In light of Pershing's military success, this study calls for a reevaluation of the more invasive counterinsurgency methods used by US officers against Muslim militants today, and it addresses the important role the Philippine-American War played in developing modern US military strategy.
About the Author
"This fraught and fascinating biography of Pershing in the Philippines gives a glimpse of the voices of Filipino Muslims as they engaged the governing American military officers. It also establishes Pershing's tactics as the forerunner of today's counterinsurgency strategy associated with General David Petraeus."—Patricio N. Abinales, coauthor of State and Society in the Philippines
