Das Werk ist Teil der Reihe:
In view of the explosion of violent conflicts in many
parts of the world and the hasty, but prevailing, assumption that ethnicity is
the source of these conflicts, this book is encompassed to highlight, describe and
examine how ethnicity is politicized in many of these current conflicts. By
deploying the instrumentalist approach and the theory of identity and
difference in ethnicity, the author identifies the actors involved and depicts
how religion is exploited as an instrument of division by reflecting it on the
Nigerian situation, exploring the examples of the Jos conflicts and the Warri
Crisis within a twenty years period, 1990 to 2010.
