Product description

Review

This is a truly insightful book on a subject-coups as means of seizing power-that has been little researched and written about. Naunihal Singh is a true pioneer in that regard, and we must commend him for making a unique contribution to military knowledge with this important, highly useful, and valuable book. * Biz India Magazine * Singh's book is an informative read-even if you're not planning a coup. * Washington Post * A powerful book on military coups. Singh's argument is convincing and straightforward.... Impressive. This reviewer would not be surprised if Seizing Power quickly establishes itself as a must-read for students of coups and military politics in the years to come. * Perspectives on Politics *

From the Back Cover

While coups drive a majority of regime changes and are responsible for the overthrow of many democratic governments, there has been very little empirical work on the subject. Seizing Power develops a new theory of coup dynamics and outcomes, drawing on 300 hours of interviews with coup participants and an original dataset of 471 coup attempts worldwide from 1950 to 2000. Naunihal Singh delivers a concise and empirical evaluation, arguing that understanding the dynamics of military factions is essential to predicting the success or failure of coups.

Singh draws on an aspect of game theory known as a coordination game to explain coup dynamics. He finds a strong correlation between successful coups and the ability of military actors to project control and the inevitability of success. Examining Ghana’s multiple coups and the 1991 coup attempt in the USSR, Singh shows how military actors project an image of impending victory that is often more powerful than the reality on the ground.

In addition, Singh also identifies three distinct types of coup dynamics, each with a different probability of success, based on where within the organization each coup originated: coups from top military officers, coups from the middle ranks, and mutinous coups from low-level soldiers.

"Singh’s book is an informative read—even if you’re not planning a coup."— Washington Post

"A powerful book on military coups. Singh's argument is convincing and straight forward.... Impressive. This reviewer would not be surprised if Seizing Power quickly establishes itself as a must-read for students of coups and military politics in the years to come."— Perspectives on Politics

"Naunihal Singh spells out a simple, yet powerful insight: the best way to understand military coups is by focusing on their dynamics rather than their correlates. He then goes on to show that coup outcomes are best predicted through a coordination framework, rather than by analyzing them as military or popularity contests. Fascinating and comprehensive, Seizing Power is the best piece of social science research on military coups so far. It should be read by all those interested in the study of political violence."–Stathis N. Kalyvas, Yale University

"Naunihal Singh’s highly original analysis of military coups rightly puts the dynamics within the military front and center. His book will change how we think of coups."—Nicolas van de Walle, Cornell University

Naunihal Singh is an assistant professor of international security studies at the Air War College in Alabama.
