Reaping the Rewards: How the Governor, Priest, Taxman, and Garrison Secure Victory in World History

In this sweeping romp through world military history, strategy, and logistics, Dr. Lee explores the “four pillars” of conquest (the titular governor, priest, tax man and garrison) and he then compares how those same pillars worked in non-state societies on the Eurasian steppe and in the Native American woodlands.
