This is the fourth, revised and updated, edition of Geoffrey Till's Seapower: A Guide for the Twenty-first Century.

The rise of the Chinese and other Asian navies, worsening quarrels over maritime jurisdiction and the United States’ maritime pivot towards the Asia-Pacific region reminds us that the sea has always been central to human development as a source of resources, and as a means of transportation, information-exchange and strategic dominion. It has provided the basis for mankind's prosperity and security, and this is even more true in the early twenty-first century, with the emergence of an increasingly globalised world trading system. Navies have always provided a way of policing, and sometimes exploiting, the system. In contemporary conditions, navies, and other forms of maritime power, are having to adapt, in order to exert the maximum power ashore in the company of others and to expand the range of their interests, activities and responsibilities. While these new tasks are developing fast, traditional ones still predominate. Deterrence remains the first duty of today’s navies, backed up by the need to ‘fight and win’ if necessary. How navies and their states balance these two imperatives will tell us a great deal about our future in this increasingly maritime century. This book investigates the consequences of all this for the developing nature, composition and functions of all the world's significant navies, and provides a guide for anyone interested in the changing and crucial role of seapower in the twenty-first century.

Seapower is essential reading for all students of naval power, maritime security and naval history, and highly recommended for students of strategic studies, international security and international relations.

The phrase ‘to support foreign policy’ makes the point that strategy, war and conflict should be designed to accomplish a political objective. This is what justifies strategic action and, as Clausewitz remarked, this is what determines a consequent
conflict’s form and character: War is nothing but a continuation of political endeavour with altered means. I base the whole of strategy on this tenet, and believe that he who refuses to
recognise this necessity does not fully understand what matters. The principle explains the whole history of war, and without it, everything would appear quite absurd.
Geoffrey Till
Sayfa 64 - On Types of theory
Sustainable system-defence in the twenty-first century depends on the maintenance of high levels of security for the peacekeepers themselves
Geoffrey Till
Sayfa 30 - Seapower in Globalised World
theory is often based on the processing of past experience, history, far from being simply ‘a record of exploded ideas’ should help us avoid repeating previous errors
Geoffrey Till
Sayfa 63 - Who said what and why it matters
... most classical maritime theorists (the likes of Mahan and Corbett, and their entourage) were, as we have seen, largely concerned with operations at sea between the developed fleets of traditional nation states
Geoffrey Till
Sayfa 104 - Who said what and why it matters
Small navies have often struggled amongst themselves for command of the sea, and large ones have been known to use flotillas of small ships to do the same on rivers, lakes, inland waters and coastal seas.
Geoffrey Till
Sayfa 173 - Command of the sea and sea control
The four aspirational deliverables are:
sea control
expeditionary operations
good order at sea
the maintenance of a maritime consensus.
