Military Coup, Chile, 1973.
The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012 by Charles J. Dunlap Jr. (MBV: I read this when it was originally published in the Winter 1992-93 issue of Parameters. It is interesting why Parameters felt it necessary to reprint it now.)
The Insurgent’s Response to the Defense of Cities by Eric Jardine.
"The retrenchment of counterinsurgent forces in urban areas actually favors the conduct of insurgency. It is, in fact, a response to insurgent activity that is sought by strategically mindful guerrilla leaders. As T. E.

We wanted him to stay at Medina, and every other distant place, in the largest numbers.” The Turkish counterinsurgency was welcome in the major cities and transit lines “just so long as he gave us [the insurgency] the other nine hundred and ninety-nine thousandths of the Arab world.”
