Maritime Supremacy & the Opening of the Western Mind
Peter Padfield (au). In the great wars of modern history, maritime powers have always prevailed over land-based empires. This original book by the best naval historian of his generation charts the growth of these powers in various western countries while revealing the way in which supremacy at sea freed thought & society. Those nations attaining mastery at sea have been distinguished by liberty, flexibility, & enterprise. Details the struggles of the first supreme maritime powers of the modern age, the Dutch & the British, & ends with the emergence of the ultimate successor, the U.S. Changes in society, politics, trade -- including the slave trade -- & in naval capability are interwoven with descriptions of the great sea battles by which world power was won. Illustrations & maps.
