The Rise and Fall of British Naval Mastery
Paul M. Kennedy
First published in 1976, this book is the first detailed examination of the history of British sea power since A.T. Mahan's classic The Influence of Sea Power on History, published in 1890. In analyzing the reasons for the rise and fall of Great Britain as a predominant maritime nation in the period from the Tudors to the present day, Professor Kennedy sets the Royal Navy within a framework of national, international, economic, political and strategical considerations.
The author is a specialist on Great Power struggles and he was tutored by A. J. P. Taylor at St. Antony's College, Oxford. His most famous book, The Rise and Fall of the Great Powers, was on the reading list of the IR class I took in Cambridge. This is the most admirable aspect of British culture or history.
