A steady rise in urban guerrilla warfare is expected over the intermediate term as more and more people converge in the highly populated cities of many less-developed countries dealing with an insurgency problem. Unlike the guerrillas during the time of Clausewitz and Mao Tse-tung, modern-day urban guerrillas feel no need to have a secure geographical base or a cross-boundary sanctuary, foster a symbiotic relationship with the general population in the city, or avoid direct confrontations with counterinsurgents. This book examines the urban guerrilla conflicts in Warsaw, Budapest, Algiers, Montevideo, Sao Paolo, Saigon, Northern Ireland, and Grozny, focusing on the circumstances of their origin, the nature and number of participants and sympathizers, their level of intensity, their duration, the consequences of their suppression, and the meaning they may hold today.
