תּ Beginning reader ᆑ A Culture of Corruption: Everyday Deception and Popular Discontent in Nigeria - Kindle edition by Daniel Jordan Smith. Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com. kindergarten ᐊ Kindle By Daniel Jordan Smith ᑈ The heart of the book concerns how Nigerians cope daily with the need to settle with those who hold power, but are also experiencing a breakdown of the system that at least allowed for survival Nina C Ayoub, Chronicle of Higher Education Smith s book offers a sophisticated and deeply troubling portrait of a contemporary Nigeria Nicolas van de Walle, Foreign AffairsSmith has written a sharply critical, yet finely judged, book that every student of African politics should pay heed to Ebenezer Obadare, International Affairs Smith s primary concern is with the perception of corruption amongst Nigerians and the impact this perception has on the behavior of Nigerians Anyone who is concerned with the discussion of corruption and how it relates to the development of African economies should read Smith s book The notion that corruption causes poverty is accepted by Western development banks and their critics alike Smith demonstrates better than any opponent of this idea could that this assumption is rooted in the perception of African s behavior rather than in an analysis of the economic of development Stuart Simpson, Culture WarsSmith examines e mail schemes as cultural texts, analyzing their structure and what they say about the culture of corruption in Nigeria Susan Cotts Watkins, Population and Development ReviewCorruption may be found everywhere However, its particular pervasiveness in Nigeria is sometimes referred to as the Nigerian factor by Nigerians themselves Anthropologist Smith examines this corruption from the perspective of ordinary Nigerians in their everyday livesThis clearly written volume is for anyone interested in a deeper understanding of the dynamics of corruption in contemporary Nigeria E.P Renne, ChoiceThis is a very good book that is relevant far beyond Nigeria Daniel Jordan Smith has written a book that enlightens and entertains a great achievement Jan Kees Van Donge, Modern African Studies A Culture of Corruption is a well written book and gives us a lively and accurate picture of a phenomenon that is particularly associated with Nigeria today It is an extremely sympathetic portrait, seen from the inside, of popular reaction to a factor that is distorting the lives of Nigerians and postponing the development of their own form of real democracy Jennifer Greenleaves, SociologicaThe importance of Smith s study not only lies in the sincerity with which he often writes as a direct participant in the instances he lays bare, but also in his tracking of the dynamics of victimhood, dununciation, and connivance in them Nikolai Jeffs, Anthropological NotebooksBy all measurements Nigeria, richly endowed with natural and human resources and the United States fifth largest source of imported oil, should be one of the most prosperous of the world s developing countries Instead it is one of the poorest No one has done a better job than Daniel Jordan Smith of showing how and why the cancer of corruption has hobbled the giant of Africa A Culture of Corruption is an absorbing cultural study by an anthropologist who deeply cares about the society into which he has married Walter Carrington, former U.S Ambassador to NigeriaThis is a path breaking study of a challenging topic for African studies, anthropology, development economics, and social sciences in general If any country in Africa should be able to join the world s newly industrialized countries, it should be Nigeria in view of its size and its oil wealth The common explanation of its constant failure to do so is corruption The great merit of this book is to show that corruption has many faces in everyday life The term is all too often used as a blanket notion Smith shows how misleading this is by studying it as a daily reality with manifold expressions The book fills an urgent need We must better understand the reasons why Africa s giant is stagnating if we want to be able to say something about the continent s present day crisis Peter Geschiere, University of AmsterdamNigeria is known globally as a center for scams of a variety and audacity that are astounding to those who trust that their own societies and economies run according to the rules In A Culture of Corruption, Daniel Jordan Smith draws on many years of living in Nigeria as an NGO representative and anthropologist to cast a very wide net around Nigerian corruption, to include contemporary official and unofficial malfeasance of all kinds His exposition is graphic, detailed, and broadly supported He doesn t flinch before quite terrifying case material There is no other work that covers the same ground so clearly and in such a nuanced and observant manner Jane I Guyer, Johns Hopkins University CultureGrams Online Edition Enter your user name and password to log in Culture Music, TV radio, books, film, art, dance All the latest news, reviews,
