Ugandan Books

I found a cool bookstore (Aristoc Booklex Limited) at the Garden City Shopping center in Kampala today. For 82,000 shillings I got six books from local authors on security and stability in Uganda since independence. All six books were published by Fountain Publishers in Kampala:

- Roots of Instability in Uganda by Samwiri R. Karugire
- Tall Grass: Stories of Suffering and Peace in Northern Uganda by Carlos Rodriguez Soto
- Teso War 1986-1992: Causes and Consequences by J. Epelu-Opio
- Uganda's Age of Reforms: A Critical Overview edited by Justus Mugaju
- Uganda since Independence: A Story of Unfulfilled Hopes by Phares Mutibwa
- Understanding Obstacles to Peace: Actors, Interests, and Strategies in Africa's Great Lakes Region edited by Mwesigsa Baregu

I am interested in the evolution of the National Resistance Army (NRA) to the Ugandan People's Defense Force (UPDF) but it's hard to find a lot of details. Please let me know if there is a good book on the subject!
