Arranged by historical period, each chapter begins with a map to help readers locate key areas and geographical features, followed by A-Z entries with bibliographical references. Complete and comprehensive coverage, with new articles on 21st-century invasions in Russia, Ukraine, and North Vietnam, plus a wide variety of additional historic essays. Categories of entries invlude Countries, Invasions & Conquests, and Individuals, to provide a well-rounded overview of all aspects of invasions, including their political, economic, religious, and cultural ramifications. The entries on Leaders-among them Sargon, Alexander the Great, William the Conquerer, and Adolf Hitler-deal with people who sought to gain control, expand power, or exert religious or political influence over others through military means. Other useful features include cross-references, a cumulative biography, and a comprehensive subject index.
