The product of a conference sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute, these essays explore responsibly almost all facets of the future of the U.S. Navy. The expectation of continuing turmoil in the Third World, and increased dependency upon resources from abroad, suggest a continuing need for sea power. But it is far from self-evident what the proper mix of different types of ships should be, or the nature of the naval "balance" with the Soviet Union, given the asymmetries of ships, geography and missions. This is a good contribution to the debate.
