If you have an intrest in what is going on in Iraq and Afghanistan, and want an insight into the guerillas and the insurgency then get this book. Mao who wrote this while he was fighting the Japanesse and Chaing-Kishak, then this primary or bible of guerilla fighting is for you. Mao's insights and basic rules are easily applicable to any start up revolt. The book is easy to read nothing is complex and is simple in it's rules of conduct on how to be successful for an insurgent. If you are in the military regardless of preparing for a deployment to Iraq or Afghanistan this is worthly for professional development. If you are a fan of history it's insight into the simple philosophy of the man who took over China and how he did it. After reading it, it made me more aware and easier to pick out insurgencies that are in the news. What motivates them and how they are trying to be successful. I highly recommend this book for the serious historian and the military professional.

Mao's idea's on guerrilla warfare are outdated and culturally specific. Mao's treatise, though important as one of the seminal works of guerrilla theory, is a mire of ideological rhetoric and thinly veiled posturings, going so far as to discuss the potentiality of a 'Japanese' communisty revolution. Nevertheless, it is an important work, and defines key frameworks.

I would look to the Sub-Tzu books; but this is fairly good.
