Clayton, Dewey M. African Americans and the Politics of Congressional Redistricting. New York: Garland, 2000. Web. 7 Sept. 2015.
The book states that majority black districts are vital to ensuring equal representation of African Americans in Congress. The author claims that majority African Americans districts are being dismantled by conservatives and the Supreme Court. The author evaluates critics who contend that African American politicians can win elections in majority white districts without racial gerrymandering. This book provides details about the history of racial segregation, how whites use racial bloc voting, and the absence of minority success in non- African American districts. The book is divided into two parts. The book is an acceptable source on the subject due to the background of the author and the vast amount of research that has gone into writing this book. The author, Dewey M. Clayton, Ph.D., is a Political Science professor at Louisville University. He has published numerous journal articles and has published a book entitled The Presidential Campaign of Barack Obama: A Critical Analysis of a Racially Transcendent Strategy.
The Effect of Boko Haramâ€™s Insecurity on Nigeria Economy
An Annotated Bibliography
Onuoha, Freedom C. "The Audacity of the Boko Haram: Background, Analysis and Emerging Trend." Security Journal 25.2 (2012): 134â€“151. Web.
In his works, Onuoha portrays that Boko Haram are a bad signal to Foreign Investors and economic experts are predicting increased reduction in the influx of foreign investors in the country in forthcoming years. Trends in the FDI flows in Nigeria indicate that the investments plummeted to $6.1 billion in 2010 from $8.65b realized in the preceding fiscal year 2009. Onuoha obtained his statistics from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), which indicates a 78 percent drop in FDI. The quick drop in Foreign Investment in Nigeria will have a detrimental effect on Nigeria economy as FDI has a direct impact on the trade and local economic growth. FDI supplements local investment increasing the countries productivity. The most worrying fact, however, is the high dependency of the Nigerian oil sector on Foreign Direct Investment and how the GDP will be affected.
Loimeier, Roman. "Boko Haram: The Development of a Militant Religious Movement in Nigeria." Afrika Spectrum 47.2 (2012): 137â€“155. Print.
Nigeria has long been a country of varying regional strengths complementing each other. What lacks in the North is provided by the South and vice versa. Loimeier asserts that the increased attacks in the north have caused mass movement from the northern region. There is no evidence showing that migrants have returned to their respective states. Drawing from Loimeierâ€™s book, increased persistence in the crisis will cause a significant dearth of the regions professionals and artisans. Evidently, doctors from the region are fleeing, and the ones remaining do so because of few opportunities. The crisis is also causing reduced rent rates creating the opposite effect in the destination regions. Eventually, a lot of pressure is put on the inadequate infrastructure in the southern region. The author has lived in the country for over 10 years and gives the perspective as it is on the ground. The book examines Boko Haram from a historical perspective and considers the theological, social, political dynamics in its writing.
Comolli, Virginia. "The Regional Problem of Boko Haram." Survival 57.4 (2015): 109â€“117. Web.
The transport industry is one of the most impaired facets in Nigeriaâ€™s economy. Terrorism has affected transportation trips from the North to the South and vice versa. Comolliâ€™s journal has made a distinct contribution to the subject by observing the public transport facility in northern and southern Nigeria. Increased fear of attack has reduced the regular two trips per week to almost none. The road transport activity has been so dismal to the extent that getting a 13 or 59-seater bus requires twice as much effort as before the onslaught. The country has tried to improve on transport security by introducing checkpoints on major highways. The author shares the same sentiments as Onuoha about the inactivity levels in the North following mass departure.
