9780833049766: Counterinsurgency in Pakistan

Pakistan has undertaken a number of operations against militant groups since 2001. There have been some successes, but such groups as al Qa'ida continue to present a significant threat to Pakistan, the United States, and other countries. Pakistan needs to establish a population-centric counterinsurgency that better protects the local population and addresses grievances. It also needs to abandon militancy as a tool of foreign and domestic policy.

Review:

"Counterinsurgency in Pakistan" is by far the most comprehensive and detailed work I have read on counterinsurgency efforts in the tribal areas of Pakistan. It is both strategic and tactical, raises all the right issues, describes in great detail the operations about which little is known, and has a good mix of military strategy with the politics involved. It should be given the widest readership, including in Pakistan.

-Ahmed Rashid, author of "Taliban" and "Descent in Chaos: The United States and the Failure of Nation Building in Pakistan, Afghanistan, and Central Asia"



"Counterinsurgency in Pakistan" is an extremely useful book that addresses the U.S. government's most pressing policy issue today: the situation in Pakistan. It is especially helpful because such a composite and detailed assessment has not appeared elsewhere.

-John H. Gill, Professor at the Near East South Asia Center at National Defense University
