Title:Political culture in mobilizing systems: the case of Nigeria
Author:Fishel, Murray
Periodical:Genève-Afrique: acta africana
Geographic term:Nigeria
Subject:political attitudes
Abstract:This paper is an attempt at facilitating the comparative study of political culture in mobilizing systems. In section one a framework is developed to. focus on certain salient features of political culture in these areas. That paradigm is applied in part two to Nigeria. The attitudes identified therein should be viewed as hypothetical, modal orientations which were gleaned from a variety of primary and secondary sources. No attempt is made to explain the cause of the attitudes, but rather to illustrate, that through inductive research certain modal orientations could be enumerated in the first instance. With the identified modal orientations some middle-level, summary observations are made about Nigerian political attitudes. Notes, table, map.
