The Tragedy Of Victory: On-the-spot Account Of The Nigeria-Biafra War In The Atlantic Theatre
The Tragedy of Victory: On-the-Spot Account of the Nigeria-Biafra War in the Atlantic Theatre is a chronological narrative of the war that lasted from July 6, 1967 to January 15, 1970. With about 500 photographs and maps and facts, told with accuracy, the well-organised and efficient Third Marine Commandos, earlier commanded by Col. Benjamin Adekunle (with Lt. Col. G. Alabi-Isama, as the Chief of Staff) had already controlled the Atlantic coast from Bonny to Calabar before Col. Olusegun Obasanjo's arrival as the new commander . This most revealing book is in three parts. The first part is an account of the author's early life and his first encounter with the army. Under the watchful eyes of a mother who gave the best in moral education to a son of promise, Alabi-Isama's life got shaped by a pre-destined career where the cap really fitted. The second part is about the real combat. It outlines, in detail, the strategies and tactics the commandos employed during the historic 480km trek from Calabar to Port Harcourt and narrates the hostile climate, terrain environment, health and survival hazards they had to surmount on the 30-day march. The think-tank, the mapping out of operations and disciplined control of men and materials by Alabi-Isama, the chief of staff, as well as the officers of 3 Marine Commando Division of the Nigerian army, sustained the Nigerian side of the conflict. This section concludes with the final successful push by the commandos into Uli-Ihiala, Biafra's ‘centre of gravity,' a move that ended the war following the surrender of Biafra. The third part is an expose on Obasanjo's book, My Command. The author contests Obasanjo's claims about the war as being inconsistent with the truth and maintains that it is a tragedy that the real fighters of the war for the unity of Nigeria had not been acknowledged to date. Rather, they wallow in poverty and are discredited by their military leaders who assumed political offices with all the accompanying largesse.The book is a rich manual, a repository of invaluable information, a document that gives a precise and veritable first-person account of the Nigerian civil war, in the Atlantic theatre. It is a must for every serving and retired member of the armed forces to own. Other Nigerians and international bodies will find it particularly useful in reconstructing the events of Nigeria's civil warKey FeaturesPublisher: Spectrum Books Limited, Ibadan, Nigeria (October 24, 2013)Publication Date: October 24, 2013Language: EnglishASIN: B00G6HFDRQ

Ibrahim Babangida: The Military, Politics And Power In Nigeria
To borrow a hackneyed phrase, Nigeria has had a chequered political history before and since independence from British colonial rule on October 1, 1960. Two sets of actors - the civilian politicians and the military politicians - have been on the national political stage since January 15, 1966. General Ibrahim Badamasi Babangida was one of them. In his eight years in power as president, or perhaps more correctly as military president, he affected the course of Nigeria's events, for better or for worse, in a way that few, if any, before him did. It is not possible to tell Nigeria's story without Babangida's part in it. The book is the story of IBB, the little orphan from Minna, Niger State and his meticulous rise to the top of his profession and the leadership of his country. Perhaps, more importantly, it is the story of Nigeria, its post-independence politics and power, told from the perspective of the actions and decisions of one of the main actors on the country's political stage. The events that shaped the Babangida era did not begin on August 27, 1985, the day he staged a palace coup against General Muhammadu Buhari. They began long before that. This book is the definitive story of the military, politics and power in Nigeria. ______________________________ Dan Agbese holds degrees in mass communications and journalism from the University of Lagos and Columbia University, New York, respectively. He is a former editor of The Nigeria Standard, the New Nigerian as well as former general manager of Radio Benue. Agbese was one of the founders of the trail-blazing weekly newsmagazine in Nigeria, Newswatch. He was until April 2010 the Editor-in-Chief of the magazine.

Boko Haram And Its Suicide Squad: The Confession Of A Jihadist
A remorseful jihadist confesses his jihadi crime and atrocities to an investigative journalist, Johnny Cameron, on a dangerous assignment in Borno State, northeast of Nigeria, to cover the kidnapping of five westerners, by Boko Haram. Cameron's assignment took him to Boko Haram's stronghold, where the journalist found himself in an uncharted territory of satanic terrorism. After months of constantly dodging bullets and suicide bombers, Cameron realized that Boko Haram was more determined, and deadly than the Nigerian military. Cameron knew that he must be brave and smart if he wanted to survive a war that seemed bigger than the war in Syria. The acts of murder, mayhem and carnage, form the nucleus of this book of terrorism, which is essentially a work of fiction.Key FeaturesPaperback: 268 pagesPublisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (May 11, 2014)Language: EnglishISBN-10: 149953101XISBN-13: 978-1499531015Product Dimensions: 6 x 0.6 x 9 inchesShipping Weight: 1 pounds

