Reviews: Navigating Terrains of War: youth and soldiering in Guinea-Bissau (2006) Oxford/New York: Berghahn

"For the increasingly numerous anthropologists [specializing in Peace and Conflict Studies in Anthropology] Henrik Vigh's book on young combatants in the war in Guinea-Bissau should be compulsory reading material."JRAI

"The book is remarkably successful in this ambitious endeavour [to address the tensions between structure and agency through the author's concept of social navigation] because it combines solidly researched and eloquently formulated ethnography with engagement of a wide range of theory.... it merits a cover-to-cover read."Journal of Peace Research

"In his excellent [book], Vigh offers a sophisticated and highly insightful analysis of mobilization and soldiering among contemporary urban African youths...This is a very welcome empirically based and theoretically sophisticated contribution to our understanding of one of Africa's recent ‘small wars'."Social Anthropology

"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."Ethnos

"Navigating Terrain of Wars represents a vivid effort to understand the complex world of war and poverty. In this masterful work, Vigh [...] poses not only poignant questions respecting the unresolved frustrations of an entire generation that passed politically from left to right, but also provides a serious framework to understand how violence works. This is, undoubtedly, one of the best books I have ever read in these types of topics. Magisterially explained throughout the ten chapters that form the project, Vigh reveals how poverty is conducive to warfare." Essays in Philosophy
