Zones of religious tensions are identified, as well as general characteristics of violence in Nigeria; and issues in inter- and intra-religious relations, religious organizations and the states, and the main actors in the conflicts are explored in great detail. Violence in Nigeria is written to appeal to specialists and non-specialists alike."@en ;