21 Lessons For The 21st Century + Sapiens
In Sapiens, he explored our past. In Homo Deus, he looked to our future. Now, one of the most innovative thinkers on the planet turns to the present to make sense of today & #39;s most pressing issues. How do computers and robots change the meaning of being human? How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news? Are nations and religions still relevant? What should we teach our children? Yuval Noah Harari & #39;s 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today & #39;s most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future. As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive. In twenty-one accessible chapters that are both provocative and profound, Harari builds on the ideas explored in his previous books, untangling political, technological, social, and existential issues and offering advice on how to prepare for a very different future from the world we now live in: How can we retain freedom of choice when Big Data is watching us? What will the future workforce look like, and how should we ready ourselves for it? How should we deal with the threat of terrorism? Why is liberal democracy in crisis? Harari & #39;s unique ability to make sense of where we have come from and where we are going has captured the imaginations of millions of readers. Here he invites us to consider values, meaning, and personal engagement in a world full of noise and uncertainty. When we are deluged with irrelevant information, clarity is power. Presenting complex contemporary challenges clearly and accessibly, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is essential reading.

Before a bom* ended his life in the summer of 1980, Walter Rodney had created a powerful legacy. This pivotal work, "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa", had already brought a new perspective to the question of underdevelopment in Africa. His Marxist analysis went far beyond the heretofore accepted approach in the study of Third World underdevelopment.

Overlord: D-Day And The Battle For Normandy
Time has provided necessary perspective on Operation Overlord. Max Hastings' brisk narrative of D-Day and the battle for Normandy takes advantage, with a blunt assessment of the performances of the leaders and the in that battle. For example, British Field Marshal Montgomery is properly lauded for his leadership, under the severe constraint from his government of limiting British casualties. At the same time, he is taken to task for his tendency to overpromise and under-deliver. The narrative notes the astonishing resilience of the German in Normandy, and the price paid for inexperience, and for burnout, by various U.S. and British combat formations.The book is concise at just over 300 pages, immensely readable, and includes a useful selection of maps and photographs. Above all, it features the author's relentless need to dispose of legend in favor of sometimes uncomfortably hard fact. His basic thesis, that the battered German fought better than the Allies, is a continuing subject of academic controversy. Very highly recommended to the general reader and to the student of the Second World War.

The Prince By Niccolo Machiavelli
"The Prince" was written by Niccolo' Machiavelli in the 1500s. It has continued to be a best seller in many languages. The Prince is a classic book that explores the attainment, maintenance, and utilization of political power in the western world. Machiavelli wrote The Prince to demonstrate his skill in the art of the state, presenting advice on how a prince might acquire and hold power. Machiavelli defended the notion of rule by force rather than by law. Accordingly, "The Prince" seems to rationalize a number of actions done solely to perpetuate power. It is an examination of power-its attainment, development, and successful use.There have been many political philosophies published throughout the time of literate man, but few have made such an impact in so few words as Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. This eminently quotable treatise on the nature of rulers is unsettling in that it does not merely discuss the specific political geography of 16th century Europe, a world comprised of kings and nobles who ruled absolutely; it has endured for nearly 500 years because it is an all-encompassing understanding of men in power, and the common traits, motives and struggles which have characterized leaders from Roman emperors to modern-day presidents.Key FeaturesThere have been many political philosophies published throughout the time of literate man.Few have made such an impact in so few words as Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince.The eminently quotable treatise on the nature of rulers is unsettling in that it does not merely discuss the specific political geography of 16th century Europe, a world comprised of kings and nobles who ruled absolutely.It has endured for nearly 500 years because it is an all-encompassing understanding of men in power and the common traits, motives and struggles which have characterized leaders from Roman emperors to modern-day presidents.

Every American needs to understand the enormity of the threat we face and why.

The Making Of Donald Trump
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe culmination of nearly 30 years of reporting on Donald Trump, this in-depth report by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston takes a revealingly close look at the mogul's rise to prominence --- and, now, ultimate power Covering the long arc of Trump's career, Johnston tells the full story of how a boy from a quiet section of Queens, NY would become an entirely new, and complex, breed of public figure. Trump is a man of great media savvy, entrepreneurial spirit, and political clout. Yet his career has been plagued by legal troubles and mounting controversy. From the origins of his family's fortune, to his own too-big-to-fail business empire; from his education and early career, to his whirlwind and ultimately successful presidential bid, The Making of Donald Trump provides the fullest picture yet of Trump's extraordinary ascendency. Love him or hate him, Trump's massive influence is undeniable, and figures as diverse as Woody Guthrie (who wrote a scathing song about Trump's father) and Red Scare prosecutor Roy Cohn, mob bosses and high rollers, as well as the average American voter, have all been pulled into his orbit. Drawing on decades of interviews, financial records, court documents, and public statements, David Cay Johnston, who has covered Trump longer and more closely than any other journalist working today, gives us the most in-depth look yet at the man who has shocked the world. ”Provides useful, vigorously reported overviews of Mr. Trump's life and career ...

