The second book in the "Fractal Complexity" series continues its in-depth review of the works of major African and Black thinkers from the continent and the diaspora. Using a pluridisciplinary approach that combines linguistic presupposition and fractal analysis, the book examines the many levels of meaning and similarity of pattern in literary texts studied for mathematical modeling, thereby enriching both of the contributing fields of study. The book covers a diverse range of topics with insight and outstanding scholarship. Whether exploring the roles of Christianity and Islam, the contributions of Marcus Garvey and Toussaint L'Ouverture, or concepts such as a pax Africana and the underdevelopment of Africa, the material addresses the implicit assumptions on which the truth of any statement hangs. Each chapter includes an introduction to help contextualize the selection, a review of relevant literature, analysis of the reading, a conclusion, and a complete list of references and sources. "Fractal Complexity in the Works of Major Black Thinkers, Volume Two" can be used in upper-division and graduate level courses in political science, socio-linguistics, and public policy analysis. Abdul Karim Bangura holds Ph.D.s in political science, development economics, linguistics, computer science, and mathematics. Dr. Bangura is a professor of research methodology and political science at Howard University, and a researcher-in-residence at the Center for Global Peace in the School of International Service at American University. The author of 70 books and over 600 scholarly articles, Dr. Bangura won the prestigious 2012 Cecil B. Curry Book Award for African Mathematics: From Bones to Computers.

This book entails a pragmatic analysis of the African National Anthem, Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika, within a linguistic framework. By delineating the pragmatic features of the anthem, its philosophical symbolic meanings are teased out. This is important because symbols are critical in promoting social integration, fostering legitimacy, inducing loyalty, gaining compliance, and providing citizens with security and hope. Political symbols are also used as tools to address the contradictions of national consciousness and nation-building, nationhood, ideal governance, socioeconomic organization, and foreign policy preferences.

Ted Kosmatka's sensational new thriller, Prophet of Bones, thrusts readers into an alternate present. Paul Carlson, a brilliant young scientist, is summoned from his laboratory job to the remote Indonesian island of Flores to collect DNA samples from the ancient bones of a strange, new species of tool user unearthed by an archaeological dig. The questions the find raises seem to cast doubt on the very foundations of modern science, which has proven the world to be only 5,800 years old, but before Paul can fully grapple with the implications of his find, the dig is violently shut down by paramilitaries. Paul flees with two of his friends, yet within days one has vanished and the other is murdered in an attack that costs Paul an eye, and very nearly his life. Back in America, Paul tries to resume the comfortable life he left behind, but he can't cast the questions raised by the dig from his mind. Paul begins to piece together a puzzle which seems to threaten the very fabric of society, but world's governments and Martial Johnston, the eccentric billionaire who financed Paul's dig, will stop at nothing to silence him.

After almost three centuries of employing Western research methodologies, many African communities, both on the continent and throughout the world, remain marginalized in contemporary discourse. It is obvious that these Western methodologies have done relatively little good for Africans. To rectify this oversight and bring these African communities to the fore, a shift in perspective is needed, and this book posits the adoption of alternative, African-centered research methodologies as a solution. Employing such methodologies would enable African communities to define their unique identities from their unique perspectives and would help offer a long-overdue challenge to entrenched European paradigms of Africans as the other. To enable readers to apply a methodology systematically in investigating a phenomenon of interest to him/her, chapters in African-Centered Research Methodologies include: - An introduction to the method discussed - A definition of the method - The sub-areas of the method - A brief history and brief backgrounds of the pioneers of the method - Major research questions investigated by the method - Major concepts and/or theories of the method - Major research topics covered by the method - Types of methodological approaches employed - Major academic journals and publications that publish works utilizing the method - A sample of outstanding scholarly works that have employed the method - A conclusion Abdul Karim Bangura is Professor of Research Methodology and Political Science at Howard University and Researcher-in-Residence of Abrahamic Connections and Islamic Peace Studies at the Center for Global Peace in the School of International Service at American University. He holds a PhD in Political Science, a PhD in Development Economics, a PhD in Linguistics, a PhD in Computer Science, and a PhD in Mathematics. He is the author and editor/contributor of 63 books and more than 500 scholarly articles. He was president and United Nations Ambassador of the Association of Third World Studies, and Dr. Bangura is a member of many other scholarly and civic organizations. The winner of many teaching and other scholarly and community service awards, he is fluent in about a dozen African and six European languages, and is studying to strengthen his proficiency in Arabic, Hebrew, and hieroglyphics."
