Here are two recent perspectives on the increasing Boko Haram-related violence in northern Nigeria:
- The Economist (Jan. 14 2012 issue): http://www.economist.com/node/21542764
- 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
I’ve also just completed a monograph on Boko Haram, for Joint Special Operations University Press, currently under final review. Quite a terrorism hotspot these days . . .
