journal in Conflict Resolution Volume 8 No. 2, 2008

This elegant book covers an expansive thematic mosaic. Its sixteen chapters provide incisive analytical coverage, conceptual insights and empirical richness, pointing to the factors and imperatives which have shaped Nigeria's foreign policy since the end of the Cold War. That it succeeds so admirably is a tribute to the editors and well-chosen authors. Each chapter helps to impose order on this complex mosaic.

Gulliver’s Troubles offers the first comprehensive assessment of the post-Cold War foreign policy of Nigeria – one of Africa’s most important states. Expert contributors, comprising academics and scholar-diplomats, analyse Nigeria’s most vital domestic challenges and critical regional issues from historical and contemporary perspectives. Nigeria’s relations with its neighbours and other significant states and regional and international bodies also come under scrutiny.
