Can you explain the link we made in class on Monday between tribalism and the practice of clientelism and patronage
- Can you explain why tribalism and ethnic warfare were less visible in colonial times than after independence? Also, can you explain what Roessler, in his book Ethnic Politics, calls â€œThe Coup-Civil War Trap?â€ What does he mean by that? IMPORTANT: After explaining what it means in your own words, find ONE excerpt/quote in what you have read in Roesslerâ€™s Ethnic Politics on pages 147-204 or 207-265 that helps to explain what he means by the expression â€œThe Coup-Civil War Trap?â€
NOTE: Try to write in nice paragraphs and try to make sure the excerpt/quote is integrated seamlessly in your text in the most appropriate place that helps you support your explanations. This means you must use transitions such as:
As Roessler explains in his Ethnic Politics, â€œQuote here; quote here; quote hereâ€ (2016, page #).
