Wrapper blurb

Recent years have been turbulent ones for British sea power. First, there was the controversial John Nott defense review of 1981 which resulted in the resignation of the then Navy Minister, Keith Speed. Then came Britain's involvement in the biggest and most demanding maritime war since 1945 in the successful battle for the recovery of the Falkland Islands. Britain's defense policy in general, and the Royal Navy's role in particular, have been under constant scrutiny, with ministers torn between the conflicting aims of maintaining a modern and efficient force and keeping costs down. Many fundamental questions have been raised about British maritime requirements and The Future of British Sea Power goes some way to providing the answers.

The articles contained in the book are by the country's leading experts, such as the Chief of the Defense Staff, Lord Lewin; Sir John Fieldhouse, the First Sea Lord; Sir Frank Cooper, The Ministry of Defense's Chief Scientist; Professor Sir Ronald Mason; and many others.

The book is introduced with an important statement about the Government's policy toward the Navy by Michael Heseltine, the Secretary of State for Defense.
