Policing the Seas

Mark C. Hunter

Liverpool University Press

This final chapter focuses on British and American naval responses to the outbreak of the American Civil War, particularly their efforts to contain their maritime disputes rather than let them spill into the fray. It gives significant attention to British policy-making regarding the Civil War, and traces the actions of parliament in the decision-making process that led to the evasion of the war. The latter half of the chapter brings the journal to an overall conclusion, reiterating the ability and necessity of sea power in maintaining peace during a period of peacetime fraught with anti-slavery and anti-piracy responsibilities.

Keywords:   American Civil War, Abraham Lincoln, Lord Palmerston, Gentlemanly Capitalism
