History of Umkhonto we Sizwe's operations across southern Africa from the 1960s up to the 1990-4 negotiations between the ANC and the apartheid government. Includes chapters on post-transition violence and spy scandals.

"As rigorous - and disturbing - an account of insurgency and counterinsurgency in South Africa as you’ll find. Highly recommended." Deane-Peter Baker, Associate Professor of International and Political Studies, UNSW Canberra at the Australian Defence Force Academy

"A provocative book raising important questions about the toxic legacies of dysfunctional states’ violent repression of insurgencies: authoritarian security elites, urban violence and persistent criminal networks. Douek reaches far beyond South Africa in his analysis and arguments for meaningful security sector reform in post-conflict societies." Sue Onslow, Deputy Director & Reader in Commonwealth History, Institute of Commonwealth Studies, University of London

Daniel L. Douek teaches Political Science at McGill University and Concordia University in Montreal, Canada.
