In Jihad in Sub-Saharan Africa: Challenging the Narratives of the War on Terror, Dr. Marc-Antoine Pérouse de Montclos provides a corrective to the view of these jihadist groups as extensions of the Islamic State or al-Qaida, examining the history of the region’s Islamic movements and providing the context through which current conflicts can be better understood.

"Fairly Trading the World's Timber" details efforts to date and provides comprehensive proposals for much needed action.
