Post colonial militaries have a history of periodically intervening in the political sphere. This book examines one such occurrence on the Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago which experienced a military mutiny in the midst of the Black Power Revolution of 1970. The book examines this uprising from the perspective of the military acting as a pressure group upon the state for its own interests. The questions raised here echo those raised in the summer of 2013 when the Egyptian military acted as an interest group in the political sphere. The role of the military in developing countries remains a perplexing question moreso when globalisation and the changing focus of state security is considered. The juxtaposition of an unrelated mutiny in the midst of a revolution is also examined.
