This book focuses on the Ogoni conflict in the Niger Delta of
Nigeria. There exists abundant scholarly materials on the conflict
and wide-ranging prognostications on its causes. However,
scholarship has been bogged down in controversy over whether
economic self-interest or legitimate desire to protect community
and environment propelled the conflict. The book seeks to extend
scholarship on the Ogoni conflict by testing the analytical utility
of a conflict model, Marginalized Violent Internal Conflict (MVIC),
to attempts to fully comprehend the nature of the conflict. The
author argues that the model, developed by Dan Tschirgi following a
study of the Gamaa Al' Islamiyya (Egypt) and the Zapatista (Mexico)
conflicts, provides better understanding of the causes and dynamics
of the Ogoni conflict.
