Abstract:This note treats the controversy about Nigeria's international position and potential in the context of changing global situations, economic, strategic, and analytic. It seeks to situate the contemporary 'palavers' about oil, dependence, debt, migration, and conservatism in the context of 1) the structures of the Nigerian state and system, 2) the history of its incorporation and marginalisation in the world system, and 3) broader disputes about mode of analysis and type of prescription. Sections: Introduction - Nigeria in the world system: powerful and/or peripheral? - Levels and roles - The character of Nigeria's political economy - Realism, idealism and radicalism - Conclusion: the future of the Nigerian state. This paper was written before the military coup of December 31, 1983. Bibliogr.
