Navies and Soft Power: Historical Case Studies of Naval Power and the Nonuse of Military Force [open pdf - 11MB]
From the Document: "This book is the last in a series of seven collections of case studies over the past twelve years that have examined the institutional roles played by navies throughout history. The series has collected an impressive group of scholars who have examined a variety of topics from the history of blockades and commerce raiding, the role of navies in coalitions, and naval mutinies in the twentieth century. This final volume, edited by Bruce A. Elleman and S. C. M. Paine, expands the series to cover the use of navies as instruments of soft power, which includes a wide variety of missions."
