    Doing historical reserach on our (US) past perceptions of insurgency. Looking for a pamphlet published by the CIA in the ’80s “CIA Guide to The Analysis of Insurgency”. Its open source and had no luck on the CIA homepage search. Its been cited in numerous papers. Can anyone lead me to a digital copy? Any help would be appreciated.
