"Modern Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgencies" explores how unconventional warfare tactics have opposed past and present governments all over the world, from eighteenth century guerrilla warfare through to the urban terrorism of today. Insurgency remains one of the most prevalent forms of conflict and presents a crucial challenge to the international community, governments and the military.
In addition to examining the tactics of guerrilla leaders such as Lawrence Mao, Guevara, and Marighela, the book also analyzes the counter-insurgency theories of Gallieni, Callwell, Thompson, and Kitson.
Encompassing both an analytic and historical framework, this timely one-volume study runs the gamut from The Revolutionary War and Napoleon's campaign in Spain to the conflicts in Northern Ireland and Colombia -- and is a must read for anyone interested in military history and international relations.
