Here are two recent perspectives on the increasing Boko Haram-related violence in northern Nigeria:

  1. The Economist (Jan. 14 2012 issue): http://www.economist.com/node/21542764
  1. an Op-Ed that I co-authored (Jan. 12 2012): http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/Opinion/2012/0112/Nigeria-s-Boko-Haram-attacks-are-misunderstood-as-regional-Islamist-threat
