Summary

While all instances of insurgency have elements in common, the circumstances that precipitate them and the forms they take vary immensely. The editors of this book synthesize the literature on insurgency to provide an analytical framework that outlines categories of insurgent movements (secessionist, revolutionary, restorational, reactionary, conservative, and reformist), strategies (Maoist, Cuban, and urban), and factors that can have a major bearing on the outcome of insurgent conflicts. Case studies on Thailand, Oman, Angola, Guatemala, Uruguay, Iraq, the PLO, and Northern Ireland are then examined systematically in terms of the framework, facilitating the testing of extant propositions and comparative analyses of the different movements.
