War and society in revolutionary Europe, 1770-1870 by Geoffrey Best( Book )

39 editions published between 1982 and 1998 in English and held by 1,166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Beginning with the armies, navies and internal security forces of Europe on the eve of the French Revolution, the author explains in detail the vast armed forces and militarized societies of the Napoleonic age. He then proceeds to an analysis of the contest between Europe's continuing revolutionary underground and the armies of reactionary and alien governments, culminating with the revolutions and wars of national liberation of 1848-66."--BOOK JACKET
Churchill : a study in greatness by Geoffrey Best( Book )

32 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winston Churchill's inspiring leadership in the Second World War once put him above criticism. In recent years his record has come under attack. In Churchill: A Study in Greatness, one of Britain's most distinguished historians makes sense of this extraordinary man and his long, controversial, colourful, contradictory and heroic career. What was at the heart of him? Was he a romantic or a realist? How central was his part in Britain's survival and in the defeat of Hitler? Geoffrey Best brings out both his strengths and his weaknesses, looking past the many received versions of Churchill in a biography that balances the private and the public man and offers a fresh insight into his character."--Jacket

War and law since 1945 by Geoffrey Best( Book )

47 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 859 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civilization has long sought to limit the violence and ugliness of war. This book traces the recent history of these efforts, and explores important contemporary issues in the area. Geoffrey Best shows how the Second World War prompted reconstruction of international law, and charts the fortunes of its relations with war since then. He critically surveys the whole range of contemporary armed conflicts - high-tech international wars, wars of national liberation, revolutionary risings, and civil wars. Far more than a litany of the trouble-spots and tragedies of the second half of the twentieth century, this book offers an original and thought-provoking approach to contemporary history, law, politics, and ethics, and will be essential reading for anyone concerned with war
