Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban Guerrilla - David Kilcullen
Title: Out of the Mountains: The Coming Age of the Urban
Author: David Kilcullen
Publisher: Hurst Publishing
This is an outstanding book relating to the future of
non-traditional (asymmetric) warfare. Kilcullen draws upon extensive firsthand
experience as well as copious amounts of primary source discussion and material
to map out his view on the changing nature of war. Focusing upon four main
themes: population growth, urbanization, littoralization and connectedness, he
concisely and clearly identifies the impact of demographic and technological
change on how the future asymmetric threat will manifest itself. A must read
for any who have a role in urban and military planning and development.
