Reviews

'This new edition of Seapower maintains the standards of its predecessors as the standard work on contemporary maritime strategy. Everyone who wishes to remain up to date in the subject must read it.' -- Eric Grove, University of Salford, UK 'Seapower is one of those books I keep within arm's reach. No one who does business in great waters, or makes policy pertaining to the sea, should be without a copy.' -- James Holmes, US Naval War College '...like its previous two incarnations, Geoffrey Till's Seapower ...is quite simply the standard work on the profession of arms at sea.' -- The Naval Review 'For both the novice and the seasoned professional returning to the subject of maritime strategy after a lapse of time, Geoffrey Till's Seapower is just the book with which to focus on this subject, understand the broad principles involved, and learn of the challenges ahead.' -- John Hattendorf, Naval War College Review Reviews of previous editions: 'A powerful combination of plain English and an innate ability to break down the component parts of a complex subject into a readily digestible form before leading the reader gently through the ensuing maze.' -- The Naval Review 'A definitive study of the role of seapower, past, present and future.' -- Parliamentary Maritime Review `A landmark work ... Till's excellent book will dominate maritime reading lists for years to come.' - Colin S. Gray, RUSI Journal "A tour de force, a milestone work and essential professional reading." - Ship's Telegraph (Ministry of Defence) "In all, Seapower is very probably the best single work on sea power and maritime strategy to have been published for many years." - Journal of the Australian Naval Institute "If you happen to be teaching a course on sea power, it would be the perfect basic text." - USNI Proceedings "A comprehensive look at the political and military significance of the oceans in the new century...has much to offer students and the general public as well." - The Mariner's Mirror "Seapower: A Guide for the Twenty-First Century is without doubt the best single publication on power in the maritime domain and naval strategy in general. It will remain a standard text book for those teaching naval strategy for many years to come. The book is a must read" - Abel Esterhuyse, Scientia Militaria
