Soldiers and Kinsmen in Uganda: The Making of a Military Ethnocracy
Soldiers and Kinsmen in Uganda: The Making of a Military Ethnocracy
By Ali A. Mazrui
Sage, 1975, 325 pp

Always interesting, though not always convincing, this group of essays ranges over Uganda's past (largely the Obote era) and present, African tradition and modern reassertions of it. Mazrui's rather fascinating brief for Amin as a military populist and reincarnation of the African warrior-leader omits a good deal.
