Abstract:

"Jeremy Black's book re-evaluates warfare in recent times. Moving beyond the Cold War paradigm, he focuses instead on the variety of post-1945 conflicts and the diversity of goals and methods that have been employed. Central to War since 1945 is its global coverage and, in particular, its emphasis on the importance of the Third World in any account of this period. Black argues that the Cold War narrative, so securely located within the Western intellectual tradition, pays insufficient attention to the diversity of military force structures, methods, goals and cultures that have existed in modern times. Rather than follow familiar assessments of warfare that concentrate too exclusively on success or failure measured by improvements in weaponry or increases in numbers of troops, Black presents an account of warfare since 1945 that focuses on the specific tasks and goals that have challenged military forces large and small throughout the world. As such, this book provides an original interpretation of modern warfare." "Concluding with a consideration of the current 'war on terror', this topical, accessible and clearly argued book will be important to all those interested in conflict and military history."--Jacket.
