Inhaltsangabe: Based on the premise that all civilizations originate in conflict, this work is a sweeping view of the place of warfare in human culture and an exposition of the human impulse toward violence. It probes the motivations and methods of war over the centuries -- from the strangely ritualistic combat of Stone Age peoples to today's warfare of mass destruction.

In the process, it shows how war has maintained its singular hold on the imagination, reaching into "the most secret places of the human heart, places where self dissolves rational purpose, where pride reigns, where emotion is paramount, where instinct is king."

John Keegan is, according to Tom Clancy, "the best military historian of our generation."

Inhaltsangabe: John Keegan, military historian, provides an analysis of world history and the role that man's impulse to war has played in it.

Buchbeschreibung Blackstone Audiobooks, United States, 2013. CD-Audio. Buchzustand: New. Unabridged. 150 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New. In this encyclopedically learned and immensely gripping book, one of our foremost military historians demolishes the famous dictum that war is the continuation of policy by other means. Beginning with the premise that all civilizations owe their origins to warmaking, Keegan probes the meanings, motivations, and methods underlying war in different societies over the course of more than two thousand years. Following the progress of human aggression in its full historical sweep--from the strangely ritualistic combat of Stone Age peoples to the warfare of mass destruction in the present age--his illuminating and lively narrative gives us all the world s great warrior cultures, including the Zulus, the samurai, and the horse peoples of the steppe, as well as the famed warmakers of the West. He shows why honor has always been accorded to the soldierly virtues, whatever the cultural context, and how war has maintained its singular hold on the imagination, reaching into the most secret places of the human heart, where self dissolves rational purpose, where pride reigns, where emotion is paramount, where instinct is king. Keegan s analysis of centuries of conflict unveils the deepest motives behind humanity s penchant for mass bloodshed. A History of Warfare is a masterpiece of military scholarship, irresistible in its style and terrifying in its implications. Buchnummer des Verkäufers AAS9781441787965
