Item description for The Greening of Africa. Breaking Through in the Battle for Land and Food by Paul Harrison...

The author joined Yowerri Museveni's rebel army in 1982, and was subsequently a member of the Constituent Assembly which produced Uganda's constitution. Published posthumously, the book tells the inside story of a truly successful revolution and the rise to power of President Museveni. He provides a detailed account of the overthrow of Milton Obote's oppressive regime and the military dictatorship of General Tito Okello. He explains how Museveni and the National Resistance Army were able to gain power in Uganda by principled leadership and a national programme that has eschewed sectarianism and factionalism, to facilitate a lasting and prosperous peace in what is now one of the fastest growing economies in Africa.
