The Counterinsurgent's Constitution: Law in the Age of Small Wars (Hardcover)
Ganesh Sitaraman is an Assistant Professor of Law at Vanderbilt Law School. He has been a Visiting Fellow at the Center for a New American Security, and in the summer of 2009, he was a research fellow at the Counterinsurgency Training Center-Afghanistan, at Camp Julien, Kabul, Afghanistan. Sitaraman has also written about counterinsurgency in Afghanistan in The New York Times Global Edition and in The New Republic.
The Counterinsurgent's Constitution tackles this wide range of legal issues from the vantage point of counterinsurgency strategy. Ganesh Sitaraman explains why law matters in counterinsurgency: how it operates on the ground and how law and counterinsurgency strategy can be better integrated. Counterinsurgency, Sitaraman notes, focuses on winning over the population, providing essential services, building political and legal institutions, and fostering economic development. So, unlike in conventional war, where law places humanitarian restraints on combat, law and counterinsurgency are well aligned and reinforce one another. Indeed, following the law and building the rule of law is not just the right thing to do, it is strategically beneficial. Moreover, reconciliation with enemies can both help to end the conflict and preserve the possibility of justice for war crimes. Following the rule of law is an important element of success.
The first book on law and counterinsurgency strategy, The Counterinsurgent's Constitution seamlessly integrates law and military strategy to illuminate some of the most pressing issues in warfare and the transition from war to peace. Its lessons also apply to conflicts in Libya and other hot-spots in the Middle East.
