Arms and the People: Popular Movements and the Military from the Paris Commune to the Arab Spring


Manufacturer: Pluto Press

Product Information

'This book examines the relationship between mass movements and military institutions. Some argue that it is impossible to achieve and protect a revolution without the support of the army, but how can the support of the army be won?
Using a broad range of examples from world history, Arms and the Peopleexplores the impact of profound social polarisation on the internal cohesion of the state's "armed bodies of men" – and on the contested loyalties of soldiers. In this pioneering study of revolutionary change, the contributors examine historical moments in which a deep social crisis has penetrated military institutions and threatened to disable them.'

Edited by Mike Gonzalez and Houman Barekat. Pluto Press, 2013.
