Abstract:

This is an updating of my 2014 bibliography of English-language books and articles onthe modern military history of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, to include over200 new publications, largely materials published through the end of 2018. As was the case with the 2014 version, modern is defined as from approximately the sixteenth century to the present day. This bibliography is also organized by region in alphabetical order, and within each region, books and articles are listed in separate categories. Although the bibliographer aims for comprehensive coverage, the selection of sources isultimately a matter of judgment, and the bibliography comes to be defined by what is not included just as much as by what is included. Regarding the former, the reader will note that the following types of sources have been largely omitted memoirs and other first-hand accounts, militaria-related books, and American-centric sources on the Pacific, Korean and Vietnam War. On the other hand, this bibliography does include, for example, sources of the origins and termination of conflicts in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East.
