thoroughly researched and carefully judged antidote to the very shallow media and Nigerian government explanations for the insurgency In immense detail, with a very full bibliography of sources and much original interview material, Virginia Comolli has assembled much fascinating and illuminating information on the historical, cultural, political and socio economic roots of the movement and its relationship with mainstream but also sectarian Islam in Nigeria Keith Somerville, Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London, in African Arguments Virginia Comolli s book will be invaluable to policy makers confronting the challenge of Boko Haram Her approach is comprehensive and critical Her exposition of the theological roots of Boko Haram and their northern Nigerian setting provides a new and sophistical level of analysis of where the movement comes from and where it is going John Campbell, Ralph Bunche Senior Fellow for Africa Policy Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations CFR , New York, and former US Ambassador to Nigeria Virginia Comolli s book is a must read for anyone seeking to understand Nigeria or militant Islam in Africa Grounded in the political history of the country and in local social, ethnic, economic, and ideational context, Virginia s analysis debunks facile stereotypes about Boko Haram and the pan jihadi threat in Africa and dissects the multiple causes of the insurgency, its shape, and evolution Of high policy relevance, the book persuasively shows how long term as well as current policies of the Nigerian government generated many of the root causes of the discontent of Nigeria s north and worsened the insurgency Vanda Felbab Brown, Senior Fellow at the Brookings Institution and author of Aspiration and Ambivalence Strategies and Realities of Counterinsurgency and State building in Afghanistan Boko Haram is one of the fastest evolving Islamist militant movements in the world today In the span of just a few years, it has transformed itself from a localised group active in a remote corner of Nigeria into a full fledged insurgency threatening not only to Africa s most populous country and its biggest economy, but also the security of the subregion Virginia Comolli s book offers both policymakers and analysts a comprehensive introduction to an increasingly important, but poorly understood, phenomenon, one rooted in cultural history and religious belief as well political, economic, and social marginalization and the failure of governance Even those who will find themselves at disagreement with some of the author s conclusions will nevertheless find her meticulous exposition an invaluable resource J Peter Pham, Director of the Africa Center, Atlantic Council, and Editor in Chief, Journal of the Middle East and Africa Boko Haram simply the latest in Nigeria s many millenarian movements, or something new Virginia Comolli offers unique insight into the

for a time, its splinter group Ansaru From its inception an inward looking, almost parochial, movement, Boko Haram, and even so Ansaru, have now shown clear signs of regionalisation, expanding their operations across West Africa and forging links with al Qaeda affiliated groups Boko Haram s stated aim is to Islamise Africa s most populous country but, like earlier Nigerian Islamist groups, of which there is a long tradition in the Sahel, the discontent prompting young Nigerians and other young West African Muslims to join the insurgency is rooted in than just religious orthodoxy and cannot be disentangled from their economic, social and political marginalisation In spite of talks about dialogue and amnesty for those prepared to renounce violence, the Federal Government s response has
