       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.

       science as well as general readers will find this work 
       full of all the information necessary for a complete
