Recent U.S. Thinking about Terrorism and Counterterrorism: Babysteps towards a Dynamic View of Asymmetric Conflict

Abstract: 

It seems fair to say that no Army manual has attracted more public interest than FM 3-24. It was commissioned by and has a Foreword by Lt. General David Petraeus (U.S. Army) and Lt. General James F. Amos (U.S.M.C.). The University of Chicago Press edition has an additional Foreword by Lt. Colonel John A. Nagl, one of the writers of FM 3-24 and author of Learning to Eat Soup With a Knife: Counterinsurgency Lessons from Malaya and Vietnam, and an Introduction by Sarah Sewell, director of the Carr Center for Human Rights and a co-sponsor of the workshop that produced FM 3-24.
