♥ Book Title : Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram: Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution
☯ Full Synopsis : "Since the unification of Southern and Northern Nigeria in 1914, the country has been rife with violence, poverty, inequity, and corruption. For decades it has barely functioned, and even now Nigerians face adversity in the absence of a pragmatic solution... In his book, “Nigeria, Biafra, and Boko Haram: Ending the Genocides Through Multistate Solution”, author Osita Ebiem fashions a compelling argument for finally partitioning Nigeria into distinct countries. Through the use of the multi-state solution and the principle of Self Determination, the widely diverse Nigerian ethnic identifications—Igbo, Yoruba, Hausa/Fulani—would be unimpeded in practicing their religious, cultural, and social differences and help initiate and accelerate growth, prosperity, end impunity and entrench sanity, law and order in the various emerging new countries.. With detailed precision, Ebiem explores the annals of Nigerian history and explains in clear terms the evolution of a country forced together by European commercial interests. The portrait of an utterly disastrous One Nigeria is often haunting and unbelievable; and though the country and its people have endured trauma beyond comprehension, Ebiem offers practical solutions, which can reroute Nigeria’s path and ultimately begin the long process of healing."Article| Osita Ebiem| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Genocide
☯ Full Synopsis : "Genocide occurs in every time period and on every continent. Using the 1948 U.N. definition of genocide as its departure point, this book examines the main episodes in the history of genocide from the beginning of human history to the present. Norman M. Naimark lucidly shows that genocide both changes over time, depending on the character of major historical periods, and remains the same in many of its murderous dynamics. He examines cases of genocide as distinct episodes of mass violence, but also in historical connection with earlier episodes. Unlike much of the literature in genocide studies, Naimark argues that genocide can also involve the elimination of targeted social and political groups, providing an insightful analysis of communist and anti-communist genocide. He pays special attention to settler (sometimes colonial) genocide as a subject of major concern, illuminating how deeply the elimination of indigenous peoples, especially in Africa, South America, and North America, influenced recent historical developments. At the same time, the "classic" cases of genocide in the twentieth Century - the Armenian Genocide, the Holocaust, Rwanda, and Bosnia -- are discussed, together with recent episodes in Darfur and Congo."Article| Norman M.

♥ Book Title : Hidden Genocides
☯ Full Synopsis : "Why are some genocides prominently remembered while others are ignored, hidden, or denied? Consider the Turkish campaign denying the Armenian genocide, followed by the Armenian movement to recognize the violence. Similar movements are building to acknowledge other genocides that have long remained out of sight in the media, such as those against the Circassians, Greeks, Assyrians, the indigenous peoples in the Americas and Australia, and the violence that was the precursor to and the aftermath of the Holocaust. The contributors to this collection look at these cases and others from a variety of perspectives. These essays cover the extent to which our biases, our ways of knowing, our patterns of definition, our assumptions about truth, and our processes of remembering and forgetting as well as the characteristics of generational transmission, the structures of power and state ideology, and diaspora have played a role in hiding some events and not others. Noteworthy among the collection’s coverage is whether the trade in African slaves was a form of genocide and a discussion not only of Hutus brutalizing Tutsi victims in Rwanda, but of the execution of moderate Hutus as well. Hidden Genocides is a significant contribution in terms of both descriptive narratives and interpretations to the emerging subfield of critical genocide studies.

♥ Book Title : Remembering Genocide
☯ Full Synopsis : "In Remembering Genocide an international group of scholars draw on current research from a range of disciplines to explore how communities throughout the world remember genocide. Whether coming to terms with atrocities committed in Namibia and Rwanda, Australia, Canada, the Punjab, Armenia, Cambodia and during the Holocaust, those seeking to remember genocide are confronted with numerous challenges. Survivors grapple with the possibility, or even the desirability, of recalling painful memories. Societies where genocide has been perpetrated find it difficult to engage with an uncomfortable historical legacy. Still, to forget genocide, as this volume edited by Nigel Eltringham and Pam Maclean shows, is not an option. To do so reinforces the vulnerability of groups whose very existence remains in jeopardy and denies them the possibility of bringing perpetrators to justice. Contributors discuss how genocide is represented in media including literature, memorial books, film and audiovisual testimony. Debates surrounding the role museums and monuments play in constructing and transmitting memory are highlighted. Finally, authors engage with controversies arising from attempts to mobilise and manipulate memory in the service of reconciliation, compensation and transitional justice."Article| Nigel Eltringham, Pam Maclean| Statement ..."
