Life During Wartime: Resisting Counterinsurgency

£17.50

Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Counterinsurgency has existed as the state's implicit strategy for a generation, and increasingly this strategy is becoming explicit. In this chilling collection of sociological and political essays, fifteen writers examine the application of domestic counterinsurgency tactics within the United States, and seek to equip the left with a more nuanced understanding of state repression - and how to fight back. Critique and tactics that are equally valid here in the UK - it's a rare day when the use and misuse of surveillance isn't in the headlines.
