Narrow Seas  Small Navies  and Fat Merchantmen

The naval world has been turned upside down and the United States is not prepared for it. According to Koburger, the growing importance of "narrow seas" and "lesser navies" has caused a major shift in the balance of sea power. Low intensity conflicts--insurgencies, terrorism, regional hostilities--are played out in landbound seas by smaller navies armed with ever increasingly potent munitions. Koburger examines the impact of these small navies on United States' maritime strategy. Past failures in narrow seas highlight the politico-military value of Koburger's volume.
