Overview

Coup Theories and Officers' Motives: Sri Lanka in Comparative Perspective by Donald L. Horowitz

Donald Horowitz presents a case study of an attempted military coup in Sri Lanka. On the basis of interviews with twenty-three participants in this attempted coup—a mine of information rarely available for a study like this—he provides first-hand evidence of the way officers' motives interact with social and political conditions to foster coup attempts.

Originally published in 1981.