Tribes Seth Godin
A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea. For millions of years, humans have been seeking out tribes, be they religious, ethnic, economic, political, or even musical (think of the Deadheads). It's our nature. Now the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. All those blogs and social networking sites are helping existing tribes get bigger. But more important, they're enabling countless new tribes to be born-groups of ten or ten thousand or ten million who care about their iPhones, or a political campaign, or a new way to fight global warming. And so the key question: Who is going to lead us? The Web can do amazing things, but it can't provide leadership. That still has to come from individuals? people just like you who have passion about something. The explosion in tribes means that anyone who wants to make a difference now has the tools at her fingertips. If you think leadership is for other people, think again-leaders come in surprising packages. Consider Joel Spolsky and his international tribe of scary-smart software engineers. Or Gary Vaynerhuck, a wine expert with a devoted following of enthusiasts. Chris Sharma leads a tribe of rock climbers up impossible cliff faces, while Mich Mathews, a VP at Microsoft, runs her internal tribe of marketers from her cube in Seattle. All they have in common is the desire to change things, the ability to connect a tribe, and the willingness to lead. If you ignore this opportunity, you risk turning into a 'sheepwalker'?someone who fights to protect the status quo at all costs, never asking if obedience is doing you (or your organization) any good. Sheepwalkers don't do very well these days. Tribes will make you think (really think) about the opportunities in leading your fellow employees, customers, investors, believers, hobbyists, or readers. . . . It's not easy, but it's easier than you think.Key FeaturesISBN: 9781591842330Author: Seth GodinPaper : whiteLanguage : EnglishHardcover

The Trump Prophecies By Mark Taylor, Mary Colbert
The Astonishing True Story of the Man Who Saw Tomorrow... and What He Says Is Coming Next. In November of 2016, the world witnessed the impossible. Nearly every household in America was tuned in to the election feeds, and every update pointed to a loss for the Republican Party. But when the map of the states flipped red in the final hour, there were a select few who weren't surprised. They had always known Trump was going to win. He was chosen for such a time as this. The prophecy had said so.This prophet, this reserved man of God, was retired firefighter Mark Taylor. The word given by the Holy Spirit was delivered on April 28, 2011 in the middle of the most debilitating sickness a man could ever experience. When the prophecy later fell into the hands of New York Times bestsellers Don and Mary Colbert, God used this new team of passionate individuals to lead the nation into a fervent prayer chain that would accomplish one of the most incredible miracles our country has ever seen.But Trump's victory was only the beginning.What is coming next for the most powerful nation on earth today? Mark Taylor has more to say.In The Trump Prophecies readers will discover:- How the Lord can and will use anyone regardless of education, background, or health to communicate His message to the Church of Christ. - What led to the miracle of the 2016 election, the role of we the people for the will of God in the future, and what the Body of Christ needs to do to keep His blessing on our nation. - How the enemy has utilized techniques of distraction to keep the Body's focus off of God and onto internal, demoralizing disputes and how this can be overcome. - Astounding, world-altering changes in our US government Mark sees on the horizon. - The positive message of hope and encouragement that points to fresh methods of spreading the Gospel to the lost.Key FeaturesA book.Authors: Mark Taylor, Mary Colbert.Genre: Politics.

Against The Run Of Play
In a curious way, this book is more than an explanation for the smooth transition of power from one democratically elected administration to another or from an African ruling party to an opposition party.In identifying the factors that powered the Muhammadu Buhari ascendancy in 2015, it also contains enough suggestions about the forces that will determine the life span of his presidency. By some historical accident, ‘Against the Run of Play' is going to press at the mid-term of the Buhari presidency. Fortuitously, this moment happens to coincide with an unanticipated development in the life of the administration. As at this writing, President Buhari is on medical vacation in London. He has been gone for over a month while the precise nature of what ails him and the duration of this vacation remains shrouded in official veil.- Chidi AmutaKey FeaturesAuthor: Olusegun AdeniyiPublisher: FarafinaPages: PaperbackWhat's In the Box

The Making Of Donald Trump
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERThe culmination of nearly 30 years of reporting on Donald Trump, this in-depth report by Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter David Cay Johnston takes a revealingly close look at the mogul's rise to prominence --- and, now, ultimate power Covering the long arc of Trump's career, Johnston tells the full story of how a boy from a quiet section of Queens, NY would become an entirely new, and complex, breed of public figure. Trump is a man of great media savvy, entrepreneurial spirit, and political clout. Yet his career has been plagued by legal troubles and mounting controversy. From the origins of his family's fortune, to his own too-big-to-fail business empire; from his education and early career, to his whirlwind and ultimately successful presidential bid, The Making of Donald Trump provides the fullest picture yet of Trump's extraordinary ascendency. Love him or hate him, Trump's massive influence is undeniable, and figures as diverse as Woody Guthrie (who wrote a scathing song about Trump's father) and Red Scare prosecutor Roy Cohn, mob bosses and high rollers, as well as the average American voter, have all been pulled into his orbit.

