Tackling Insurgency and Terrorism

Samay Ram (Author)
Synopsis This book deals with the current problems of insurgency and terrorism. It covers various nuances of these problems with emphasis on the challenges thrown up while conducting counter insurgency/counter terrorist operations with particular reference to Jammu & Kashmir. The book is based on the personal experience of the author while witnessing or conducting counter insurgency operations in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Punjab and J&K. It recommends the strategy to be adopted while tackling insurgency and terrorism. It includes the war memoirs of the author while he was engaged in the intense phase of operations with the LTTE in Sri Lanka. This diary will be of great interest as it gives insight into a field commander’s mind and reflects on planning at higher headquarters. The book also highlights the constraints under which troops operate in an insurgency environment and recommends measures to overcome this problem. While the book has its orientation and focus mainly on the military doctrine, it will be of equal value to the bureaucrate and the political leadership.
