Sea Power and the Control of Trade : Belligerent Rights from the Russian War to the Beira Patrol, 1854-1970 Hardback

Edited by Nicholas Tracy

Part of the Navy Records Society Publications series

Description

The ability to influence world events through control of seaborne trade was profoundly affected by 19th-century developments in economic theory, commercial organization and naval technology, and by the growing power of the United States.

In consequence the international law of belligerent rights at sea was repeatedly amended.

Naval strategy in four wars reflected these changes in technology, power and law, and the ongoing process continues to influence international use of economic sanctions.
