Originally published in 2002, Weapons and Warfare, Revised is designed to meet the needs of students seeking information about weaponry, tactics, and models of warfare from ancient times to the present, worldwide. Approximately 140 topics arranged chronologically and thematically, with volume 1, Ancient and Medieval, covering weapons and strategies from ancient times to 1500; volume 2, The Modern Era, covering weapons and strategies from approximately 1500 to the present; and volume 3, Warfare: Culture and Concepts providing valuable overviews of the way warfare, weapons, and military history have been expressed socially, politically, and in the arts. Each essay ranges from 1,500 words to 7,000 words. The first two volumes open with overviews of major weapons groups, followed by chronologically arranged sections covering major historical periods and regions of the world and their contributions to military weapons, technologies, and strategies. Volume 3 touches on all sociocultural and political aspects of weapons and warefare: literature, film, society, science, ethics, and basic "behind the battlefield" theories, strategies, and policies.
