9780810868410: The A to Z of the Russo-Japanese War (The A to Z Guide Series)

The A to Z of the Russo-Japanese War provides considerable breadth and depth of coverage based on Japanese, Russian, and Western sources. The breadth is accomplished through a wide-ranging introduction, a detailed chronology and an extensive bibliography. The depth comes in the hundreds of entries on military and political leaders, major battles and lesser encounters, tactics and strategy as well as the weaponry and of course the causes and consequences.

About the Author :

Rotem Kowner serves as the chair of the Department of East Asian Studies at the University of Haifa and teaches Japanese modern history and culture. He is one of the leading authorities on the war, has written extensively on the conflict, and also co-organized a major international conference on “The Russo-Japanese War & the 20th Century: An Assessment from a Centennial Perspective.”

Review :

"... as a standard reference, Kowner's dictionary does an admirable job of providing readers with balanced readable reference work on the Russo-Japanese War."   
John W. Steinberg, Journal of Military History 70 (2006), 1149.

"... Kowner provides what must be the most thorough reference account of the Russo-Japanese War produced in the English language.  ... The Historical Dictionary of the Russo-Japanese War will be the reference source of choice for any library where the conflict is the subject of study or research. It also belongs in libraries specializing in military history or East Asian or Russian/Slavic studies."
       Tony Chalcraft, Reference Reviews 20, no. 7 (2006), 52.

"Kowner has worked prodigiously over the past decade to mark the conflict's centenary ... and he is therefore well suited to the task."  "... Kowner's dictionary provides balanced and accurate coverage... It is also unfortunate that the dictionary was unavailable 15 years ago, when I began my own research on the topic. It would have saved me a lot of work."            
David Schimmelpenninck van der Oye, Journal of Slavic Military Studies 20 (2007), 775, 776

The centrality of the 1905 Russo-Japanese war in modern history, believes Jowner, is still not sufficiently recognized. He aims to correct that problem with this historical dictionary, which not only covers the battles, weaponry, and personalities of the war, but also the international events and conflicts, agreements, schemes, and projects that led to the war, as well as the political, social, and military consequences of the conflict in the years leading up to World War I and occasionally beyond. (Reference and Research Book News, November 2009)

The war history volumes of the "A to Z" series will prove useful references for both amateur and professional historians, and would make a valuable addition to any library, particularly as they cost less than other similar, often less comprehensive historical dictionaries. (Strategy Page)

Description du livre Scarecrow Press. Paperback. État : New. Paperback. 640 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 1.6in.Every war leaves an imprint in history, but few have had such a pervasive impact in so many respects as the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. Politically, it fatally weakened the Russian Empire while allowing Japan to follow more dangerous paths. Diplomatically, it shook the power balance in Europe and reshaped it in the form of two coalitions, leading to World War I. With regard to the art of warfare, it emphasized the use of trench warfare and machine guns on land and the deployment of battleships and the use of torpedoes at sea. Yet, despite its importance at the time, it has become very much a forgotten war. The A to Z of the Russo-Japanese War provides considerable breadth and depth of coverage based on Japanese, Russian, and Western sources. The breadth is accomplished through a wide-ranging introduction, a detailed chronology and an extensive bibliography. The depth comes in the hundreds of entries on military and political leaders, major battles and lesser encounters, tactics and strategy as well as the weaponry and of course the causes and consequences. The result is the first major reference work on the Russo-Japanese War in English and the largest in any language. This item ships from multiple locations.
