This is the first study to show how the Royal Navy's ideas about the meaning and application of seapower shaped its policies in the interwar period. It challenges the accepted view that the shortcomings of Britain's naval leaders resulted in poor strategic planning and an inability to meet the challenges of World War II.

Information is power. For more than five hundred years the success or failure of nations has been determined by a country’s ability to acquire knowledge and technical skill and transform them into strength and prosperity. Leading historian Jeremy Black approaches global history from a distinctive perspective, focusing on the relationship between information and society and demonstrating how the understanding and use of information have been the primary factors in the development and character of the modern age. Black suggests that the West’s ascension was a direct result of its institutions and social practices for acquiring, employing, and retaining information and the technology that was ultimately produced. His cogent and well-reasoned analysis looks at cartography and the hardware of communication, armaments and sea power, mercantilism and imperialism, science and astronomy, as well as bureaucracy and the management of information, linking the history of technology with the history of global power while providing important indicators for the future of our world.

The Great War tore the fabric of Europe apart, killing over 35 million men and challenging the notion of heroism in war. Air and Sea Power in World War I focuses on the experience of World War I from the perspective of British pilots and sailors themselves, to demonstrate that the army-centric view of war studies has been too limited. The Royal Flying Corps, created in 1912, adapted quickly to the needs of modern warfare, driven by the enthusiasm of its men. In contrast, the lack of modernisation in the Royal Navy, despite the unveiling of HMS Dreadnought in 1906, undermined Britain’s dominance of the seas. By considering five key aspects of the war experience, this book analyses how motivation was created and sustained. Featuring new primary source material, including the journals of servicemen themselves, this book will be essential reading for students and scholars of World War I and of Naval, Aviation and Military History.

Military history therefore has to be more than a technical analysis of armed conflict. War in the Modern World since 1815 addresses war as a cultural phenomenon, discusses its meaning in different socities and explores the various contexts of military action.

This work reframes sixteenth-century history , incorporating the Ottoman empire more thoroughly into European, Asian and world history. It analyzes the Ottoman Empire's expansion eastward in the contexts of claims to universal sovereignty, Levantine power politics, and the struggle for control of the oriental trade. Challenging the notion that the sixteenth-century Ottoman Empire was merely a reactive economic entity driven by the impulse to territorial conquest, Brummett portrays it as inheritor of Euro-Asian trading networks and participant in the contest for commercial hegemony from Genoa and Venice to the Indian Ocean. Brummett shows that the development of seapower was crucial to this endeavor, enabling the Ottomans to subordinate both Venice and the Mamluk kingdom to dependency relationships and providing the Ottoman ruling class access to commercial investment and wealth.

Horatio Nelson is the most famous seaman in British history. Many books about him have appeared until today but the study of Alfred Thayer Mahan, published in 1897, is still one of the best written pieces and a standard work in the field of Nelson’s biography research. It was part of Mahan’s seapower studies and contains Nelson’s impressive life story as well as Mahan’s own view on naval strategy and warfare tactics. »It is essential to the completeness and rounding off of the author's discussion of the Influence of Sea Power, that he present a study, from his own point of view, of the one man who in himself summed up and embodied the greatness of the possibilities which Sea Power comprehends, – the man for whom genius and opportunity worked together, to make him the personification of the Navy of Great Britain.« Reprint of the original edition from 1897. Volume 1 of 2. Alfred Thayer Mahan (1840-1914) was a US Navy officer and author of influential marine history and strategy books. His work »The Influence of Sea Power upon History«, published in 1890, established the modern US Navy doctrine of maritime predominance: the higher the naval power of a country, the greater its global impact. Mahan’s concepts of naval war tactics were adapted by many navies all over the world.
