Two more Kilcullen books forthcoming

Mike Innes at CTLab tells us that Dave Kilcullen will have a new book coming out with Hurst (which published The Accidental Guerilla in the UK) in each of the next two years:
Former anthropologist, Australian army officer and adviser to Gen. Petraeus, David Kilcullen's COUNTERINSURGENCY, based on the author's 'Twenty-Eight Articles' of Counterinsurgency Warfare, and THE NINTH WINTER, the author's new theory of competitive control, a mix of counterinsurgency, peacekeeping, counterterrorism, counternarcotics and stablization operations, based on experience in Afghanistan since 9/11 will be published respectively in Spring 2010 and Spring 2011, by Hurst Publishers London, Oxford University Press, New York, Scribe Publishers, Melbourne and Foundation Books, New Delhi.

  1. In typical Kilcullen fashion, he shall take credit for the nouns of competitive control, counterinsurgency, peacekeeping, counterterrorism, counternarcotics and stabilization as well as the concepts of non-competetitiveness, insurgency, war, terrorism, narcotics and destabilization.

  2. Indeed, he's a genius in his own mind.
