I take great pleasure in sharing with Members the new works emerging from the Naval Institute Press, books central to our mission of advancing the professional, literary, and scientific understanding of sea power and other issues critical to national defense.
Our newest title is The Accidental Admiral: A Sailor Takes Command at NATO by Admiral James Stavridis, USN (Ret.), which offers an intimate look at the challenges he faced as Supreme Allied Commander Europe, 2009–13. Be sure to check out the exclusive excerpt in this issue on pages 64-68.
Admiral Stavridis, who currently serves as Dean of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and is Chair of the Naval Institute’s Board of Directors, has been an Institute Member since his days as a midshipman.
