Armaments & Arbitration

The Place of Force in the International Relations of States by Alfred Thayer Mahan SOLD OUT

$74.95

A collection of influential essays, some originally published in The North American Review from 1911 to 1912, offer an examination of the factors involved in the use of force vs. the use of law in international disputes. Mahan argues “that neither arbitration in the more specific form of judicial decision based upon a code of law, can always take the place, either practically or beneficially, of the processes and results obtained by the free play of natural forces” (Preface). With particular attention to maritime forces and navies, he also discusses the role of sea power in the Pacific, the Panama Canal, the Naval War College, and questions whether Panama was “a chapter of national dishonor.”
