Summary
At the center of many of Africa's violent conflicts are movements that do not seem to fit any established theories of armed resistance. "African Guerrillas" offers new models for understanding these movements, eschewing one-dimensional explanations. The authors build on - and in some cases debate - the insights provided in Christopher Clapham's groundbreaking work. They find a new generation of fighters - one that reflects rage against the machinery of a dysfunctional state. Their analysis of this phenomenon, combining thematic chapters and a range of representative case studies, is a crucial contribution to any effort to understand Africa's war-torn societies. -- Description from http://www.booktopia.com.au (July 15, 2014)
