University Press of Kentucky | 2004-08 | ISBN : 0813123399 | Pages: 351 | PDF | 8.47 MB
The History and Politics of Counterinsurgency, Anthony James Joes argues that comprehension of the origins and motivations behind guerilla warfare requires an examination of its long history. More important, in order to prevail against the tactics employed by these nonconventional warriors, military thinkers and policymakers must understand that guerilla warfare is not just a military tactic but also a political strategy. Joes, one of the nation’s leading scholars of guerilla warfare, argues that any effective response to guerilla warfare must primarily be political.
