Overview

This book is an effort by two naval experts, one a retired Russian Naval officer, the other an American naval arms control analyst, to look at the future relationship of the world's two greatest navies following the end of the Cold War and the demise of the Soviet Union. For the first time in English, readers are provided with a detailed examination of the sweeping changes in the strategy, doctrine, operations and size of both the U.S. and Russian navies in the last few years. The often frightening naval confrontations of the Cold War era have declined dramatically (but not entirely). The first tentative steps are outlined. The book offers a series of specific proposals to expand the current level of cooperation between the U.S. and Russian navies and even envisions a strategic partnership in the long term.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Now that Russian and US space ships are getting cozy in orbit, a retired Russian naval officer and an American naval arms control analyst consider the prospects for similar cooperation between the seaborne versions. They demonstrate how the two navies have changed over the past five years in terms of strategy, doctrine, operations, and missions; and propose a series of measures to strengthen ties and address threats to the maritime environment in the volatile new multipolar world. Accessible to general readers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