Making Africa Work: A Handbook
Sub-Saharan Africa faces three big inter-related challenges over the next generation. It will double its population to two billion by 2045. By then more than half of Africans will be living in cities. And this group of mostly young people will be connected with each other and the world through mobile devices.Properly harnessed and planned for, this is a tremendously positive force for change. Without economic growth and jobs, it could prove a political and social catastrophe. Old systems of patronage and of muddling through will no longer work because of these population increases. Instead, if leaders want to continue in power, they will have to promote economic growth in a more dynamic manner.Making Africa Work is a first-hand account and handbook of how to ensure growth beyond commodities and create jobs in the continent.Key FeaturesPaperback: 256 pagesPublisher: Hurst; 1 edition (September 15, 2017)Language: EnglishISBN-10: 1849048738ISBN-13: 978-1849048736

Burden Of Service By Mohammed Bello Adoke
In 2011, the Nigerian government brokered a $1.3 billion deal between Royal Dutch Shell, Eni S.p.A. of Italy and Malabu Oil & Gas Ltd of Nigeria for one of Africa's richest oil fields (“OPL 245”). The transaction—finalised after thirteen years of mutual suspicion, bitter litigation, emotional blackmail and dirty intrigues—has caught global attention and attracted criminal proceedings. The middlemen are now in jail and officials of the international oil companies are facing trial in an Italian court over alleged corruption. Mohammed Bello Adoke was the Nigerian Attorney-General who gave the legal advice on the complicated transaction. He saved his country from an impending $2 billion award in favour of Shell by the International Centre for the Settlement of International Disputes (ICSID), an organ of the World Bank. But he has been hounded, victimised, scandalised and forced into exile for his service to his fatherland. In recounting his five-year experience in government, Bello Adoke reveals the details of the billion-doll*r oil deal and unveils the web of local and international intrigues, deceit, lies and conspiracy around an avoidable scandal.Key FeaturesPublisher: Clink Street Publishing (November 7, 2019)Publication Date: November 7, 2019Language: EnglishASIN: B07XPBKBXF

The Next Africa By Jake Bright, Aubrey Hruby
The Ne*t Africa, an Axiom Best Business Book Award winner, will change the way people think about the continent. The old narrative of an Africa disconnected from the global economy, depicted by conflict or corruption, and heavily dependent on outside donors is fading. A wave of transformation driven by business, modernization, and a new cadre of remarkably talented Africans is thrusting the continent from the world's margins to the global mainstream.In the coming decades the magnitude of Africa's markets and rising influence of its people will intersect with other key trends to shape a new era, one in which Africa's progress finally overshadows its challenges, transforming an emerging continent into a global powerhouse. The Ne*t Africa captures this story.Authors Jake Bright and Aubrey Hruby pair their collective decades of Africa experience with several years of direct research and interviews. Packed with profiles; personal stories, research and analysis, The Ne*t Africa is a paradigm-shifting guide to the events, trends, and people reshaping Africa's relationship to the world.Bright and Hruby detail the cross-cutting trends prompting Silicon Valley venture capital funds and firms like GE, IBM, and Proctor & Gamble to make major investments in African economies, while describing how Africans are stimulating Milan runways, Hollywood studios, and London p*p charts.The Ne*t Africa introduces readers to the continent's burgeoning technology movement, rising entrepreneurs, groundbreaking philanthropists, and cultural innovators making an impact in music, fashion, and film. Bright and Hruby also connect Africa's transformation to its contemporary immigrant diaspora, illustrating how this increasingly affluent group will serve as the thread that pulls the continent's success together.Finally, The Ne*t Africa suggests a fresh framework for global citizens, public policy-makers, and CEOs to approach Africa. It will no longer be "The Hopeless Continent", nor will it become an overnight utopia. Bright and Hruby offer a more nuanced, net-sum, and data-rich approach to analyzing an increasingly complex continent, reconciling its continued challenges with rapid progress.The Ne*t Africa describes a future of a more globally-connected Africa where its leaders and citizens wield significant economic, cultural, and political power--a future in which Americans will be more likely to own African stocks, work for companies doing business in Africa, buy African hits from iTunes, see Nigerian actors win Oscars, and learn new African names connected to tech moguls and billionaires.Key FeaturesPublisher: Thomas Dunne Books (July 21, 2015)Language: EnglishISBN-10: 125006371XISBN-13: 978-1250063717

