Invisible Armies

Cover Image

Though often considered unconventional, guerrilla warfare has been the predominant form of warfare throughout human history. In his new book, Invisible Armies: An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present, Max Boot examines the origins of guerrilla warfare and describes what has changed — and what hasn’t —over the ages. Boot analyzes how various states have attempted to fight insurgents, and shows how important it is for the future of warfare to understand this potent threat.

The New America Foundation’s National Security Studies Program is pleased to host Boot for a discussion about his book and the big ideas we should take from it. Please join us for this timely and informative conversation.
