9780091745271: A History of Warfare

This book argues that far from being "a continuation of politics by other means", war is the heart of human history and the main engine of change - political, economic, social and artistic - by which all societies have developed. In a narrative that stretches from Stone Age man to the Gulf War and covers human societies all over the globe.
