Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0333637984, Hardcover)This study examines a political-military tradition in sub-Saharan Africa which has survived colonialism as well as the Cold War. Five modern insurgencies are evaluated: Madagascar 1947, Kenya (Mau Mau) 1952-63, Cameroon (UPC) 1955-70, Congo/Zaire (Kwilu) 1964-68, and Mozambique (RENAMO) 1977-92. These case-studies demonstrate a persistent link between traditional African religion and contemporary nationalist movements whose political as well as military significance has frquently been underestimated and often misunderstood.
