Contributors are sought to write chapters for a substantial two-volume history of modern counterinsurgency, covering all the major and many of the lesser-known yet key examples of this widespread and enduring form of conflict. The project will cover counterinsurgencies from the first modern anti-guerrilla operations in Spain in the early 19th century to the ongoing operations in Afghanistan today, thus covering the span of modern counterinsurgencies from Europe and Asia to Africa and South America.
Each chapter will cover the political, military, social and economic measures employed in attempting to overcome the insurgency concerned, examining the work of politicians, the military, the police, and the vast array of civilians responsible for everything from counter-terrorism to infrastructure-building, demonstrating how success and failure dictated change from policy down to platoon-level before analyzing the results. The work will seek to draw out lessons from the history of counterinsurgency, identifying which strategies have succeeded and which have failed – and why.
