Research papers and reports to create ‘A Thinking Navy, A Fighting Navy, An Australian Navy’
Edition One

When, at the turn of the nineteenth century, Mahan wrote voluminously and incomprehensibly (at times) on sea power, his purpose was to show that the lessons of sail remained relevant in the age of steam. At the dawn of a new age, Mahan saw the continuing relevance of sea power.

Similarly, the researchers who are presented in this small volume have understood the enduring complexity and the abiding ramification of the sea and sea power.

This is encouraging, especially since the authors published here range from serving navy officers, to students from the Australian National University who enjoyed a research internship at the Sea Power Centre - Australia.

I commend this volume, and I thank as I applaud the researchers who were sufficiently bold to explore new ideas, and to express those ideas on paper.
