Isumonah, V. Adefemi; Nathaniel Umukoro

Credentials: 

V. Adefemi Isumonah, Department of Political Science, University of Ibadan (Nigeria)
Nathaniel Umukoro, Department of Political Science, Edo University (Nigeria)

In the post-Cold War era, religion and religious extremism has been the cause of most violent conflicts, thereby posing one of the major security challenges confronting the world and, in recent years, the stability and security of the African continent. Unfortunately, some states targeted by terrorist insurgencies, including Nigeria and Kenya, have been reactive, adopting coercive responses rather than proactive long-term measures to address the factors and drivers of religious extremism in a comprehensive and sustained manner.

From “I Like Ike” to razor-wire and National Guard troops ringing the U.S. Capitol, from Carl Perkins’s “Blue Suede Shoes” to Brotha Lynch Hung’s “Meat Cleaver,” the United States has changed. Seven decades of material abundance and unprecedented technological advances have entwined with pronounced social and cultural fragmentation. What — and who — can explain this peculiar transformation of the land of the free and home of the brave?

Battle of Biafra: British Intelligence and Diplomacy in the Nigerian Civil War

Author: 

Ignatus, Onianwa Oluchukwu, Ph.D.

Credentials: 

Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus is a Nigerian historian. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University of Ibadan and is the author of Britain’s Injurious Peace Games in the Nigerian Civil War; Once Upon a Time in Biafra: Memories, Foreign Visitations, and Life Experiences in the Nigerian Civil War, 1967-1970, and other books.

In this intriguing new book, Onianwa Oluchukwu Ignatus examines the role of British intelligence in the Nigerian Civil War. British intelligence operations were highly successful due to a decentralized approach. Britain maintained regular supplies of arms to Nigeria despite considerable opposition at home. Thus, up-to-date information was necessary to determine the military behavior of both sides and the practicalities of arms supply for Nigeria.

Paul du Quenoy is a historian and critic. He has taught at multiple universities in the United States and abroad and is the author of four books. He holds a Ph.D. in History from Georgetown University

What is “cancel culture.” A new phrase in popular circulation for less than two years, it has provoked passionate denunciations from observers concerned with civil liberties, especially rights of free speech and expression, and apologetic defenses from opponents who advocate equity and accountability in light of new mores. Still others deny that “cancel culture” exists at all, while many claim never to have heard of it.
