Wars of the Third Kind: Conflict in Underdeveloped Countries (Paperback)

£30.00
Pre-order. Despatched on publication 19/07/2019

Synopsis

Most armed conflicts since World War II have been neither conventional nor nuclear, but wars of a third kind, fought in developing nations and involving guerrilla warfare. Edward E. Rice examines historical combat of this sort, including the American Revolution, the Chinese civil war, the Huk rebellion in the Philippines, and conflicts in Algeria, Vietnam, and Latin America. Rice explores the origin, organization, and motivation of these wars and the dangers they pose to the powers that get involved in them.

This title was originally published in 1988.
