Introduction To Global Military History 1775 To The Present Day

Black, J.
ISBN/EAN 9780415353953
Druk 5
This lucid account of military developments around the modern world begins with the American War of Independence and the French revolutionary Wars and continues chronologically to the latest conflicts in the 2000s. It combines global coverage with thought-provoking analysis dealing not only with the military aspects of conflict but also with the social, cultural, political and economic aspects and consequences of such conflict. By placing the familiar or known alongside the largely unknown, the reader is forced to reassess the standard grand narrative of military history that rests on assumptions of Western cultural and technological superiority. It will be essential reading for students in universities worldwide whether studying modern military history, modern world history, history and international relations or war and society. Specially designed to be user-friendly, Introduction to Military History offers: * chapter introductions and conclusions to assist study and revision * voices of warsourced extracts from the field of war * case studies in each chapter to support the narrative and provoke discussion * vivid engravings, plans, paintings and photos to bring the conflicts alive * a 12-page color map section plus 21 other integrated maps * annotated references from the latest publications in the field
