Navies in Northern Waters is a collection of articles covering the
roles played by the secondary navies of northern European powers
and the United States within the maritime balance of power. The
contributions covering the 18th and 19th centuries focus on their
relations with each other as they sought to create a counterweight
to the dominant naval power of Britain.
The inter-war years are treated from the perspectives of
international disarmament efforts within the framework of
collective security, and the subsequent naval rivalry in the Baltic
area in the years leading up to the Second World War. For the
post-1945 period, the contributions concentrate on superpower
rivalry in northern waters during the Cold War, the changing
aspects of security policy since the collapse of the Soviet Union
and the particular challenges facing small coastal states policing
extensive waters of increasing economic importance.
