Sea power is benign power: the international case for a maritime posture
The RUSI Journal
Taylor & Francis (Routledge)
While it is a truism that British security and prosperity have their foundation in maritime power, this has not translated into a conceptualisation of sea power that can be of practical use to policy-makers and practitioners. David Blagden applies two crucial concepts in security studies to the UK’s contemporary situation and argues that a maritime grand strategy based on offshore balancing will serve the country well in the future.
