Description
From the "ABC Powers," those South American countries that had achieved stable independence by the early 20th century (Argentina, Brazil, and Chile) to the "Zulu War," some 800 entries are presented by Hodge (political science, U. of British Columbia, Canada) in this two-volume encyclopedia distilling information on that era between the Napoleonic Wars and the outbreak of World War I strongly characterized by the extension of power and dominion of some nations over many others by military coercion or by political and economic compulsions. The encyclopedia's entries cover: acts, conventions, treaties, and understandings; alliances; artists, intellectuals, inventors, and explorers; battles; concepts, labels, and slogans; conferences and congresses; empires; institutions; leaders and statesmen; monarchs and dynasties; movements; soldiers; technologies and inventions; and wars and conflicts from every area of the world, including the polar regions. Also included are 13 maps and a 21-page chronology, in addition to a collection of 30 primary documents, examples of which include the declaration of the Monroe Doctrine, Kipling's call to take up the "White Man's Burden," Disraeli's defense of the British Empire, and Von Clausewitz's assessment of the military legacy of Napoleon.
