View all copies of this ISBN edition:

One of the most important manuals on revolutionary warfare ever published is now back in print. Carlos Marighella was instrumental in developing and organizing a leftist insurgency movement in Brazil until he was killed in 1969. His Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla examines the conditions, characteristics, necessities and methods of urban guerrilla warfare, including how insurgents should live and subsist while waging secret war; necessary technical and logistical preparations for guerrilla war; the importance of surprise, mobility and knowledge of the terrain; raids, penetrations, ambushes, occupations of buildings, sabotage and other street tactics; strikes and work interruptions; armed propaganda; guerrilla security; popular support; the "seven sins" of the urban guerrilla; and much more.

This short but info-packed booklet on the development of guerrilla warfare in the 20th century is in the same league as the works of Che Guevera and Mao Tse-tung. It is a fascinating historical document with interesting parallels to today's situation in Iraq.
