A valuable addition to the literature on naval warfare. * HISTORYOFWAR.ORG *
Provides a very useful service by addressing the intellectual origins of Britain's naval policy.. The argument is very carefully constructed and organised. * REVISTA UNIVERSITARIA DE HISTORIA MILITAR *
It is to be hoped that the themes raised here will attract further scholarly attention as they cast revealing light on the nature of Britain's imperial project, the workings of mercantilism, and the slow accumulation of the maritime capacity which could support the eventual emergence of Britain as the first naval power with a truly global reach. * ECONOMIC HISTORY REVIEW *
[This] concentrated study will certainly be valued by specialist historians. * MARINER'S MIRROR *
The author deserves credit for highlighting the economic basis of early eighteenth-century British interest in maritime and colonial warfare. * INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MARITIME HISTORY *
The book draws heavily on official British government records and political pamphlets from the early eighteenth century, and Satsuma casts a broad net for secondary sources, making this work a valuable primer for anyone looking to further study early modern British naval policy. * H-NET *
