From the back of the book:
"House Davion has dominated Inner Sphere politics, especially the military-industrial complex, for centuries. A drive for technological innovation that reaches both the military and civilian sectors; a society built around the freedoms of the every-day man; a feudal system that empowers the First Prince of House Davion like no other: the swords of the Federated Suns have sliced out the largest and arguably most powerful realm in the history of mankind. Despite of the recent ravages of a civil war, the people of House Davion know their place in history.
Handbook: House Davion provides an in-depth look at the politics, the cultures and the ever-present military of one of the most dominant players in the Inner Sphere. Yet Handbook: House Davion includes more than just background information, providing a plethora of new creatures, personnel weapons, life paths and more, for both Classic BattleTech and Classic BattleTech RPG campaigns set in the Federated Suns!"
