Abstract

'Soldiers in Revolt' examines the understudied phenomenon of military mutinies in Africa. Through interviews with former mutineers in three West African countries, Maggie Dwyer provides an intimate perspective on those who take the risky decision to revolt. This view from the lower ranks is key to comprehending the internal struggles that can threaten a military's ability to function effectively.
