The Empire As A Powe
For this essay I used various specialized sources, such as Andy Mangels' Star Wars: The Essential Guide to Characters
(first edition), the wonderful Bob Vitas? The Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia
, Version 4.1, and of course the information provided by the Databank section of the Official Site
. Other sources were Paul Kennedy?s The Rise and the Fall of the Great Powers
(throughout amazing book) and the Contemporary History II and Modern History II courses (prof. G. Rumi and B. Vigezzi) of the academical year 2000-2001, at the Universit? Statale di Milano.
