How Societies Overwhelm Others

David Day

  • The story of conquest through the ages - from the Normans in England to the British in Australia, from the Germans in Poland to the Chinese in Tibet
  • From exploitation to genocide - shows the wide range of strategies conquerors have used to take over other people's land, throughout history
  • Illustrates the deep and long-lasting consequences of conquest - not just for the conquered but also for the conquerors themselves
