The 21st century confronts the RAN and the navies of the world with a new environment.
Repeatedly, pundits remind us that defence forces must move with the times-but how often do they say what that means in substance? This is exactly the challenge taken by the eminent contributors to this book.
Senior representatives from navies of five continents and of island states reveal directly the demands they expect to face and the plans they have to meet them.
Leading analysts of world events explain the new international environment and pinpoint its implications for sea power.
Young officers of the RAN envisage a future decade and their ideas for development of the RAN.
Experts in strategy, technology and international law add their insights, to generate a picture which no one with a stake in future maritime affairs can afford to disregard.
