Of Arms And Men: A History Of War, Weapons, And Aggression - Taschenbuch

ID: 388590921

Oxford University Press. Very Good with no dust jacket. 2002. Softcover. 0192803840 . X, 513 pages, wrappers, very good. From Library Journal: Works of this kind draw their credibility from their editor. Hastings is familiar with the literature, sensitive to English prose, and aware of a good story. His use of narrative quality as the basic criterion for inclusion results in a pastiche of original accounts and secondary material from familiar sourcesthe Bible, Voltaire, Gibbon, and, occasionally, Hastings. The ancient and medieval anecdotes are a bit shopworn. The modern ones are so ethnocentric that Oxford might have published a book of British military anecdotes. Within these limits however, Hastings succeeds in illustrating the soldier's experience in both universal and specific aspects. ; 513 pages ., Oxford University Press, 2002, Oxford University Press, New York/Oxford/London: 1990. Softcover. Very good condition. The appearance of the crossbow on the European battle field in A.D. 1100 as the weapon of choice for shooting down knights threatened the status quo of medieval chivalric fighting techniques. By 1139 the Church had intervened, outlawing the use of the crossbow among Christians. With this edict, arms control was born. As Robert L. O'Connell reveals in this vividly written history of weapons in Western culture, that first attempt at an arms control measure characterizes the complex and often paradoxical relationship between men and arms throughout the centuries. In a sweeping narrative that ranges from prehistoric times to the nuclear age, O'Connell demonstrates how social and economic conditions determine the types of weapons and the tactics used in warfare and how, in turn, innovations in weapons technology often undercut social values. He describes, for instance, how the invention of the gun required a redefinition of courage from aggressive ferocity to calmness under fire; and how the machine gun in World War I so overthrew traditional notions of combat that Lord Kitchener exclaimed, "This isn't war!" The technology unleashed during the Great War radically altered our perceptions of ourselves, as these new weapons made human qualities almost irrelevant in combat. With the invention of the atomic bomb, humanity itself became subservient to the weapons it had produced. Of Arms and Men brilliantly integrates the evolution of politics, weapons, strategy, and tactics into a coherent narrative, one spiced with striking portraits of men in combat and penetrating insights into why men go to war. Includes an Index. Robert L. O'Connell is Senior Analyst at the U.S. Army Intelligence Agency's Foreign Science and Technology Center. He is a former member of the U.S. Delegation to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva. "Full of fresh and sometimes provocative interpretations, couch in a stimulating writing style which laypersons as well as scholars will appreciate." - Library Journal ISBN: 0195053605., Oxford University Press, New York/Oxford/London: 1990

ID: 31117433

New York: Oxford University Press,. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1989. Soft Cover. 0195053605 . 367 pages, pictorial wrappers, very good. From Booklist: "O'Connell, a man with impressive credentials as a defense analyst, disarmament negotiator, and historian, has produce a challenging, interdisciplinary study of the historical relationship between culture, weapons technology, and warfare. He emphases throughout the large components of irrationality in this relationship, the frequently disastrous lag of culture (and therefore politics) behind military technology, and the effectiveness of arm limitation agreements primarily in reducing potential damage to innocent bystanders." ., Oxford University Press, 1989
