About this product
- DescriptionAssessing three of the most enduring civilian regimes in Africa-Botswana, Kenya, and, until the December 1999 coup, the Ivory Coast-Boubacar N'Diaye focuses on the role of civilian regimes in the institutionalization of civilian control. The author warns that only government legitimacy and a culture of genuine military professionalism are likely to assure civilian control of the military. N'Diaye calls for a bold conceptual shift in the study of African civil-military relations away from expedient short-term coup avoidance. Refreshingly, his study emphasizes the policies regimes enact instead of the structures of African societies or the personal idiosyncrasies of leaders. This book has important implications t only for understanding the causes and outcomes of coups in Africa, but also for the study of emerging democracies everywhere.
