5.0 out of 5 stars Almost everything you wanted to know about the weapons and technology (and things you probably didn't want to know), 14 Aug 2006

This review is from: The New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology: Revised Edition: Star Wars (Paperback)
This book is another great installment in the New Essential Guide series. It is highly entertaining and a must have for any Star Wars nerd. Well written and full of nice 3D illustrations, the book is highly entertaining as well as being informative.

The book covers seven theme-based categories which also constitute chapters. Each chapter deals with an aspect of the weaponry and technology of the Star Wars galaxy. Thus, for example, the category "Melee Weapons" contains entries on various types of hack-n-slash weapons, such as the legendary lightsaber, while the category "Superweapons" contains entries on weapons of mass destruction such as the Death Star, the Galaxy Gun, the Sun Crusher and all those Imperial superweapons that Star Wars fans have come to love.

Weapons and technology from not only the movies, but also the vast amount of Expanded Universe material, including comics and video games, are included in this book. Thus the range of topics covered range from the well-known and celebrated weapons like blasters and lightsabers to the latest, and to some silly, weaponry and technology of the Yuzhaan Vong (these are some of the things you might not want to know - unless you're a fan of the Vongs).

Each chapter also contains information on the historical, cultural, political, and philosophical backgrounds of the weapons, such as Grand Moff Tarkin's "Doctrine of Fear" as being the political philosophy behind all the Superweapons churned out by the Empire. There is also a comprehensive list of manufacturers in the Star Wars galaxy.

The book is packed with information and topics are described in an in-universe perspective, as has become more or less customary in the world of Star Wars. Each entry is also accompanied by a charts and illustrations and relevant quote from within the Star Wars universe.

To the fanboys and fangirls out there, the New Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology is recommendable for its informative value and the entertainment factor as well.
