How do I find stats on how well books sold?

I'm looking for ways, preferably quick and online, to find out what bestselling books for the past few years have been. Searchable by genre is a plus.

I need examples of books in certain genres that have sold well over the last few (broadly defined) years. Say, from about 1999 forward. Specifically, I am looking for books about: Environmental issues; Asian culture and/or Asian history; or Military issues (preferably limited to "impact a nation's military has on another, colonized nation").
Ideally, I'd like links to sites with this info (including but not limited to bestseller lists), and bonus points for stats on how many books were sold.
If you can't help with that, suggestions of books you know of within these genres that you think sold well are appreciated, too. Much obliged.
