附註 1. Introduction -- 2. Political Violence under the Uganda National Liberation Front (UNLF) 1979-1980 -- 3. Political Violence under the Obote II Regime, 1980-1985 -- 4. Political Violence during the Tito Okello Regime, July 1985 to January 1986 -- 5. Political Violence under the Museveni Regime, 1985-2016
This book, the second of two parts, demonstrates that societies experiencing prolonged and severe crises of legitimacy are prone to intense and persistent political violence. The most significant factor accounting for the persistence of intense political violence in Uganda is the severe crisis of legitimacy of the state, its institutions, political incumbents and their challengers. This crisis of legitimacy, which is shaped by both internal and external forces, past and present, accounts for the remarkable continuity in the history of political violence since the construction of the state
