The author who is now a senior researcher with Amnesty International spent several years unravelling the development of counter-insurgency forces and the role of the U.S. in creating them. This book details how the U.S. notion of counter-insurgency, when applied under highly authoritarian regimes, ultimately converts almost the entire civilian population into the enemy.