21 Lessons For The 21st Century + Sapiens
In Sapiens, he explored our past. In Homo Deus, he looked to our future. Now, one of the most innovative thinkers on the planet turns to the present to make sense of today & #39;s most pressing issues. How do computers and robots change the meaning of being human? How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news? Are nations and religions still relevant? What should we teach our children? Yuval Noah Harari & #39;s 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is a probing and visionary investigation into today & #39;s most urgent issues as we move into the uncharted territory of the future. As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive. In twenty-one accessible chapters that are both provocative and profound, Harari builds on the ideas explored in his previous books, untangling political, technological, social, and existential issues and offering advice on how to prepare for a very different future from the world we now live in: How can we retain freedom of choice when Big Data is watching us? What will the future workforce look like, and how should we ready ourselves for it? How should we deal with the threat of terrorism? Why is liberal democracy in crisis? Harari & #39;s unique ability to make sense of where we have come from and where we are going has captured the imaginations of millions of readers. Here he invites us to consider values, meaning, and personal engagement in a world full of noise and uncertainty. When we are deluged with irrelevant information, clarity is power. Presenting complex contemporary challenges clearly and accessibly, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century is essential reading.

How To Think Politically By James Bernard Murphy And Graeme Garrard
"A wonderful introduction to history's most influential scribblers."--Steven PinkerWhat is truly at stake in politics? Nothing less than how we should live, as individuals and as communities. This book goes beyond the surface headlines, the fak* news and the hysteria to explore the timeless questions posed and answers offered by a diverse group of the 30 greatest political thinkers who have ever lived.Are we political, economic, or religious animals? Should we live in small city-states, nations, or multinational empires? What values should politics promote? Should wealth be owned privately or in common? Do animals also have rights? There is no idea too radical for this global assortment of thinkers, which includes: Confucius; Plato; Augustine; Machiavelli; Burke; Wollstonecraft; Marx; Nietzsche; Gandhi; Qutb; Arendt; Nussbaum, Naess and Rawls.In each brief chapter, the authors paint a vivid portrait of these often prescient, always compelling political thinkers, showing how their ideas grew out of their own dramatic lives and times and evolved beyond them. Now more than ever we need to be reminded that politics can be a noble, inspiring and civilising art. And if we want to understand today's political world, we need to understand the foundations of politics and its architects. This is the perfect guide to both.Key FeaturesCover: PaperbackLanguage: EnglishAuthor: James Bernard Murphy and Graeme GarrardTitle: How To Think Politically By James Bernard Murphy And Graeme Garrard

Oil, Politics And Violence: Nigeria's Military Coup Culture
This is a ground breaking book by historian Max Siollun about the relationship between oil and military rule in Nigeria. Modern Nigeria cannot be understood without reference to its era of military rule. Military rule and oil wealth effected cataclysmic changes in Nigeria that nearly tore the country apart on several occasions. 40 years after the end of the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, Max Siollun answers the key questions that go to the root of the Nigerian nation:*Who were the key personalities and events that caused the Nigeria/Biafra civil war?*What is the root of the Niger Delta oil conflict and the "curse of oil"?*How has Nigeria managed to endure successive military coups, civil war, ethnic violence and still remain united?*The role of Babangida, Ojukwu, Abacha, Obasanjo, Yar'Adua and Buhari in previous military coup plots and Nigerian governments.The book's style is that of a fast paced dramatised narrative that will bring the characters and the story to life in a manner that will engage the casual, journalistic or academic reader. Those who have read the book have described it as the most detailed published analysis of the major events and controversies of Nigeria from independence until the 1976 assassination of its then Head of State General Murtala Muhammed. These include the traumatic January and July coups of 1966, the unprecedented magnanimity of the federal leader General Gowon after Nigeria's civil war, the post war stewardship of Gowon, and an hour by hour reconstruction of the events leading up to the 1976 Dimka coup in which Gowon's successor General Murtala Muhammed was killed.The book is the definitive reference point for Nigeria's political life between 1960 and 1976. It examines the controversies of that era with the encyclopaedic detail and penetrating analysis that is Max Siollun's trademark. No previous text has exhaustively analysed these events or this period in Nigeria's history. What lessons can be learned from the events and mistakes of this period? How can Nigeria avoid repeating those mistakes? Max Siollun answers these questions and many more.Key FeaturesMax Siollun is a historian and commentator on Nigerian political and governmental issues, specializing in Nigerian history and the Nigerian military's participation in politics. Although born in Nigeria, he was educated in England and is a graduate of the University of London. For the past decade has been a well known columnist for several publications on Nigerian history and contemporary affairs.His balanced critiques on Nigerian history and the Nigerian military s intervention in politics has given him a reputation as one of the most renowned scholars on Nigeria's posy-independence history, and unprecedented access to documentary and eyewitness sources regarding Nigeria's history.

