New Haven, CT, U.S.A.: Yale University Press, 1998. First edition. Cloth binding, 334 pp. Investigating both land and sea warfare, Jeremy Black examines modern weaponry, tactics, strategy, and resources, as well as the political, social and cultural impact of conflict in this illustrated global history of warfare in the modern era. He takes issue with established interpretations, not least those that emphasize technology, and directly challenges the view that European military and naval forces were dominant throughout the period. Black investigates the impact of, for example, Ottoman expansion, Babur and the Mughals in 16th-century India, and the Manchu conquest of China in the following century. New in new dustjacket.. First Edition. Cloth. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
