Through the concept of "social navigation," this book sheds light on the mobilization of urban youth in West Africa. Social navigation offers a perspective on praxis in situations of conflict and turmoil. It provides insights into the interplay between objective structures and subjective agency, thus enabling us to make sense of the opportunistic, sometimes fatalistic and tactical ways in which young people struggle to expand the horizons of possibility in a world of conflict, turmoil and diminishing resources.

Review:

"Though written accessibly, its principal preoccupations are theoretical. Vigh draws on a range of theorists... [and] social philosophers...Along the way he provides useful excursions through the literature on contemporary violence and African liberation movements...[The book] is among the most exciting and important contributions available today."

Book Description:

"Vigh has done a superb job in shedding new light on the civil war in Guinea-Bissau, and especially in showing the close linkages between the history of the Aguentas and that of political turmoil in the West African country...the quality of the research and the book's refreshing approach to the analysis of youth involvement in conflict...should appeal to scholars and practitioners interested in conflict dynamics in Africa."