The Prince By Niccolo Machiavelli
"The Prince" was written by Niccolo' Machiavelli in the 1500s. It has continued to be a best seller in many languages. The Prince is a classic book that explores the attainment, maintenance, and utilization of political power in the western world. Machiavelli wrote The Prince to demonstrate his skill in the art of the state, presenting advice on how a prince might acquire and hold power. Machiavelli defended the notion of rule by force rather than by law. Accordingly, "The Prince" seems to rationalize a number of actions done solely to perpetuate power. It is an examination of power-its attainment, development, and successful use.There have been many political philosophies published throughout the time of literate man, but few have made such an impact in so few words as Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince. This eminently quotable treatise on the nature of rulers is unsettling in that it does not merely discuss the specific political geography of 16th century Europe, a world comprised of kings and nobles who ruled absolutely; it has endured for nearly 500 years because it is an all-encompassing understanding of men in power, and the common traits, motives and struggles which have characterized leaders from Roman emperors to modern-day presidents.Key FeaturesThere have been many political philosophies published throughout the time of literate man.Few have made such an impact in so few words as Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince.The eminently quotable treatise on the nature of rulers is unsettling in that it does not merely discuss the specific political geography of 16th century Europe, a world comprised of kings and nobles who ruled absolutely.It has endured for nearly 500 years because it is an all-encompassing understanding of men in power and the common traits, motives and struggles which have characterized leaders from Roman emperors to modern-day presidents.

The Tragedy Of Victory: On-the-spot Account Of The Nigeria-Biafra War In The Atlantic Theatre
The Tragedy of Victory: On-the-Spot Account of the Nigeria-Biafra War in the Atlantic Theatre is a chronological narrative of the war that lasted from July 6, 1967 to January 15, 1970. With about 500 photographs and maps and facts, told with accuracy, the well-organised and efficient Third Marine Commandos, earlier commanded by Col. Benjamin Adekunle (with Lt. Col. G. Alabi-Isama, as the Chief of Staff) had already controlled the Atlantic coast from Bonny to Calabar before Col. Olusegun Obasanjo's arrival as the new commander . This most revealing book is in three parts. The first part is an account of the author's early life and his first encounter with the army. Under the watchful eyes of a mother who gave the best in moral education to a son of promise, Alabi-Isama's life got shaped by a pre-destined career where the cap really fitted. The second part is about the real combat. It outlines, in detail, the strategies and tactics the commandos employed during the historic 480km trek from Calabar to Port Harcourt and narrates the hostile climate, terrain environment, health and survival hazards they had to surmount on the 30-day march. The think-tank, the mapping out of operations and disciplined control of men and materials by Alabi-Isama, the chief of staff, as well as the officers of 3 Marine Commando Division of the Nigerian army, sustained the Nigerian side of the conflict. This section concludes with the final successful push by the commandos into Uli-Ihiala, Biafra's ‘centre of gravity,' a move that ended the war following the surrender of Biafra. The third part is an expose on Obasanjo's book, My Command. The author contests Obasanjo's claims about the war as being inconsistent with the truth and maintains that it is a tragedy that the real fighters of the war for the unity of Nigeria had not been acknowledged to date. Rather, they wallow in poverty and are discredited by their military leaders who assumed political offices with all the accompanying largesse.The book is a rich manual, a repository of invaluable information, a document that gives a precise and veritable first-person account of the Nigerian civil war, in the Atlantic theatre.

Boko Haram And Its Suicide Squad: The Confession Of A Jihadist
A remorseful jihadist confesses his jihadi crime and atrocities to an investigative journalist, Johnny Cameron, on a dangerous assignment in Borno State, northeast of Nigeria, to cover the kidnapping of five westerners, by Boko Haram. Cameron's assignment took him to Boko Haram's stronghold, where the journalist found himself in an uncharted territory of satanic terrorism. After months of constantly dodging bullets and suicide bombers, Cameron realized that Boko Haram was more determined, and deadly than the Nigerian military. Cameron knew that he must be brave and smart if he wanted to survive a war that seemed bigger than the war in Syria. The acts of murder, mayhem and carnage, form the nucleus of this book of terrorism, which is essentially a work of fiction.Key FeaturesPaperback: 268 pagesPublisher: CreateSpace Independent Publishing Platform (May 11, 2014)Language: EnglishISBN-10: 149953101XISBN-13: 978-1499531015Product Dimensions: 6 x 0.6 x 9 inchesShipping Weight: 1 pounds

