Ian Beckett's Modern Insurgencies and is part of the "Warfare and History" series published by Routledge Press. I have read two other books from this series: Rhoads Murphey's Ottoman Warfare and John Thornton's Warfare in Atlantic Africa. Without expounding on the details of their insurgencies, he briefly mentions Abd el-Kader’s (1832-1847) guerrilla war against France, and Shamil’s (1834-1859) resistance to the Russians, which were both insurgencies that emerged independently of the Ottoman empire’s conventional army. In the case of Abd el-Kader, tribes were united along religious lines – a partisan approach that is no different from the modern insurgencies of Ansar al-Sharia, Al-Dawla al-Islamiyya, and al-Shabab to name a few.
Ian F. W. Beckett is Professor of Modern History at the University of Luton and a Fellow of the Royal Historical Society. His many publications include The Amateur Military Tradition (1991) and Encyclopedia of Guerilla Warfare(1999). The chapters are well organized and flow well through history from approximately the 1750's to roughly 2000.

Insurgency and terrorism, Ian Beckett informs us, have since 1945 become "the most prevalent forms of conflict," so that it is all the more surprising that both they and the methods used to counter them have attracted so little attention from historians. As a contribution to the remedying of this deficiency he has contributed a quite masterly survey introduction to the excellent Warfare and History series published by Routledge. This is compounded by the fact that he does not emphasise the importance of politics enough and the extent of their bearing on the origins, conduct and outcome of insurgencies and. The Irish War of Independence is a good example. Beckett argues that the reason for the success of the IRA campaign was "the lack of political direction on the British side. This treats politics like an ingredient when it can be better regarded as the recipe. This new series of single-authored books on war, warfare and society marks a major new publishing initiative in military history for undergraduate students. Covering the whole span of history, the series seeks to encourage works on the impact of war and the preparations for war on social, economic and political developments. The books will eschew the 'battles and generals' approach, and seek to place militarism in context. Learn mor. ubject Categories. Military & Naval History. World/International History.
