The end of the Cold War has affected debates about maritime strategy, doctrine, operations and technology. This has led to an intellectual reconsideration of the theory and practice of maritime power. This book brings together internationally renowned scholars to address these themes in a systematic and overarching way. It considers the applicability of classical strategic thinking today as well as the evolution of contemporary doctrine. Using the United Kingdom as a case study, the volume evaluates how the changing face of maritime power is influencing western navies.
