Description

In this latest addition to the War & Conflict Through the Ages series, Brian Sandberg offers a truly global examination of the intersections between war, culture, and society in the early modern period. He traces the innovative military technologies and practices that emerged around 1500, exploring the different forms of warfare including dynastic war, religious warfare, raiding warfare, and peasant revolt that shaped conflicts during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. He explains how significant social, economic, and political developments transformed warfare on land and at sea at a time of global imperialism and growing mercantilism, forcing states and military systems to respond to rapidly changing situations. Engaging and insightful, War and Conflict in the Early Modern World will appeal to scholars and students of world history, the early modern period, and those interested in the broader relationship between war and society.show more

Review quote

As much a world history as a military history, War and Conflict in the Early Modern World provides a deeply contextualized survey of military history. It accurately highlights the many different varieties of military force in play during this era and shows how intercultural interactions and connections transformed the nature of war. War and Conflict is particularly good in that it incorporates the many global spiritual crises of the era, as well as new research on the effects of climate in creating world wide pressures for conflict. Wayne E. Lee, University of North Carolina "By studying early modern war and conflict on a global scale, Brian Sandberg not only reveals his incredible erudition, but also provides valuable insights into the role war played in the shaping of states and societies, and the emergence of a new world system." Herve Drevillon, Universite Paris 1 Pantheon - Sorbonneshow more
