Algerian Lessons for “Counter-Insurgency.”. David PORTER.

Algerian Lessons for “Counter-Insurgency.”

n.p., [ca. 1967]. Three corner-stapled sheets, 6 pp. Originally published as an article in the May, 1967, issue of “Christianity and Revolution,” the author contends that the U.S.’s ill-conceived pacification program in Vietnam will fail in the way it did for the French in Algeria and that “it may be the case that Vietnam is only a testing-ground for “counter-insurgency” methodology.”

The author, a long-time political science professor, later edited Vision on Fire: Emma Goldman on the Spanish Revolution (2006) and Eyes to the South: French Anarchists and Algeria (2011). Pages browned, one corner chipped, a couple of tiny edge tears; VG overall. No record for this iteration in WorldCat. Item #06042
