Abstract:

Insurgency is a form of warfare as old as warfare itself, and it has gone by many names in the past: guerrilla warfare, partisan warfare, revolutionary warfare, insurrectionary warfare, irregular warfare, unconventional warfare, peoples' war and terrorism. All have been, and are, used to describe the same broad phenomenon, though they do not all have the exact same meaning and have not necessarily been used simultaneously. Modern insurgency, derived from the writings and practice of Mao (among others), has a well defined theoretical literature. So, too, does counterinsurgency. There is a sizable historical literature that provides numerous case studies in the field. This reading list makes no attempt to be exhaustive or definitive: such a list would run to many thousands of entries and quickly prove self-defeating. This list is divided into two parts: a historical section, and a contemporary one.
