Arms and the People

Arms and the People: Popular Movements and the Military from the Paris Commune to the Arab Spring by Mike Gonzalez
English | Dec. 5, 2012 | ISBN: 0745332897 | 299 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Looking at a range of global historical experiences, Arms and the People 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?
explores 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. The different contributors examine a series of historical moments in which a crisis in the military institution has reflected a deeper social crisis which has penetrated that institution and threatened to disable it.
With a range of international contributors who have either studied or been directly involved in such social upheavals, is a pioneering contribution to the study of revolutionary change and will appeal to students and academics in history, politics and sociology.
