PROTEST MOVEMENTS IN LAGOS, 1908-1930 This volume contains much new research, using new sources. The author has reconstructed the historical events of eight major protest movements in Lagos in the early nationalist period, illuminating many aspects of the conflicts between the different factions of the Lagos educated elite. The work includes a study of one protest led by the elite women with previously unreported women's groups. There is much biographical information about many lesser-known figures in Lagos politics. The book also draws parallels between the colonial period and the military governments of post-independence Nigeria.
