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.

ISBN: 0815710585. Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Silver lettering to spine. The future of US - European relations. In the aftermath of the Cold War era, a new world order is being created at an extraordinary pace. Europe is moving toward becoming a power of its own, Germany is growing into a new power center, NATO is looking for a new role, the Soviet Union has ceased to be a superpower threat, and the United States is going through its own superpower adjustments. In light of this new order, one of the most crucial questions for world stability will be the future relationship between the United States and the new Europe. Because of the drastic shakeup of the European kaleidoscope and the desirability to present a wide range of perspectives, this volume brings together some of the most experienced international personalities to interpret the repercussions of these changes and assess the impact they will have on future political, economic, trade, financial, industrial and security developments and, above all, on American-European relations. The list of contributors includes James Schlesinger, former US Secretary of Defense, Secretary of Energy and Assistant Directors of the Office of Management and Budget; David Owen, former British foreign secretary and head of the Social Democratic party; Michel Louis Leon Rocard, the former French Prime Minister; Jean Francois-Poncet, the leading columnist of Le Figaro and a former French Foreign Minister; Kurt Hans Biedenkopf, Minister President of Saxony, member of the Bundestag, and former secretary general of the Conservative party in West Germany; Dr Bernhard Gleske, recently retired Vice President of theGerman Bundesbank; Michael Stuermer, head of the Stiftung for Wissenschaft and Politik and an influential foreign policy adviser to Chancellor Kohl; Giovanni Agnelli, head of Fiat; and Fritz Leutwiler, chairman of Brown Boweri.

Unclipped dustwrapper with NO LOSS. No marks or inscriptions. Gilt lettering to spine. The discovery of Noah's Ark is one of the greatest archaeological finds of the 20th century, solving a mystery that has puzzled scientists for many centuries. The story of the clues which led to its detection - not on Mount Ararat, as had been thought, but on Mount Mahser Dagi (the Doomsday Mountain) some 17 miles to the south - is astonishing, and the material uncovered reveals much about life in the Middle East thousands of years BC. David Fasold headed one of the last teams to be allowed excavation rights in Turkey, and he dedicated years of his life and considerable sums of his own money to searching for the Ark. This book recounts the story of his quest and the eventual realization that he had succeeded when the dimensions of his find matched up exactly to those given in the Book of Genesis. Drilling samples subsequently revealed that the boat had not been made of wood, as was commonly supposed, but of reed and a kind of cement. Fasold's site has now been sealed off and officially declared the landing place of Noah's Ark by the Turkish Government. Nice and clean internally and externally.

Silver lettering to spine. Illustrated. No one who has read of Arnhem can have failed to have been inspired by gallantry of the 2nd Parachute Regiment, which held the north end of the key road bridge over the Rhine not for 24 hours for which it was equipped, but for 3 days and 4 nights. Commanded by the then Lt-Col Frost, they beat off repeated armoured and infantry assaults by far greater numbers, until forced out of the ruined and burning positions by losses, lack of ammunition, and the failure of the whole Arnhem operation. Their sacrifice stands as one of the most heroic defences of all time. General Frost's story is, in effect, that of the battalion. His tale starts with the Iraq Levies and goes on the major airborne operations in which he took part - Bruneval, Tunisia, Sicily, Italy, Arnhem - and continues with his experiences as a prisoner and the reconstruction of the battalion after the German surrender. Though written with modesty and humour, the book is shot through with the fire and determination of the fighting solider, and throws important new light on many controversies, not only those of Arnhem.
