Confronting Errors With the Truth: The Story of My Life and the Challenges of Governance
By Governor T.A. Orji
This book is an account of my stewardship both as a civil servant and a politician. I write not to celebrate self or to debunk frivolous and baseless allegations by my detractors, but to document for posterity my efforts to improve the welfare of fellow citizens. I also write to explain my approach to governance, my attitude to power, the philosophy and desire that motivate and drive me to act and behave the way I do. I write candidly about the circumstances of my early years; the people and events that shaped my life; my years in public service; my foray into politics; and my challenges as Governor of Abia State.
"Governor T.A. Orji is the beau ideal of the public servant whose commitment to public service is matched by love for humanity."--Goodluck Jonathan, President, Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Igbo Jurisprudence: An African Excercise in Legal Coherentism
By Francis O C Njoku, cmf
Igbo Jurisprudence: An African Exercise in Legal Coherentism is a theoretical endeavour to establish how Igbo African Jurisprudence can be rationalized along side Igbo African ontology. The book studies Igbo world and through a hermeneutical method makes explicit the philosophical and legal ideas implicit in it. Against a backdrop of a covenant theory of Igbo socio-political communication, it explains issues such as law, rights, rules, authority, morality and initiative democracy as tooted in Igbo African ontology. In specifically discussing the is-ought problem in Igbo Jurisprudence, this short but intense work proposes legal coherentism as a theory that ties together the natural law and the legal positivist inclinations of the Igbo socio-legal mind. Given the issues treated, this book is at once an essay in Igbo jurisprudence, and social/political theory.
"This book explores the fundamentals of our laws and the theoretical basis of our existence as a nation in a Savignyian sense....The author has shown how to root Igbo jurisprudence in Igbo ontology, and has resolved the problem of identity of Ndi-Igbo which, incidentally, is the greatest problem of the Igbos as a nation."--U. U. Chukwumaeze, Abia State University, Nigeria.

Enyi Biafra: Regimental Drill, Duty Songs, and Cadences from Biafra
By Johnston Akuma Kalu Njoku
This is an unusual songbook in many respects. In the sense that it presents the voice of the Other Ranks from Biafra, the songbook is unusual. Unlike most war and liberation songbooks the book contains musical notation and transcripts of the sung texts as well as the meanings and relevance of the songs. The writer, who rose from private to the rank of a Sergeant in the Biafran Army, weaves ethnographic and personal experience narratives around popular regimental drill and duty songs from Biafra. It is not often that one gets the chance to hear the members of the Other Ranks tell their own part of the stories of the wars they fought. That is another why in which this songbook is unique. It is also different in yet another way: The target audience is the Biafran recruits, privates, and corporals who fought the war together with the greater Igbo speaking peoples of Nigeria who experienced the events that led to Biafra, suffered in Biafra, and still faces, as a people, constant threats and absence of justice in contemporary Nigeria. Even though it is short, it captures the Biafran saga—good, bad, and ugly.
"Of all that I have read on the Biafran War - and I have read many of them - none made me laugh, bit my fist on my chest, think, sob and cry, all at the same time as much as Dr. Kalu's Enyi Biarfa"—Dr Chukwuemeka Uche.
J. Akuma-Kalu Njoku (Biafra Army #7667) has a BA in music from the University of Nigeria, MA in Historical Musicology from Michigan State University, and two PhDs in Ethnomusicology and Folklore from Indiana University with PhD minors in Anthropology and African Studies. Since 1992 Njoku has been teaching courses in World Music, Folklore, Ethnomusicology, and Peoples and Cultures of Africa at Western Kentucky University.
