This is the only book of its kind to address the effect of agricultural decentralization on the Nigerian national economy. In his effort to demonstrate how decentralization promotes development that can economically empower individuals, Uwadibie thoroughly analyzes three key aspects of Nigeria's decentralization policy. These are the Local Government Reform Act of 1976, the creation of new states, and the implementation of the Structural Adjustment Program (SAP). Together, these policies reduced the overall role of the federal government in the national economy by diverting revenue to states and dissolving the federal government's direct ownership of agricultural enterprises. Based on his extensive research, Uwadibie concludes by making a number of additional policy recommendations that he believes are essential for Nigeria to become self-sufficient in food production. Those with an interest in African studies, economic development, or agricultural production will find much to their liking in this work.

Nwafejoku Okolie Uwadibie is Division Chair of Social Science and Business Administration at Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon.
