A historical study of the Nigerian press during the era of Nnamdi Azikiwe, Nigeria's foremost charismatic journalist and nationalist politician, which builds and expands on Professor F.I.A. Omu's pioneering study of press and politics in Nigeria is long overdue. By examining the newspapers, along with archival sources, and interacting with some of the actors on the media scene during the period up to 1967, Dr. Mordi now fills the gap in the crucial period of Nigeria's contemporary social and political history in which the press and pressmen played a preeminent role. Written for university students, academics, professional journalists as well as the general reader,the work questions the conventional wisdom on the subject, and opens new vistas for appreciating continuity in press roles and government- press relations in Africa's evolving, most populous country.
