Armies and Democracy in the New Africa: Lessons from Nigeria and South Africa. Authored by Dr. Steven Metz, Dr. Kent Hughes Butts.
In October 1994, the Strategic Studies Institute sponsored a roundtable on democratization in Sub-Saharan Africa. Particular attention was paid to the role the U.S. military and Department of Defense played in democracy support. This study developed from a paper presented at the roundtable. Dr. Butts and Dr. Metz reject the notion that the political culture of African states allows or even encourages military intervention in politics.
