Counterinsurgency and the Global War on Terror: Military Culture and Irregular War (Stanford Security Studies) - Robert Cassidy 170 pages based on a worldview that others are born to live and die for us. The grossly inadequate and false information presented on subjects that the author knows nothing about undermines the credibility of the rest of the information.
This book is useful for one thing if you're not ready to agree with the author regarding his basic premise on the role of others: to remind yourself that we do not live in a post-colonial world.
