Review of The Counter-Counterinsurgency Manual: Or, Notes on Demilitarizing American Society
This brief piece reviews a pamphlet entitled The Counter-Counterinsurgency Manual. Written by the founders of the Network of Concerned Anthropologists, it is a rejoinder to the US Army and Marine Corps’ 2007 Counterinsurgency Field Manual. Their critique focuses on the manual’s third chapter, “Intelligence in Counterinsurgency,” which seeks to mobilize anthropologists for war.
