Abstract

Oakland Journal Issue 23 cover, statement of responsibility, and table of contents
...states of the recently decolonized world, particularly during the Cold War, exploited a consistent flow of military hardware, aid, and advisers that Great Power patrons offered in return for strategic partnerships or access to commodities. Third World militaries and security forces thus frequently acquired the resources to resist domestic civilian control and extended their own control over their societies’ extractive and productive institutions. In short, they became welldeveloped protection rackets.
