Review of Insurgency and Counterinsurgency

Matthew O’Gara of Rocky Mountain College reviews Jeremy’s Insurgency and Counterinsurgency for the Journal of Military History v.8, no.4 – extract below:

“No stone goes unturned in this dense yet highly readable book (its subtitle, A
Global History, is no exaggeration or misnomer). Although organized chronologically,
it is not merely a chronology; and although explicitly comparative, it is not
properly a comparative study. Black seeks to “probe the linkage between beliefs,
events, people, and time progression,” thus making his work akin to an encyclopedic,
narrative compendium of exhaustive research that culminates in a vast wealth
of knowledge on the provenance of insurgencies throughout world history.”
