Caught in a Trap is about strategies and techniques of political economic development as it is the story of an entrapped nation. It leaves for the reader, leaders of all sectors of Nigeria's economy, including lieutenants and followers, scholars of politics and public policy, and development analysts, the options that lay before us as a nation- to be or not to be; to grow or not to grow. The terms of its narrative engagement are as cogent as they are current, and until the nation is unshackled, the work presented in the book will remain a centerpiece of current and future national discourses.
