The Rise and Fall Of the Great Powers Economic Change and Military Conflict From 1500 To 2000

by Kennedy, Paul

From the publisher: "In this wide-ranging analysis of global politics over the past five centuries, Yale historian Paul Kennedy focuses on the critical relationship of economic to military power as it affects the rise and fall of empires. Nations project their military power according to their economic resources and in defense of their broad economic interests. But, Kennedy argues, the cost of projecting that military power is more than even the largest economies can afford indefinitely, especially when new technologies and new centers of production shift economic power away from established Great Powers - hence the rise and fall of nations."