The Tragedy Of Victory: On-the-spot Account Of The Nigeria-Biafra War In The Atlantic Theatre
The Tragedy of Victory: On-the-Spot Account of the Nigeria-Biafra War in the Atlantic Theatre is a chronological narrative of the war that lasted from July 6, 1967 to January 15, 1970. With about 500 photographs and maps and facts, told with accuracy, the well-organised and efficient Third Marine Commandos, earlier commanded by Col. Benjamin Adekunle (with Lt. Col. G. Alabi-Isama, as the Chief of Staff) had already controlled the Atlantic coast from Bonny to Calabar before Col. Olusegun Obasanjo's arrival as the new commander . This most revealing book is in three parts. The first part is an account of the author's early life and his first encounter with the army. Under the watchful eyes of a mother who gave the best in moral education to a son of promise, Alabi-Isama's life got shaped by a pre-destined career where the cap really fitted. The second part is about the real combat. It outlines, in detail, the strategies and tactics the commandos employed during the historic 480km trek from Calabar to Port Harcourt and narrates the hostile climate, terrain environment, health and survival hazards they had to surmount on the 30-day march. The think-tank, the mapping out of operations and disciplined control of men and materials by Alabi-Isama, the chief of staff, as well as the officers of 3 Marine Commando Division of the Nigerian army, sustained the Nigerian side of the conflict.

How Europe Underdeveloped Africa By Walter Rodney
Before a bomb ended his life in the summer of 1980, Walter Rodney had created a powerful legacy. This pivotal work, "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa", had already brought a new perspective to the question of underdevelopment in Africa. His Marxist analysis went far beyond the heretofore accepted approach in the study of Third World underdevelopment. "How Europe Underdeveloped Africa" is an excellent introductory study for the student who wishes to better understand the dynamics of Africa's contemporary relations with the West.

Reforming The Unreformable: Lessons From Nigeria
Okonjo-Iweala writes spare, straightforward prose about an extraordinary undertaking: reduction of corruption in a country internationally famous for it. And that's just one of her challenges. She also has to stabilize an economy dependent on volatile oil prices; develop a persuasive argument for the cancellation of foreign debt; and keep her job.A great deal of the book is technocratic. There are few accounts of dramatic meetings or personal confrontations; heavy on the policy choices. However -- her biggest challenge is corruption. And corruption always has a beneficiary. Nigeria's larcenous class fought hard. Okonjo-Iweala does mention the political side: seeking support from the people of Nigeria and from the elected President. And she frankly acknowledges the role of politics in supporting or hindering reform.One of the worst problems is that previous generations of international loans went to kleptocratic rulers who simply stole much of it, leaving the current government with a very difficult debt problem and little popular support for paying off the old loans or ever borrowing any more money.The author focuses the entire book on her experiences in Nigeria. However, a great deal of the problems and solutions are universal. If your government has borrowed money that it can't pay back -- if your public payroll is bloated by decades of sweetheart deals -- if a business person can't get a loan, or can't get the permits they need, without political juice -- then you've got the same problems. May your President and your Finance Minister read this book, and may you hold them accountable for honest government.Key FeaturesPublisher: The MIT Press; Reprint edition Language: EnglishISBN-10: ISBN-13:

1966 Crisis And The Evolution Of Nigerian Politics
This book is an excellent historical reconstruction of the traumatic events of 1966 and how they contributed to the current political malaise in Nigeria. The reader will enjoy the way Chief Osuchukwu traced the origin of Nigeria's contemporary problems to the unresolved and obfuscated issues that erupted in that crucial era. The book has done a wonderful work in examining and exposing the insidious role of ethnicity in Nigerian politics and equally the role of the military in exacerbating Nigeria's political problems as initiators and active participants in the killings of 1966.One interesting revelation is the nature of the emergence of the military on the political scene and how it compromised their position as symbols of national unity and protectors of the citizenry. The military leaders that emerged from the catastrophic events of 1966 were as Chief Osuchukwu rightly put it; 'neither national patriots nor revolutionaries'. They emerged from the ethnic confrontation of 1966 and again as Chief Osuchukwu rightly put it, they hardly grew above their tribal angst and 'instead of engendering, they hindered a healthy national growth'.Today, Nigeria is paying the price for the atrocities and failings of the past leaders and the current state of the nation do not give much cause for joy. Hence the appropriateness of this book's advocacy for a new perspective politics of real issues that transcends ethnic bigotry and place all Nigerians as individuals with rights, privileges, interests and needs. The book is a timely warning as Nigeria dances on the precipice and I highly recommend it to any reader who wishes to have an understanding of Nigerian political scene and its history.Key FeaturesPrint Length:Publisher: Creativepeople Nigeria Ltd; 1 editionPublication Language: EnglishAuthor: Emmanuel Chigozie Osuchukwu

