Dilemmas Of Weak States: Africa And Transnational Terrorism In The Twenty-First Century (Contemporary Perspectives on Developing Societies) (Hardcover), by Tatah Mentan. Ashgate Publishing (October 30, 2004).
Given the dramatic changes that have taken place in global politics in recent years (especially following September 11, 2001), it is time to examine a series of critical issues confronting the global political economy. One of the most important of these issues is terrorism and its relationship with weak states. This book examines the weak state-terrorism nexus with particular emphasis on Africa. Specifically, it provides an in-depth analysis of state weakness, poverty, and the opportunities offered by the latter for the breeding of terrorism and terrorists. It also looks at the part played by radical Islam in transnational terrorism in Africa. Emerging from this study is recognition of a need for the international system to analyze a wide range of issues that contribute to the weakening of African states.  Information

Nkrumah's Legacy and Africa's Triple Heritage between Globallization and Counter Terrorism (Paperback), by Ali Mazrui. Ghana Univ. Press (January 1, 2000).
This publication comprises the revised texts of a series of three lectures, the Aggrey-Frazer- Guggisberg Memorial lectures, delivered by the renowned scholar, at the University of Ghana in 2002. The first lecture explores globalisation as the product of religion, technology, economy and empire. It postulates that globalisation can be positive or negative, depending upon the values it is realised. The second lecture raises question such as: Is there such a thing as 'global Africa'? Has the 'black experience' itself been globalised, with Ghana as a major actor in that globalisation? How does this relate to the shadow of terrorism and counter-terrorism? The third lecture focuses on some of the key personalities of Africa's anti-colonial history, examining how Africa has sought to move from the shadows of globalisation, in quest of an empowered and constructive role in the global order.

Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism. An Africa Perspective. (Paperback), by T.A. Imobighe and A.N.T. Eguavoen. Heinemann Educational Books ( Nigeria) (July 9, 2007).
Seven Africanist scholars from the African Strategic and Peace Research Group in Nigeria here address the threat of terrorism in the context of the global strategic climate. The study is against the background of the altered shape of the global security equation, and the devalued utility of the notion of security through state-centric military preparedness. They posit that failure to grasp its exact nature is leading to the spread to parts of Africa hitherto regarded as relatively safe. Further the adverse socio-political conditions on the continent have increased Africa's vulnerability. They examine areas where the experiences of other regions are relevant, providing both a regional and global context. Professor Thomas Imobighe is Director of the Centre for Strategic and Development Studies at Ambrose Alli University, Edo State. Dr. Agatha Eguavoen is Reader and Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology at Ambrose Alli University, Edo State.  Information
