Synopsis: Almost every anti-colonial struggle in the 20th century was led by an army of guerrillas, and no such struggle has succeeded without cooperation between the guerrillas and the local peasantry. This book examines what such 'cooperation' meant in the contexNorth America: University of California Press

Review: By examining the interaction of the guerrillas with the local mediums who are possessed by the spirit of dead ancestors he brilliantly explains how the ZANU liberation forces had to enter the social and cultural practice of the local peasantry ....Guns... an excellent book... Lan is already known in Britain as a playwright, shows a sensitivity for the living moment in dealing with his subject. He brings out admirably, in terms of the rapidly changing historical perspective, the spirit mediums' skill in... a breathtaking book combining science, politics and adventure. - GOOD BOOK GUIDE
...an opportunity taken with enormous panache and originality to write the ethnography of a rural revolution. - Adam Kuper in MAN
