This work examines public management and the trend of sustainable development in Nigeria from 1966 to 1999. The text analyzes the trend of change that occurred in Nigeria during the several military regimes and the short democratic government. It argues that Nigeria needs to change in both its public administration and its military institutions in order to attain sustainable development. The text addresses why public administrators in Nigeria are happy with the status quo. It uses several cases to present an argument that Nigeria must come to terms with its lack of capable public administrators. Extended family committments, corruption and ethnic ties have affected the impartiality of public managers and private invested interests in competition for state patronage, crucial factors in a nation where the state has been the main agent of development. Thus, the text maintains that the effective performance of public administration in the sustainable development process will require a high level of creative assessment and innovation on the part of political leaders. It goes on to analyze the implication of the profound transformation these change instruments will bring about. The mode of analysis adopted by the author, though specific to Nigeria in this text, should be easily adaptable to other countries.

The economic performance of African countries south of the Sahara generally has been poor during the past two decades. External factors such as high oil prices, deteriorating terms of trade and wars, and formidable internal factors such as corruption, chauvinism, authoritarianism and violence have continued to plague the region. Whereas in the 1980s the Sub-Sahara was overwhelmed by drought, devaluation and debt, the 1990s have brought the paradox of civil strife and a complex transition to democracy. This volume surveys the major political, economic, social, ecological and gender related aspects of Sub-Saharan Africa's struggle toward democracy. Its essays pose two fundamental sets of ideas: that the internal equilibrium can be restored only through institutional changes with these countries; and that the political and economic dilemmas in the region are closely related to issues of gender and the environment. The volume should be of interest to scholars and students of comparative politics, developmental economics and African studies.

Few studies of globalization have analyzed its impact on African societies from the viewpoint of sustainable development. This volume answers that need. The essays here contribute to the store of knowledge about globalization in sub-Saharan Africa by documenting the affect of this global force on the continent's growth-economic, political, and cultural. This interdisciplinary collection provides comprehensive analyses-at the international, national, and local levels-of the theoretical issues revolving around the complex process of globalization, while offering detailed examinations of new models of economic development that can be implemented in sub-Saharan Africa to enhance economic growth, self-sufficiency, and sustainable development. These models are accessible to politicians, public policy analysts, scholars, students, international organizations, nongovernmental actors, and members of the public at large. Finally, the essays here provide insightful case studies of African countries that already demonstrate creative, indigenous-based models of entrepreneurship and discuss efforts to achieve sustainable development and economic independence at the grassroots level. Contributors represent the disciplines of law, history, political science, economics, sociology, anthropology, business and management, African studies and art history, criminal justice, and education. Bessie House-Soremekun is the Public Scholar in African American Studies, Civic Engagement, and Entrepreneurship, Professor of Political Science and Professor of Africana Studies at Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis. Toyin Falola is the Frances Higginbotham Nalle Centennial Professor and Distinguished Teaching Professor at the University of Texas at Austin.
