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.

The Role of Customs in International Treaties (W. B. Sheridan Law Books)

Author: 

Liakopoulos, Dimitris: Tufts University

The Role of Customs in International Treaties concentrates on issues of friction between member states of the United Nations. In view of the role played by the United Nations in resolving international disputes, Dimitris Liakopoulos hypothesizes that "practical guides" based on custom often catalyze the positions taken by states, courts, scholars, and other actors, constituting an "orthodox" position against which formulaic legal opposition will become predictably more difficult.

Predicting Gender Violence in India: A Counterintuitive Theoretical Approach (St. James’s Studies in World Affairs)

Author: 

Vasudevan, Shritha K., University of Florida

In this provocative new book, Shritha Vasudevan argues that feminist international relations (IR) theory has inadvertently resulted in a biased worldview, the very opposite of what feminist IR set out to try to rectify. This book contests theoretical presumptions of Western feminist IR and attempts to reformulate it in contexts of non-Western cultures. Vasudevan deftly utilizes the theoretical constructs of IR to explore the ramifications for India.
