Call for Contributors: History of Counterinsurgency
Contributors are sought for the remaining two unassigned chapters (the Mau Mau Revolt; Counterinsurgency in Iraq, 2003-11) to form part of a two-volume history of counterinsurgency to be published in 2014 by Praeger International, covering most of the major and many of the lesser-known yet key examples of this widespread and enduring form of conflict. The work will cover insurgencies from the first modern anti-guerrilla operations in South Africa at the beginning of the 20th century to the on-going 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. The work will seek to draw out lessons from the history of counterinsurgency, identifying which strategies succeeded and which failed -- and why.
