Navies and Foreign Policy

As the title promises, this book by a British scholar at Aberystwyth goes well beyond capabilities and military doctrine. Navies as symbols of prestige, instruments of bargaining and manipulation, contributors to nation-building, means of reassurance for allies, and so on, are all subjected to analysis. A good way to begin responding to the recurring question: "Why do we need a navy?"
