Description
 
Jeremy Black (au). This iconoclastic study of war since the 15th century reassesses warfare as a whole, showing that many of the themes identified by military historians have been flawed or only partial in their truth. Black argues that the importance of technology, the preeminence of the West & clear-cut predictions about the future of war in the nuclear age are wide of the mark. He proposes a new history of war in the world that owes more to chaos theory than to any neat assumptions about the invulnerability of superpowers. He uses a rich array of concepts & counterfactuals to illustrate the limitations of the old military history & to urge careful consideration of a much broader range of issues from which to approach the question of what war will be like in the future.
