Seapower - TILL, GeoffreyTaylor and Francis, 2004, Paperback ..
Condition: Near Fine. Corners of upper wrap very lightly rubbed otherwise a very well presented copy.
One thing that rapidly became clear is that nothing about navies can be taken in isolation. Like the ocean itself, seapower is 'all joined up'. For this reason, contemporary concerns need to be put into their overall context backwards and forwards in terms of time, sideways in terms of geographic area, up and down on the spectrum of naval roles from the military, through the diplomatic to the constabulary and beyond. Seapower in the twenty-first century is a big subject, especially when we try to explore its origins in the Mesolithic era! My hope is that this book will help set the agenda for the seafarers of the twenty-first century and for everyone interested in them. It is intended to spark some thoughts that will help the world's sailors navigate their way through some quite uncertain waters. 430pp. Index. Size: 8vo Medium (8" x 5½" approx.)
