Articles & Books
Max Siollun has developed a distinctive voice with respect to Nigerian history from a military perspective as evidenced from numerous articles on sites such as Nigerian Village Square, 234Next (a leading Nigerian daily newspaper), as well as a personal blog that Siollun utilizes to share his perspectives.
Siollun's Oil, Politics and Violence: Nigeria's Military Coup Culture (1966-1976), published in 2009, has received favorable reviews by numerous commentators who note Siollun's contribution to Nigerian history, not least for its dispassionate tone, critical insight and unpacking of a complex series of events which were hitherto poorly documented or not documented at all.
