Productbeschrijving

Insurgency and Counterinsurgency in the Nineteenth Century examines insurgency and counter-insurgency across the globe in the nineteenth century. The volume includes chapters from distinguished and rising historians from Europe, North and South America, covering irregular wars in Spain, Ireland, France, Latin America, China, USA, Africa, Central Asia and Burma. They explore links between insurgencies and nationalism, including learning curves and emulation in counter-insurgency. With a special emphasis on non-Western warfare, it includes case-studies such as the Katanga and White Lotus rebellions largely unknown to Western readers. The military history of the nineteenth century thus reveals much more than the symmetrical warfare of Napoleon, Grant and Moltke. This volume shows the commonalities of responses more than their differences, and refracts these through themes which crop up repeatedly in different times places. These themes include common problems and common solutions; the challenge of commanding local intelligence networks; public opinion; millenarianism, magic and religion; technology; 'hearts and minds'; the legal framework of state violence; racial stereotypes; and patterns of forgetting and remembering guerrilla conflicts. The first recent study to examine Western and non-Western warfare in equal measure, stressing the prevalence of commonalities between guerrilla warfare and counterinsurgency across the globe, Insurgency and Counterinsurgency in the Nineteenth Century will be of great interest to scholars of military and strategic studies, as well as modern military history. It was originally published as a special issue of Small Wars & Insurgencies.
