World Wars I & II, and the major natural disasters around the globe, left massive and frightening human death tolls. As if that has not been enough for humanity, the phenomenon of terrorism, has also surfaced to soak the world in another dreadful fear and immense need for ever increasing security measures over populations everywhere. While terrorist networks such as the Al Qaeda and the Taliban continue to impose terror across the globe, a smaller sect of terrorists
called Boko Haram, has succeeded in sending across a strong message to world leaders that, ‘size is not the issue’ but it’s how negligence on their part may make the smallest pin, pierce deepest across to the other side unnoticed, and as such, probably crumble the whole system.
This book illuminates the root causes of terrorism which had been duly instituted by United Nations Resolutions, especially within the parameters of transnational and organized crimes. It forwards the implications that, individual member States or their government representatives, if they would not be held as accomplices to barbaric terrorist actions, therefore, it is their place to individually and conjointly engage in effective mechanisms to erase the root causes of terrorism within and across their border territories.
In one way or the other, the literature, though very critical on human lives loss, further embraces the recent activism impacts of the Boko Haram which has made, especially the government of Cameroon and other West and Central African States to sit-up, and to beef up their internal and border security measures, which in turn, will be improving security concerns for the plight of their people. Convinced that, in practice, terrorist instincts or attitudes are neither alien nor innate but that which stem from a process of acculturation, the book highlights the sensitivity of the youths within urban setups in acquiring such human destructive attitudes. While shifting the anti-terrorist psychosocial behaviour pattern restructuring responsibility to the urban community’s social services, the study also demonstrates how the terrorist intimidator threats are constituted through the hard bargaining tactics of negotiation and conflict management processes, and thus, suggests to further researchers of interest, to build on counter-terrorist measures within the domain.
