This paper discusses anthropologist, Robert B. Edgerton's "Africa's Armies From Honor to Infamy - a History From 1791 to the Present". The author of the paper summarizes the book and critiques Edgerton's lack of definition. The author also states that the book is lacking in-depth analysis of how and why African is infamous today. The paper suggests that a closer analysis of what is going on in Africa to what is going on in similar nations and regions across the world today and an explanation of how the hardships that Africa endure today related to the civil strife and militia would be beneficial for Edgerton's book.
