Policing the Seas

Mark C. Hunter

Liverpool University Press

This chapter outlines the structure of the journal, the topics to be discussed, and the critical approaches utilised for analysis. It introduces each nation’s key objectives: the use of naval diplomacy and power to avoid conflict; the suppression of piracy through co-operation force; and the advance of their economic powers. It also outlines their clashing objectives surrounding the slave trade - Britain’s goal of suppressing the slave trade for economic gain and America’s reluctance to address the topic. It introduces the concept of naval relation studies, interest-based naval analysis, and the comparative methodologies used in the analysis. It also introduces the sources consulted in the following chapters - primarily American and British newspapers, policy documents, naval documents, and naval and economic statistics. It concludes by summarising each chapter’s aims.

Keywords:   Naval Diplomacy, Naval Statistics, American Diplomacy, British Diplomacy, Naval Policy-Making
