America and guerrilla warfare by Anthony James Joes( Book )

10 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthony James Joes, argues that the U.S. experience in Vietnam was atypical of America's overall experience with guerrilla warfare. He examines several twentieth-century conflicts that should have better prepared the country for Vietnam: the Philippines in 1898, Nicaragua in the 1920s, Greece in the late 1940s, and the Philippines again during the Huk War of 1945-52. In a controversial interpretation, he suggests that valuable lessons were forgotten or ignored in Southeast Asia. Later, during the long Salvadoran conflict of the 1980s, American leaders seemed to recall what they had learned. Joes presents a total of nine case studies, from the role of Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, in driving Cornwallis to Yorktown and eventual surrender to the U.S. support of Afghan rebels that hastened the collapse of the Soviet Empire. He analyzes the origins of each conflict, traces American involvement, and seeks patterns and deviations. Studying numerous campaigns, including ones staged by Confederate units during the Civil War, Joes suggests the combination of elements that can lead a nation to success in guerrilla warfare or doom it to failure

Victorious insurgencies : four rebellions that shaped our world by Anthony James Joes( Book )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insurgencies, especially in the form of guerrilla warfare, continue to erupt across many parts of the globe. Most of these rebellions fail, but Four Rebellions that Shaped Our World analyzes four twentieth-century conflicts in which the success of the insurgents permanently altered the global political arena: the Maoists in China against Chiang Kai-shek and the Japanese in the 1930s and 1940s; the Viet Minh in French Indochina from 1945 to 1954; Castro's followers against Batista in Cuba from 1956 to 1959; and the mujahideen in Soviet Afghanistan from 1980 to 1989
Resisting rebellion : the history and politics of counterinsurgency by Anthony James Joes( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Resisting Rebellion, Anthony James Joes explores insurgencies ranging across five continents and spanning more than two centuries. Analyzing examples from North and South America, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, he identifies recurrent patterns and offers useful lessons for future policymakers. Insurgencies arise from many sources of discontent, including foreign occupation, fraudulent elections, and religious persecution, but they also stem from ethnic hostilities, the aspirations of would-be elites, and traditions of political violence. Because insurgency is as much a political phenomenon as a military one, effective counterinsurgency requires a thorough understanding of the insurgents' motives and sources of support. Clear political aims must guide military action if a counterinsurgency is to be successful and prepare a lasting reconciliation within a deeply fragmented society. The most successful counterinsurgency campaign undertaken by the United States was the one against Philippine insurgents following the Spanish-American War. But even more instructive than successful counterinsurgencies are the persistent patterns of errors revealed by Joes's comparative study. Instances include the indiscriminate destructiveness displayed by the Japanese in China and the Soviets in Afghanistan, and the torture of suspected Muslim terrorists by members of the French Army in Algeria. - Publisher
Urban guerrilla warfare by Anthony James Joes( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Urban Guerrilla Warfare traces the diverse origins of urban conflicts and identifies similarities and differences in the methods of counterinsurgent forces. In this wide-ranging and detailed comparative analysis, Anthony James Joes examines eight key examples of urban guerrilla conflict spanning half a century and four continents." "Joes demonstrates that urban insurgents violate certain fundamental principles of guerrilla warfare as set forth by renowned military strategists such as Carl von Clausewitz and Mao Tse-tung. Urban guerrillas operate in finite areas, leaving themselves vulnerable to encirclement and ultimate defeat. Joes argues persuasively against committing U.S. troops in urban counterinsurgencies but also offers cogent recommendations for the successful conduct of such operations where they must be undertaken."--Jacket
