Nineteen essays, written by historians and naval officers, study the use of naval power over the present century, commenting on naval purpose and potential. Noting that since the Post Cold War maritime power has shifted from deep ocean operations to coastal use of sea power, the essays consider how navies should be organized, equipped, trained and employed; whether naval battles have been offensive or defensive; the dangerous trend of naval fleets carrying nuclear arsenals; the types, cost and effectiveness of sea power, and who can afford it.
