Small Wars & Insurgencies

United States post-invasion struggles with the Iraqi insurgency have
prompted increased focus on insurgent conflicts from practitioners and
academics alike. This renewed interest has produced a number of studies
focusing on a topic that has largely been neglected since the end of the
Vietnam War. In this well-researched account, Jeffrey Record, a
professor at the US Air Force Air War College, sheds additional light on
one of the most fundamental questions for great powers in the
international system today: how is it that (and under what
circumstances) the militarily weak have been able to prevail over the
strong in insurgent conflicts?
