Since 2006, counterinsurgency has been the guiding doctrine of the U.S. military establishment. The first book of its kind, Hearts and Minds meets counterinsurgency proponents on their own playing field, retelling the history of counterinsurgency from the perspective of the populations whose hearts and minds have been fought over since the end of the World War II. The book details not only the real socio-economic sources of discontent behind insurgencies, but also the negative impact of counterinsurgency programs on everyday people. A key resource for the debates on military policy.
