Riassunto: This is the MP3CD audiobook format.
Beginning with the premise that all civilizations owe their origins to war-making, Keegan probes the meanings, motivations, and methods underlying war in different societies over the course of more than two thousand years. Following the progress of human aggression in its full historical sweep from the strangely ritualistic combat of Stone Age peoples to the warfare of mass destruction in the present age his illuminating and lively narrative gives us all the world's great warrior cultures, including the Zulus, the samurai, and the horse peoples of the steppe, as well as the famed war-makers of the West. He shows why honor has always been accorded to the soldierly virtues, whatever the cultural context, and how war has maintained its singular hold on the imagination, reaching into the most secret places of the human heart, where self dissolves rational purpose, where pride reigns, where emotion is paramount, where instinct is king.
From the Publisher:
"Perhaps the most remarkable study of warfare that has yet been written."--The New York Times Book Review
"A masterpiece...This is one of those rare books which could still be required reading in its field a hundred years from now."--The New Yorker
