London Yale 1998 0300072023 / 9780300072020 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Book 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall 
First edition. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. War and the World: Military Power and the Fate of Continents, 1450-2000. An attempt to write a global history of warfare in the modern era. Jeremy Black, here presents a wide-ranging account of the nature, purpose and experience of war over the last half millennium. Investigating both land and sea warfare, Black examines weaponry, tactics, strategy and resources as well as the political, social and cultural impact of conflict. 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. European mastery at sea did not inevitably translate into equivalent success on land, he argues, and indeed many non-European military systems were formidable in their own right. Black investigates the regional political military inpact of, for example, Babur and the Mughals in 16th-century India and the Manchu conquest of China in the following century. The book argues that, in the 18th century - the focal point of Europe's military revolution - the international military balance shifted decisively. Economic growth and maritime exploration turned navies into aggressively effective instruments of power and fuelled the obsession for territorial acquisition which dominated the great powers throughout the 19th century. Linking debates on early modern history with those of more recent centuries, War and the World should be reading for students of global history and constitutes a re-examination of the role of war in the progress of nations.

Foreword by Lord Zuckerman. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. When did men first try to unleash the power locked within the aton? How was nuclear fission missed during the mid-1930s and discovered on the eve of the Second World War? Did the Americans, during the war, unscrupulously use European discoveries? Or were they justified in thinking that the British were, even then, concentrating on post-war nuclear power? Was Truman or Churchill mainly responsible for trying to hoodwink Stalin at Potsdam? These are just a few of the questions answered in this compelling - if sometimes chilling - story of nuclear fission since the early years of the twentieth century.
