about

Modern Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgenciesexplores how unconventional warfare tactics have opposed past and present governments all over the world, from eighteenth-century guerrilla warfare 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,Modern Insurgencies and Counter-Insurgencies also analyses the counter-insurgency theories of Gallieni, Callwell, Thompson and Kitson. It explores such conflicts as:
* the American War of Independence
* Napoleon's campaign in Spain
* the wars of decolonisation
* the superpowers in Vietnam and Afghanistan
* conflicts in Northern Ireland, Sierra Leone and Colombia.
