Abstract : The matters treated in the general survey portions of this paper are structured in accordance with the four-fold division explained previously. The specific analyses, within these several divisions, examine the characteristic indicators, incident patterns and countermeasures taken and the special significance of particular societal groups within the insurgent picture. The demonstration in urban areas, not immediately associated with an attempted power seizure, is assigned the greatest attention for three reasons: (1) The demonstration is one of the most valuable and most utilized weapons in the total phenomenon of insurgency. It appears in all insurgent phases; (2) All of the essential principles and techniques appearing in the other forms of urban insurgency, exist already during 'Phase One Insurgency' and a detailed treatment of these procedures in conjunction with the urban demonstration lessens the need for their isolated treatment as they apply to the second, third and fourth models of urban operations; (3) This is the form of urban activities which can be expected to occur in Thailand most frequently in the immediate future.
