Naval War College Review

Ours is an age of revolution, and revolutions are unpredictable. What is certain about this phenomenon is that everything touched by it will be changed, Many uncertainties lie in the possible direction and magnitude of change, however, making any speculation about the nature of the Navy at the end of the l 970's a risky undertaking, Yet, there are clues to help us. Those that bear most heavily on our future Navy are the nature and condition of the U.S. domestic scene, the general world situation, and, of course1 the main rival to the U.S. Navy-the Navy of the Soviet Union.
