British counterinsurgency from Palestine to Northern Ireland

Newsinger, J (2002) British counterinsurgency from Palestine to Northern Ireland. Palgrave. ISBN 9780333793855

Abstract

British Counterinsurgency examines the insurgencies that have confronted the British State since the end of the Second World War, and at the methods used to fight them. It looks at the guerrilla campaigns in Palestine, Malaya, Kenya, Cyprus, South Yemen, Oman, and most recently in Northern Ireland, and considers the reasons for British success or failure in suppressing them. It provides a hard-nosed account of the realities of counterinsurgency as practised by the most experienced security establishment in the world today.
