Insurgency, Terrorism & Crime: Shadows From the Past and Portents for the Future Author:Max G. Manwaring, Forword and afterwords by Edwin G. Corr
In this book, national security expert Max G. Manwaring examines the ascendance of nonstate actors in a geopolitical world. He shows how such actors have emerged parallel to the state-centric international system and have proliferated in nations undergoing crisis or collapse. Manwaring invites policy makers to look past familiar insurgencies such as those in Vietnam and Iraq and consider global security problems from multiple perspectives. He concludes that the use of calculated political and psychological power may be the most effective response in many situations." Insurgency, Terrorism, and Crime translates the cogent lessons of recent events into workable strategies for tomorrow's leaders. Provocatively concluding that a proper combination of coordinated political, psychological, and military responses can defeat a new generation of enemies, this book is required reading for students of national security policy and foreign-policy analysis.
