Oilfields and Airpower in African Conflict: The Case of Biafra

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D., Department of History, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)

Credentials: 

Author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and British Women and the Nigerian Civil War

In this intrepid study, noted Nigerian historian Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus investigates the air war component of the Nigerian-Biafran War, a crucial postcolonial conflict in Africa. It focuses on the Biafra’s air operations against oil installations and facilities owned by multinational oil companies in Nigeria. In addition to exploring global airpower historiography, this study explores the tactical aspects of how the renewed air war changed the military equation of the conflict when both sides were at loggerheads in peace settlement and relief arrangements.

Politics, Culture, and Origins in Nigeria: The Igbo and Their Nri Neighbors

Author: 

Nwaezeigwe, Nwankwo, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Senior Lecturer, Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka

Nwankwo Nwaezeigwe’s revelatory study of the Igbo people and their Nri neighbors presents a paradigm shift in the interpretation of Igbo history and culture. British colonial ethnography held that the Nri, who form part of a larger Igbo subgroup named Umunri, are the scions of a remote historical kingdom that once ruled the entire Igbo land. It further advanced the thesis that before the coming of the Nri, the Igbo as an ethnic group had no culture defined as Igbo except what the Nri introduced to become what is defined today as Igbo culture.

Delivered From the Mouth of the Dragon: A Face To Face Encounter With Islamist Terrorism

Author: 

Nwaezeigwe, Nwankwo Ph.D., Senior Lecturer, Institute of African Studies, University of Nigeria, Nsukka

Delivered From the Mouth of the Dragon: A Face To Face Encounter With Islamist Terrorism combines a critical analysis of Nigeria’s nationality problem and a brutal personal account of how the author was placed under a fatwa for speaking out against Islamization. This well formed study argues that the precarious state of political affairs in Nigeria lay in a jihadist plan that has allowed the Boko Haram insurgency to emerge. The book also chronicles political repression against opponents of jihadism.

Political Instability in Africa

Author: 

Amusan, Lere, Professor of Political Studies and International Relations, North West University, South Africa; Isiaka Alani Badmus, Associate Professor and UNESCO Chair in Peace and Citizenship, Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, Afe Babalola University, Nigeria

This book offers broad-gauged analyses of the causes, nature, and changing patterns of armed conflict in Africa as well as the reasons for these patterns. It also situates conflicts that have been haunting the African continent since the time of decolonization within the various theoretical schools such as “new war,” “economic war,” “neo-patrimonial,” and “globalization.” It begins with the premise that conflict constitutes one of the major impediments to Africa’s socio-economic development and has made the continent’s future looks relatively bleak.
