Bestselling author and prize-winning historian David Day's controversial new history of the modern world. Conquest is a groundbreaking new book that challenges the context of Australian history as well as the history of the rest of the world. In this follow-up to his highly acclaimed book, Claiming a Continent, David Day questions popular ideas about society and re-examines history ranging from Cortes in the 16th century to Hitler in the 20th century. Conquest explores the prolonged and bloody process that societies use to make other nations' land their own. Whether it is the English in Australia or the Normans in England, the Spanish in Mexico or the Muslims in Spain, the Japanese in Korea or the Chinese in Tibet, the process of claiming conquered lands has shaped the nature of these societies as well as the nature of the present world. David Day examines the way societies across the world have secured their claims of ownership on lands occupied by other people. With its far-reaching implications, Conquest is certain to provoke widespread debate both in Australia and internationally.
