Scope and Content

Theoretical and intellectual background materials on guerrilla operations during the war in three Subsections on Psyops, Revolutionary Guerrilla War, and Counter-Insurgency. This section examines psychological operations, the concept of revolutionary guerrilla war and counter-insurgency tactics during the Vietnam Conflict. Material examines the nature and theory behind insurgency warfare and some of the international means to combat it. Issues such as communication and propaganda, the Viet Minh and the Leninist's view of "wars of national liberation" are examined. The counter-insurgency materials cover the regional actions in Asia, the Malayan Emergency, the Huk rebellion in the Philippines and the "people's war" of Mao Tse-tung and Lin Piao.

Biographical Note

Professor Pike was born in 1925. He served as a journalist in the Army during World War II (in the Pacific Theater of Operations) and during the Korean Conflict. He earned degrees from the University of California-Berkeley and American University. He served as an FSO in Taiwan, Korea, Lebanon, and Vietnam. In 1982 he began teaching at UC-Berkeley and in 1997 moved Texas Tech University. Professor Pike housed and supported the Collection until 1982 when he moved it to Berkeley.

After being approached by Professor Pike, Dr. James Reckner, Director of the Vietnam Center at Tech, and Dr. David Murrah, Assistant Director of Libraries for the Special Collections, worked together to bring the Collection to the Archive in 1994
