Coups of Time Past (or What Antonio Trillanes Should Have Read First )

Randy David talks of authoritarian transitional coalition government, Francisco "Dodong" Nemenzo reflects on military insurgency and adventurism, Patricio Abinales explores the possibilities and limits of the military imagination, Carolina Hernandez compares participation in coup d'etat to rupturing one's hymen, and Alex Magno speaks of neofascists.

For a blast from the past, read this issue of Kasarinlan on military adventurism when it was still a tragedy and not yet a farce.