The Politics Of The Human
The human is a central reference point for human rights. But who or what is that human? And given its long history of exclusiveness, when so many of those now recognised as human were denied the name, how much confidence can we attach to the term? This book works towards a sense of the human that does without substantive accounts of 'humanity' while also avoiding their opposite - the contentless versions that deny important differences such as race, gender and sexuality. Drawing inspiration from Hannah Arendt's anti-foundationalism, Phillips rejects the idea of 'humanness' as grounded in essential characteristics we can be shown to share. She stresses instead the human as claim and commitment, as enactment and politics of . In doing so, she engages with a range of contemporary debates on human dignity, humanism, and post-humanism, and argues that none of these is necessary to a strong politics of the human.

Why Nations Fail By Daron Acemoglu, James Robinson
The Origins of Power, Prosperity and Poverty.Brilliant and engagingly written, "Why Nations Fail" answers the question that has stumped the experts for centuries: Why are some nations rich and others poor, divided by wealth and poverty, health and sickness, food and famine? Is it culture, the weather, geography? Perhaps ignorance of what the right policies are? Simply, no. None of these factors is either definitive.Otherwise, how do we explain why Botswana has become one of the fastest growing countries in the world, while other African nations, such as Zimbabwe, the Congo, and Sierra Leone, are mired in poverty and violence? Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson conclusively show that it is man-made political and economic institutions that underlie economic success (or lack of it). Korea, to take just one of their fascinating examples, is a remarkably homogeneous nation, yet the people of North Korea are among the poorest on earth while their brothers and sisters in South Korea are among the richest. The south forged a society that created incentives, rewarded innovation, and allowed everyone to participate in economic opportunities. The economic success thus spurred was sustained because the government became accountable and responsive to citizens and the great mass of people. Sadly, the people of the north have endured decades of famine, political repression, and very different economic institutions—with no end in sight. The differences between the Koreas is due to the politics that created these completely different institutional trajectories. Based on fifteen years of research, Acemoglu and Robinson marshall extraordinary historical evidence from the Roman Empire, the Mayan city-states, medieval Venice, the Soviet Union, Latin America, England, Europe, the United States, and Africa to build a new theory of political economy with great relevance for the big questions of today, including: - China has built an authoritarian growth machine. Will it continue to grow at such high speed and overwhelm the West? - Are America's best days behind it? Are we moving from a virtuous circle in which efforts by elites to aggrandize power are resisted to a vicious one that enriches and empowers a small minority? - What is the most effective way to help move billions of people from the rut of poverty to prosperity? More philanthropy from the wealthy nations of the West? Or learning the hard-won lessons of Acemoglu and Robinson's breakthrough ideas on the interplay between inclusive political and economic institutions? Why Nations Fail will change the way you look at—and understand—the world.Key FeaturesA book.Authors: Daron Acemoglu, James Robinson. Genre: Politics.This book presents to you insights on why some nations are rich and others poor, to help in government policy decisions.

Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous: The Story Behind The Headlines
A frontline account of how to fight corruption, from Nigeria's former finance minister Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.In Fighting Corruption Is Dangerous, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has written a primer for those working to root out corruption and disrupt vested interests. Drawing on her experience as Nigeria's finance minister and that of her team, she describes dangers, pitfalls, and successes in fighting corruption. She provides practical lessons learned and tells how anti-corruption advocates need to equip themselves. Okonjo-Iweala details the numerous ways in which corruption can divert resources away from development, rewarding the unscrupulous and depriving poor people of services.Okonjo-Iweala discovered just how dangerous fighting corruption could be when her 83-year-old mother was kidnapped in 2012 by forces who objected to some of the government's efforts at reforms led by Okonjo-Iweala―in particular a crackdown on fraudulent claims for oil subsidy payments, a huge drain on the country's finances. The kidnappers' first demand was that Okonjo-Iweala resign from her position on live television and leave the country. Okonjo-Iweala did not resign, her mother escaped, and the program of economic reforms continued. "Telling my story is risky," Okonjo-Iweala writes. "But not telling it is also dangerous." Her book ultimately leaves us with hope, showing that victories are possible in the fight against corruption.Key FeaturesPublisher: The MIT Press (April 20, 2018)Language: EnglishISBN-10: 0262038013ISBN-13: 978-0262038010Product Dimensions: 6 x 0.6 x 9 inches
