WAR AND SOCIETY IN EARLY-MODERN EUROPE 1495-1715
AbstractWhen in 1992 Frank Tallett first published this book in Routledge's War in Context Series, edited by Jeremy Black, it was very favourably received. Military historians will therefore welcome its re-issue in paperback. This work, which grew out of a course Tallett taught at the University of Reading, is consequently one of synthesis, rather than of original research, but in it he has had to master the extremely complex and often contradictory literature that has gown up around the whole vexed question of the 'Military Revolution' that is supposed to have taken place in Early-Modern Europe. The great value of this book, however, does not lie simply in Tallett's clear-headed command of these academic debates. Rather, it should be of particular interest to all military historians (and not just those with an interest in the period of the Military Revolution) because in its approach it is the very model of what modern War and Societies Studies should be.
