Summary
Assessing the history of warfare since the 15th century, Black (history, U. of Exeter) argues that most military histories suffer from a sense of inevitableness that fails to take into account the many factors that could lead to different outcomes. He also questions other assumptions such as the supremacy of technology as the decisive factor in the outcome of wars and ideas that the end of the Cold War has led to declining possibilities for war. He argues that the emergence of more and more independent states will not lead to a decline in insurgency movements and analyzes the possibilities for war among large states. Annotation c.
