This edition incorporates new material, including a substantial 'Afterword' which summarizes the debate which developed after the book's first publication. Geoffrey Parker's argument is in two parts. First the military practice of the West 'at home' in Europe is analysed, with special reference to the role of firearms in the transformation of both offensive and defensive warfare; to the rapid growth in army size; and to the creation of ocean-going warships which fought with long-range guns instead of ramming and boarding. He then argues that these major changes amounted to a 'military revolution' which gave Westerners a decided advantage over the people of other continents: over the Amerindians in the sixteenth century, over most Indonesians in the seventeenth, and over many Indians and Africans in the eighteenth. The book concludes with a brief survey of how the industrial revolution caused a second series of military changes which allowed the West to dominate almost the entire world by 1914+-+9304296705136834ocn004004054book19780.37Parker, GeoffreyPhilip IIBiography+-+4427417635110640ocn003531610book19770.50Parker, GeoffreyThe Dutch revoltHistory+-+0762865965324109637ocn000389789book19720.59Parker, GeoffreyThe Army of Flanders and the Spanish road, 1567-1659; the logistics of Spanish victory and defeat in the Low Countries' WarsHistoryMilitary historyThis book marks the birth of the "new military history", which emphasized military organization-- mobilization, pay, supply, morale and, above all, logistics-- rather than military "events" such as sieges and battles. The author has been able to show how Europe's largest army was assembled and commanded, as well as how it behaved in action and under stress. It demonstrates how easily a great power can become involved in a ruinous war which it cannot manage to win but cannot bear to abandon. It shows a picture of war and military life in the 16th and 17th centuries+-+3719356705324105715ocn038992878book19980.37Parker, GeoffreyThe grand strategy of Philip IIStudie over de regeerperiode (1556-1598) van de Spaanse koning (1527-1598)+-+0590255585102133ocn004444549book19780.63Parker, GeoffreyThe general crisis of the seventeenth centuryHistoryContaining fresh research and new perspectives, this volume of important essays brings up to date the debate about the theory of a 'General Crisis' in the seventeenth century, and proves essential reading for a clear understanding of the period+-+K7337606959239ocn785865028book20120.30Parker, GeoffreyGlobal crisis : war, climate change and catastrophe in the seventeenth centuryHistory"Revolutions, droughts, famines, invasions, wars, regicides - the calamities of the mid-seventeenth century were not only unprecedented, they were agonizingly widespread. A global crisis extended from England to Japan, and from the Russian Empire to sub-Saharan Africa. North and South America, too, suffered turbulence. The distinguished historian Geoffrey Parker examines first-hand accounts of men and women throughout the world describing what they saw and suffered during a sequence of political, economic and social crises that stretched from 1618 to the 1680s. Parker also deploys scientific evidence concerning climate conditions of the period, and his use of 'natural' as well as 'human' archives transforms our understanding of the World Crisis. Changes in the prevailing weather patterns during the 1640s and 1650s - longer and harsher winters, and cooler and wetter summers - disrupted growing seasons, causing dearth, malnutrition, and disease, along with more deaths and fewer births. Some contemporaries estimated that one-third of the global population died, and much of the surviving historical evidence supports their pessimism. Parker's demonstration of the link between climate change and worldwide catastrophe 350 years ago stands as an extraordinary important historical achievement. The implications of his study for the present day are equally important: are we at all prepared today for the catastrophes that climate change could bring tomorrow?"--Jacket84243ocn007093297book19790.59Parker, GeoffreyEurope in crisis, 1598-1648History+-+83757768157449ocn043634897book20000.33Winter, J.

The Cambridge History of Warfare is a comprehensive account of war in the West. The combined effort of seven leading experts, this book treats the history of all aspects of the subject: the development of warfare on land, seas, and air; weapons and technology; strategy and defense; discipline and intelligence; mercenaries and standing armies; cavalry and infantry; chivalry and blitzkreig; guerrilla assault and nuclear warfare. It places in context particular key elements in the history of armed engagement, from the Greek victory at Marathon, through the advent of gunpower in medieval England and France, to the jungle warfare of Vietnam and the strategic air strikes of the Gulf War. Throughout, there is an emphasis on the socio-economic aspects of military progress and how these help explain the rise of the West over the past two millennia to global military dominance+-+404361670511ocn220629441book19860.10Geoffrey Parker : photographs and paper cuttings+-+8414110485+-+8414110485Thu Oct 16 15:51:32 EDT 2014batch31139
