Weapons, Warfare and Military Technology, Third Edition
Last published in 2010, Weapons, Warfare & Military Technology is designed to meet the needs of students seeking information about weaponry, tactics, technology, and models of warfare from ancient times to the present, worldwide. Written with the needs of students and general readers in mind, the articles contained in this set present clear discussions of the topics, explaining any terms or references that may be unclear. The focus on the technical and strategic development of weapons and tactics, more than on a narrative chronological history of events, allows students of history, political science, science and technology alike to gain a broad understanding of the technological and strategic advances made over time and geography. The third volume adds the essential dimension of placing these topics in broad social, cultural, and political contexts.
