NIAC style warfare -armed conflict that is not between two governments with uniformed soldiers – has been around since ancient times. In his new book, Invisible Armies: An Epic History of Guerrilla Warfare from Ancient Times to the Present,  Max Boot attempted to write a “one-stop destination…for the general  reading public interested [in the subject of guerrilla warfare]*.” He begins the book by discussing the origins of guerrilla warfare and ends with current conflicts.* 

For more information on the book and an overview of the text visit the Council on Foreign Relation’s website.

Also on the CFR’s website is an interesting interactive timeline/ tracker that shows conflicts from 1775-2012. Here the reader can sort by Region, Country or Outcome to explore conflict through the centuries.
