The coup remains the single most common form of power change throughout the world. The government being targeted by a coup attempt might be democratically elected, a long-standing dictatorship, or nothing more than a junta put in place by the previous month?s coup. The motivation is lust for power, patriotism, greed, or exploitation, but usually it is a combination of power, greed, and exploitation disguised as patriotism.

How to Stage a Military Coup explores these violent and often bloody appropriations of authority, alongside their underlying political, military, and social conditions. The book takes into account factors such as timing, media control, popular support, and government organizational structure, and draws on examples of failed and successful coups from all over the world.
