Merchant navies represent economic and industrial strength. This study revises the definition of maritime power through a more comprehensive understanding and appreciation for the roles played by the merchant marine of a nation.


'The authors show how the British, American and Japanese merchant marines indeed played an important role in the relations between these nations as "the non-fighting part of their maritime power". This study sheds light on an aspect of maritime history which has received little attention. Recommended.' - The Northern Mariner
