This is an examination of the nature and objectives of conflict in the major states of Eastern Africa in the nineteenth century. It focuses on highland Ethiopia, on the interlacustrine area of Buganda and its neighbours, and on the area of central Tanzania from the south of Lake Victoria to Lake Tanganyika.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A useful book that will serve as inspiration for future scholarship on violence and conflict in eastern Africa and beyond. AFRICAN HISTORY
An important and thoughtful overview that reminds us that African military history is worth studying in its own right, and that it illuminates much else about 'state and society'. AFRICAN STUDIES REVIEW
Although a large number of local and regional studies touch on warfare, few have made it a central theme and even fewer have given the topic the kind of thoughtful and wide-reaching treatment offered here. - Richard Waller
