This book of essays had its origin in a two and a half-day joint Yale-Naval War College conference held in New Haven, Connecticut, at the invitation of Professor Paul M. Kennedy. This conference was limited by time and resources to focussing on the naval and maritime history of only eight countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
