Recensioner i media

"With Waging Insurgent Warfare, Seth Jones has focused his prodigious analytical talents to write one of the clearest and most authoritative analyses of insurgency and counterinsurgency available. Comprehensive and compelling, this book is a timely and invaluable guide to understanding the modern trajectory of this particularly challenging form of conflict." -- Professor Bruce Hoffman, Georgetown University "There are few scholars who combine Seth Jones' learning and on-the-ground experience. He has distilled both into this concise study of insurgency, and it is first rate: the best overview of this form of warfare in print, and likely to remain so for years to come." -- Eliot A. Cohen, Johns Hopkins SAIS
