Others claim that the war of independence and Civil War were not revolutions, but had tremendous revolutionary potential. We will read W.E.B. DuBois’ Black Reconstruction (Oxford University Press, 2007) in whole, and for more recent research, the middle part of Steven Hahn’s A Nation Under Our Feet: Black Political Struggles in the Rural South (Harvard University Press, 2003).

Laleh Khalili examines the practices and historical roots of two major liberal counterinsurgencies of our day - the Israeli occupation of Palestine and the U.S. War on Terror
