Title: From Soldiers to Politicians: Transforming Rebel Movements After Civil War
Description: Boulder :Lynne Rienner Publishers, 2008 Hardcover. 295 pp.Library stamps. English text. Condition : very good.- In the transition from war-torn societies to stable multiparty democracies, what is the role of former rebel leaders? Can rebel movements effectively transform themselves from military to political organizations? From Soldiers to Politicians explores when and how militias succeed in reorienting their goals and practices toward legitimate political activities, and how external actors can support that practice.The authors present eight theoretically grounded country studies, focusing in each on the historical background of the rebel movement, its (attempted or successful) transformation into a political party, and the factors explaining success or failure. Bridging the academic-policy divide, they identify concrete lessons from previous transformations processes, as well as options for future international involvement.
