Seems outdated, but interesting account of "wars of the third kind", and the rise of low-intensity warfare / guerilla war / civil war during C-War and immediately afterwards. Interesting explanations on why South America, though a zone with the characteristics of a 'zone of war' (underdevelopment, corruption, poverty, military rule, etc.) has been a zone of peace in the 20th Century.

One of those university texts that continues to sit on my shelf, finding surprising uses for my own students in history class. A bit dry at times, but very concise & thorough in its subject matter.
