Rebel groups vary considerably, yet systematically, both vis-a-vis each other and over time. As a simple observation this may sound trivial until one realizes that it tends to be overlooked in both academic research and policy analysis.
Networks of Rebellion is a major work. Paul Staniland's use of the South Asian cases is especially significant.
One cannot understand the effectiveness of insurgent organizations without analyzing the social ties in which they are embedded. The book draws primarily on new research materials from Kashmir, Afghanistan, and Sri Lanka. The author also builds an account that is thought-provoking, closely reasoned, and truly enlightening.
