PSI Classics of the Counterinsurgency Era

Author: Napolean D. Valeriano
Author: Charles T. R. Bohannan

This volume in the Praeger Security International (PSI) series Classics of the Counterinsurgency Era by
two officers-one from the Philippines and the other from America-who fought as guerrillas against the
Japanese occupation and went on to defeat the Huk rebellion after World War II. Unlike many other
accounts of counterinsurgency operations that focus on theoretical principles and their tactical
applications, the authors examine the means to assess the strengths and weaknesses of insurgencies.
An enduring contribution of this book is its emphasis on the importance of intelligence in combating
insurgent movements. With a new foreword prepared by Kalev Sepp.
