A new naval history

A New Naval History brings together the most significant and interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary naval history. The last few decades have witnessed a transformation in how this topic is researched and understood, and this volume captures the state of a field that continues to develop apace. It examines – through the prism of naval affairs – issues of nationhood and imperialism; the legacy of Nelson; the sociocultural realities of life in ships and naval bases; and the processes of commemoration, journalism and stage-managed pageantry that plotted the interrelationship of ship and shore. This bold and original publication will be essential for undergraduate and postgraduate students of naval and maritime history. Beyond that, though, it marks an important intervention into wider historiographies that will be read by scholars from across the spectrum of social history, cultural studies and the analysis of national identity.

‘This volume may be a landmark in the evolution of the field …a carefully selected cross-section of the latest high grade academic research in the field of naval history, a description that the editors have stretched far beyond the old limits of ships, battles and sailors.'
Professor Andrew Lambert, King's College, London

‘This first-class collection of essays follows the path of important works such as The Great Naval Game by Jan Rüger, editor of the foreword of the volume and whose research and insights reverberate through many of the mentioned contributions. All chapters cover a wide range of topics and make use of innovative approaches that might well be fruitfully applied to the study of cases beyond Britain. Overall, this book is an excellent addition to academic literature and an important contribution for scholars working in naval history and adjacent fields of research.
