Once considered nationalists, many insurgent groups are now labeled as terrorists and thought to endanger not just their own people, but the world. As the unprecedented trends in political violence among insurgents have taken shape, and as hundreds of thousands of civilians continue to be displaced, brutalized, and killed, Inside Insurgency provides startling insights that help to explain the nature of insurgent behavior.
Claire Metelits draws from over 100 interviews with insurgent soldiers, commanders, government officials, scholars, and civilians in Sudan, Kenya, Colombia, Turkey, and Iraq, offering a new understanding of insurgent group behavior and providing compelling and intimate portraits of the SPLA, FARC, and PKK. The engaging narratives that emerge from her on-the-ground fieldwork provide incredibly valuable and accurate first-hand documentation of the tactics of some of the world’s most notorious insurgent groups. Inside Insurgency offers the reader a timely and intimate understanding of these movements, and explains the changing behavior of insurgent groups toward the civilians they claim to represent.

Claire Metelits is assistant professor of political science at Washington State University.Review:
"Metelit's book is a great contribution. It offers a relevant, parsimonious and testable theory, while at the same time providing a good springboard into three cases where there is still a lot to be understood. "-Global Policy
“Metelits has written an engaging study that contributes a wealth of original data on three insurgencies as well as an innovative argument for why they behave differently toward civilian populations.”
-Deborah Avant,author of The Market for Force

Descripción New York University Press. Hardback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Inside Insurgency: Violence, Civilians, and Revolutionary Group Behavior, Claire Metelits, What motivates people to dress in a manner that marks them out as different to the conventional norm? Is it true that, with dress, anything goes in our mix-and-match postmodern culture? Have easily recognizable, authentic subcultures imploded in a glut of ironic reversals and stylistic fragmentation? Does this supposed 'post-subcultural' generation actively celebrate ephemerality, transience, and disposability, merely casting off and trying on one alternative identity after another in an ever-accelerating fashion frenzy? Drawing on extensive interviews with people who dress in what might be deemed a stylistically unconventional manner, David Muggleton seeks to establish whether contemporary subcultures display modern or postmodern sensibilities and forms. He argues persuasively that they do both - a stress on postmodern hyperindividualism, fluidity, and fragmentation runs alongside a modernist emphasis on authenticity and underlying essence. He concludes that a Romantic libertarianism has permeated working-class culture and that the distinction between 'individualistic' middle-class countercultures and 'collectivist' working-class subcultures has been over-emphasized.
