A people without a country : the Kurds and Kurdistan by Abdul Rahman Ghassemlou( Book )

52 editions published between 1978 and 1993 in 4 languages and held by 1,743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The 16 million Kurds are the largest nation in the world with no state of their own. Their history is one of constant revolts and bloody repression, massacres, deportations and renewed insurrection. This classic collection of writings from Kurdish intellectuals and other internationally respected experts discusses the origins of Kurdish nationalism and analyzes their contemporary demand for autonomy in the aftermath of the Gulf crisis and the setting up of safe havens. It combines historical analysis of the Kurds under the Ottoman Empire with a thorough study of Kurdish life in all areas of Kurdistan -- Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, and the former Soviet Union. Later sections cover recent Kurdish history with emphasis on the Iraqi Kurds, and the Kurdish movement in Turkey. Also included is an assessment of "Operation Provide Comfort" and the failure of the U.S. and international law to develop an adequate response to the Kurdish crisis following the Gulf War." -- Back cover

The history of terrorism : from antiquity to al Qaeda by Grard Chaliand( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This authoritative work provides an essential perspective on terrorism by offering a rare opportunity for analysis and reflection at a time of ongoing violence, chilling threats, and renewed reprisals. In it, some of the best international specialists working on the subject today examine terrorism's long and complex history from antiquity to the present day and find that terror, long the weapon of the weak against the strong, is a tactic as old as warfare itself. Beginning with the Zealots of Antiquity, the contributors discuss the Assassins of the Middle Ages, the 1789 Terror movement in Europe, Bolshevik terrorism during the Russian Revolution, Stalinism, "resistance" terrorism during World War II, and Latin American revolutionary movements of the late 1960s. Finally, they consider the emergence of modern transnational terrorism, focusing on the roots of Islamic terrorism, al Qaeda, and the rise of the contemporary suicide martyr. Along the way, they provide a groundbreaking analysis of how terrorism has been perceived throughout history. What becomes powerfully clear is that only through deeper understanding can we fully grasp the present dangers of a phenomenon whose repercussions are far from over."--Book cover

The art of war in world history : from antiquity to the nuclear age by Grard Chaliand( Book )

28 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This engrossing anthology gathers together a remarkable collection of writings on the use of strategy in war. Gérard Chaliand has ranged over the whole of human history in assembling this collection - the result is an integration of the annals of military thought that provides a learned framework for understanding global political history. Included are writings from ancient and modern Europe, China, Byzantium, the Arab world, Persia, and the Ottoman Empire. Alongside well-known militarists such as Julius Caesar, Napoleon, Walter Raleigh, Rommel, and many others are "irregulars" such as Cortés, Lawrence of Arabia, and even Gandhi. Contrary to standard interpretations stressing competition between land and sea powers, or among rival Christian societies, Chaliand shows the great importance of the struggles between nomadic and sedentary peoples, and of the conflicts between Christianity and Islam. With the invention of firepower, a relatively recent occurrence in the history of warfare, modes of organization and strategic concepts - elements reflecting the nature of a society - have been key to how war is waged
The peasants of North Vietnam by Grard Chaliand( Book )

Ce livre est le résultat d'une enquête effectuée en octobre-novembre 1967 dans les villages de plusieurs provinces du Delta du Fleuve Rouge (ex-Tonkin), région la plus peuplée de la R.D.V. Précédée d'une étude historique qui rappelle les données sociales spécifiques du Vietnam, cette enquête sociologique et économique constitue le document le plus complet sur le peuple vietnamien à l'heure de l'escalade. Elle ne s'y limite pas et c'est, de l'intérieur, depuis la période coloniale, à travers la Première résistance, la Réforme agraire, les réalisations de l'Indépendance, la collectivisation et l'escalade, l'histoire de la R.D.V., telle que l'ont vécue les paysans vietnamiens et les cadres du Parti et de l'État en contact avec la base.

Nomadic empires : from Mongolia to the Danube by Grard Chaliand( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 493 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nomadic Empires sheds new light on 2,000 years of military history and geopolitics. The Mongol Empire of Genghis-Khan and his heirs, as is well known, was the greatest empire in world history. For 2,000 years, from the fifth century B.C. to the fifteenth century A.D., the steppe areas of Asia, from the borders of Manchuria to the Black Sea, were a "zone of turbulence," threatening settled peoples from China to Russia and Hungary, including Iran, India, the Byzantine Empire, and even Syria. It was a true world stage that was affected by these destructive nomads."--Jacket

A global history of war : from Assyria to the twenty-first century by Grard Chaliand( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While many books examine specific wars, few study the history of war worldwide and from an evolutionary perspective. A Global History of War is one of the first works to focus not on the impact of war on civilizations, but rather on how civilizations impact the art and execution of war. World-renowned scholar Gérard Chaliand concentrates on the peoples and cultures who have determined how war is conducted and reveals the lasting historical consequences of combat, offering a unique picture of the major geopolitical and civilizational clashes that have rocked our common history and made us who we are today. Chaliand's questions provoke a new understanding of the development of armed conflict. How did the foremost non-European empires rise and fall? What critical role did the nomads of the Eurasian steppes and their descendants play? Chaliand illuminates the military cultures and martial traditions of the great Eurasian empires, including Turkey, China, Iran, and Mongolia. Based on fifteen years of research, this book provides a novel military and strategic perspective on the crises and conflicts that have shaped the current world order." -- Publisher's description
