S I read
this book a 
book A writer with the New Yorker I d expect fine writing deep research wit and indeed a little arrogance Sadly all I found was the last and in much greater antity than I ever expected Jon Lee Anderson needs to take a refresher course in journalism and he should consider a few cultural anthropology courses to boot chilling lucid true Informative and educating though sometimes it drags on with ite a bit of meaningless detail I ve come to expect this from the kind of journalism meant to be entertaining enough like regular television that it might likely keep the Masses Reading And WatchingThe First Few Chapters reading and watchingThe first few chapters of the most important educating se to me The rest gets bogged down by too much detail both graphic and personal paces like the speed of guerrilla conflict and resolves itself to focus less on functions and And the Winner - Weds! uses practical information on the goings on and onotes and physical detailsBeyond Ch 3 it is definitely not as necessary to read for those interested in learning about guerrilla These first few are hopeful and the core of a movement And the rest when readers skim the small stuff is about the many challenges to that original ideal and how individuals groups and movements as a whole adapt to the changing environment Read the whole thing No apes Good book Focus on three different Guerrilla movements the Polisaro in Morocco indigenous tribesmen in Burma and rebels in central America More about their lives aspirations and the systems they have built and maintain to reject their oppressors This book gives the accounts of many guerrilla forces spanning the globe very interesting. Erful firsthand storytelling with balanced penetrating analysis of each situation A work of phenomenal range analytical acuity and human empathy Guerrillas amply demonstrates why Jon Lee Anderson is one of our most important chroniclers of societies in crisi.
