Searching for Boko Haram

A History of Violence in Central Africa

Scott MacEachern

  • Examines Boko Haram from a local historical perspective, which has not been characteristic of any writings on this insurgent organisation to this point
  • Investigates the local cultural contexts within which the group originated, paying attention to the ethnic and political aspects of the group in addition to the religious ones
  • Written from the perspective of someone who has worked in one of the main refuge areas of Boko Haram through the last 30+ years
