The study exemplifies the use of knowledge derived from scholarly studies in the social sciences to lay the foundation for defenses against modern unconventional warfare. Unconventional warfare is defined as a system of conflict the strategy of which is to secure control of the state by first gaining control of its civilian population. The study is a follow-up to a pioneer attempt in the use of social science techniques, which treated the situation in South Vietnam. To determine how useful the procedures developed there would be when applied to a different situation, a brief investigation was conducted from June to August 1963 of unconventional warfare in Venezuela using the same procedural apparatus as in the Vietnam work. The results indicate that the system works well and that it works with speed, a systematic picture of the social structure of the modern nation of Venezuela having been produced in the remarkably short time of 3 months, using only the open literature. The report of findings follows the plan used for the Vietnam study. Four sections sketch the dynamics of the economic, political, military, and attitude-forming aspects of Venezuelan society; each section is followed by a discussion of the roles and groups most important to the aspect. Finally, a projection of what is likely to happen in the country in relation to unconventional war up to the end of 1966 is presented. A biographical file on key personalities, a glossary of abbreviations, and a bibliography are included. (Author).

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Unconventional warfare (abbreviated UW) is the opposite of conventional warfare. Where conventional warfare is used to reduce an opponent's military capability, unconventional warfare is an attempt to achieve military victory through acquiescence, capitulation, or clandestine support for one side of an existing conflict. On the surface, UW contrasts with conventional warfare in that: forces or objectives are covert or not well-defined, tactics and weapons intensify environments of subversion or intimidation, and the general or long-term goals are coercive or subversive to a political body.
This study proposes how cyberspace operations can best support online resistance movements to influence adversary national will or affect political behavior to achieve U.S. strategic objectives.

This study proposes how cyberspace operations can best support online resistance movements to influence adversary national will or affect political behavior to achieve U.S. strategic objectives. Political and social hacker activists (hacktivists) are disrupting governments, organizations, companies, and influencing popular and social movements to achieve their causes. Within the cyber domain, technically-capable, socially-aware guerilla-type hacktivists struggle against governments in ways similar to unconventional warfare (UW) campaigns in physical domains. There is currently a gap between UW and cyberspace operations on how best to properly engage, support, and organize an insurgency in cyberspace. Current conditions on the Internet present an opportunity to implement UW within a new domain through online resistance groups and organizations, specifically with the use of hacktivists.

Unconventional warfare by United States Joint Chiefs of Staff and Army definition con sists of the three interrelated fields of guerrilla warfare, evasion-and-escape, and subversion. Part I of this bibliography (the present volume) encompasses these three fields; Part II (to be published later) will cover unclassified sources in the field variously labeled counterguerrilla warfare, counterinsurgency warfare, or operations against irregular forces. Inasmuch as the 400-odd entries in this volume were selected from over 1,800 entries in the SORO information storage system, the bibliography is not comprehensive. Rather, it presents a cross section of available literature on the various unconventional warfare subjects included. Because entries were selected to provide this cross sectional view, users of the volume can feel confident, after reading all of the sources referenced under any subject, that they have been exposed to a fairly complete picture of the understanding of the subject as it exists in the unclassified literature. It is anticipated that later SORO bibliographies of classified sources will complete the picture for qualified users with respect to important aspects of unconventional warfare activities which, primarily because they are clandestine in nature, tend to be written about only in classified documents.

Unconventional Warfare 2.0 describes how demographic trends, rapid technological changes, and an adaptive enemy will drive new and innovative UW approaches."--Description from Amazon.com.
Author: Christopher Rawley
Rogue regimes have extracted an inordinate amount of energy, blood, and treasure from the world's militaries in the past century. Overthrowing these regimes is a major policy decision - fraught with peril and unknown downstream implications. The United States painfully re-learned these lessons following the invasion in Iraq and after deposing the Taliban in Afghanistan. Unconventional warfare (UW) is the flip side of counter-insurgency, in which external military elements enable surrogate guerrilla forces against an incumbent government. An updated concept for UW campaigns may offer a more palatable option for regime change in certain situations. Global instantaneous communications, social media, and the application of precision munitions from conventional forces have radically altered this age old method of warfare. Recent UW campaigns in Libya and Syria demonstrated the pros and cons of jump-starting a revolution and how non-state actors have made these already chaotic conflicts even more so. Unconventional Warfare 2.0 describes how demographic trends, rapid technological changes, and an adaptive enemy will drive new and innovative UW approaches.

India is the world's tenth largest economy and possesses the world's fourth largest military. The subcontinent houses about one-fifth of the world's population and its inhabitants are divided into various tribes, clans and ethnic groups following four great religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam. Framing the debate using case studies from across the region as well as China, Afghanistan and Burma and using a wealth of primary and secondary sources this incisive volume takes a closer look at the organization and doctrines of the 'shadow armies' and the government forces which fight the former. Arranged in a thematic manner, each chapter critically asks; Why stateless marginal groups rebel? How do states attempt to suppress them? What are the consequences in the aftermath of the conflict especially in relation to conflict resolution and peace building? Unconventional Warfare in South Asia is a welcomed addition to the growing field of interest on civil wars and insurgencies in South Asia. An indispensable read which will allow us to better understand whether South Asia is witnessing a 'New War' and whether the twenty-first century belongs to the insurgents.
