Our pleasure in publishing John Hattendorf's Newport Paper on maritime strategy arises from several sources. The Naval War College Press is pleased to republish and make more broadly available an essay that had become a standard reference work for those few fortunate enough to be both cleared for and fascinated by the evolution of postwar American strategy. This edition reproduces the Hattendorf analysis as it was first presented and published in 1989. The new elements the now declassified NIE, the comprehensive updating by Peter Swartz of his earlier bibliographies, and the selective time line created by Yuri Zhukov under Hattendorf's direction only enhance Hattendorf's original analytic core.
