In War in the Modern World, 1990-2014, Jeremy Black looks at the most modern of conflicts from the perspective that war is a central feature of the modern world. Arguing that understanding non-Western developments is crucial if the potential of Western war-making is to be assessed accurately, the book also asserts thatÂ knowing the history of conflict can only help future generations. Black argues for the need to emphasise the variety of military circumstances, as well as the extent to which the understanding of force and the definitions of victory and defeat are guided by cultural assumptions. War has a multi-faceted impact in the modern world, and this bookÂ shows its significance.
As theÂ latest volumeÂ in the WarfareÂ and History series, this title takes a global and historical perspective on modern warfare, enabling the reader to approach familiarÂ conflicts through a new analytical framework. This book is an invaluable resourceÂ for all students of the history of modern warfare.
