Upcoming book on Asaba Massacre

July 1, 2017

From Liz Bird:

Asaba Massacre book coverAlthough we have not been very active on our blog for a while, that doesn’t mean we haven’t been working! In fact, we’re excited to announce that our book is about to be published. The book, The Asaba Massacre: Trauma, Memory, and the Nigerian Civil War, will be published by Cambridge University Press on Aug. 31, 2017, just a few weeks before the 50th anniversary of the massacre at Oge-Osowa, Asaba.

We’ll be providing more information about events surrounding the anniversary. Meanwhile, the book is available for pre-order at C.U.P’s website, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble online.

      Good day. As authors, we do not distribute the book (in fact we have to buy our own copies). You would need to contact Cambridge University Press to purchase copies- they can be bought at a bulk rate for booksellers. I recommend that you email Briar May at: She should be able to help you.
