Unconventional Conflicts in a New Security Era: Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam


The United States must devise entirely new military and political strategies because threats to the nation's security have shifted so markedly. Sarkesian provides the first comparative analysis of unconventional conflicts using Malaya and Vietnam as lessons for developing effective policies and operations to counter revolution, "drug wars," and new types of Third World conflict today. This is a provocative text with excellent bibliography that combines insights from primary and secondary sources, participant-observer experiences, and scholarly and professional thinking in order to formulate practical recommendations for future policy.
