What is the theory of counter-insurgency--its history and its aims? Can the U.S. Special Foorces in Vietnam or elsewhere solve the problems raised by people seeking national liberation and independence? The author, who himself was a participant in a people's guerrilla war, seeks to answer these and similar questions against the background of guerrilla experience in american history and particularly in relation to liberation wars in the present period.
