Read full description of the books:



No book has covered, so comprehensively, nearly 4,000 years of sword-making history or paid due attention to the hilt weapons of Africa, Mesoamerica, China, Central Asia and Indonesia, which merit more than the few lines they usually receive in weapons encyclopedias. However, on the ground of technical excellence, cultural significance and evolutionary vigor, pride of place is given to European, Japanese and Islamic swords. The text provides expert appraisal of the weapons themselves, and is rich in historical and background detail.
