What is the purpose of navies in the modern world, and what types of warship does this require? This volume tackles these questions by looking at naval developments, both technological and operational, in the quarter century since the end of the Cold War. What is the purpose of navies in the modern world, and what types of warship does this require? This volume tackles these questions by looking at naval developments, both technological and operational, in the quarter century since the end of the Cold War. It provides the overall political and economic context, assesses significant naval operations from the first Gulf War to Russia’s annexation of Crimea, reviews changes in the objectives and composition of the principal fleets, describes major design developments among the main warship types, and examines wider technological and operational developments, including naval aviation, shipbuilding, and manning.

Navies in the 21st Century follows the successful approach and format of Seaforth’s annual World Naval Review, with individual sections by internationally acknowledged experts, and is heavily illustrated in a similar style. As a succinct, single-volume overview of how contemporary navies have evolved to meet today’s challenges it is unrivalled, and will prove invaluable to defense professionals and interested enthusiasts alike.

Praise
  • ‘Naval Books of the Year’. “Navies in the 21st Century provides a most useful contextual analysis of the post-Cold War period, explaining how technological developments and a range of world events have variously shaped the fleets of today.” —Warship
