Summary Throughout time, invasions and conquests have played a remarkable role in shaping our world and defining our boundaries, both physically and culturally. The Encyclopedia of Invasions and Conquests, a comprehensive guide to approximately 140 invasions, conquests, battles, and occupations from ancient times to the present, takes readers on a journey that includes the Roman conquest of Britain, the Portuguese colonization of Brazil, and the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. The 192 entries - on invasions, conquests, occupations, and political and military leaders - are arranged alphabetically within historical periods. Each chapter provides a map to help readers locate key areas and geographical features, and bibliographic references appear at the end of each entry. Other features include cross-references, a cumulative bibliography, and a comprehensive subject index.
Students of history, military history, and political science as well as general readers will find this work full of all the information necessary for a complete understanding of the role of invasions and conquests in ancient and modern societies.
