"I cannot rate this book too highly. It is of the highest quality, combining accuracy with sustained analytical rigor. It will be welcomed by all naval historians as providing a reassessment of the 19th-century Royal Navy and a reconsideration of the basic issues of British diplomacy in that period. It will remain a standard work for years to come."--Andrew Lambert, University of London
