Since 9/11, despite extensive international efforts against global terrorism, there has been a
misfocussing on the terrorism in Africa. This timely book draws upon the author’s experience as a
former intelligence analyst, to give an account of terrorism in East and West Africa in the first
two decades after the 9/11 attacks. It analyses why there is an incorrect strategic approach to this
threat and will serve as a valuable compendium detailing terrorist groups and their activities in
Africa to those studying terrorism.
