Jim Bailey was however often on the spot in other African countries too. Here the story of Nigeria is told from the photographic records of Drum. Presenting an African view of contemporary history, the large-format volumes are both a wealth of information and accessible history, and a unique photographic resource. The diverse and turbulent events, and the numerous complex characters who occupied the centre stage in the epic drama that was the evolution of the Nigerian state, are reported with passion and mission in the several editions which were compiled to make up this two-volume text. All the stars of political history are vividly recorded. Also prominently featured, copiously illustrated with historic photographs, are social issues of sports, secret cults, ritual murder, entertainment, the arts, religion, juju, the 1996 coup, and the Civil War.
