- Publisher's Summary
- Preclassical and indigenous nonwestern military institutions and methods of warfare are the chief subjects of this annotated bibliography of work published 1967-1997. Classical antiquity, post-Roman Europe and the westernized armed forces of the 20th century, although covered, receive less systematic attention. Emphasis is on historical studies of military organization and the relationships between military and other social institutions, rather than wars and battles. Especially rich in references to the periodical literature, the bibliography is divided into eight parts: general and comparative topics; the ancient world; Eurasia since antiquity; sub-Saharan Africa and Oceania; pre-Columbian America; postcontact America; the contemporary nonwestern world; and philosophical, social scientific, natural scientific and other works not primarily historical.
