Indian Naval Strategy in the Twenty-First Century by James R. Holmes

Book Description

This is the first academic study of India's emerging maritime strategy, and offers a systematic analysis of the interplay between Western military thought and Indian maritime traditions. By a quirk of historical fate, Europe embarked on its Age of Discovery just as the main Asian powers were renouncing the sea, ushering in centuries of Western dominance. In the 21st century, however, Asian states are once again resuming a naval focus, with both China and India dedicating some of their new-found wealth to building powerful navies and coast guards, and drawing up maritime strategies to govern the use of these forces. The United States, like the British Empire before it, is attempting to manage these rising sea powers while preserving its maritime primacy. This book probes how India looks at the sea, what kind of strategy and seagoing forces New Delhi may craft in the coming years, and how Indian leaders may use these forces. It examines the material dimension, but its major premise is that navies represent a physical expression of a society's history, philosophical traditions, and culture. This book, then, ventures a comprehensive appraisal of Indian maritime strategy. This book will be of interest to students of sea power, strategic studies, Indian politics and Asian Studies in general. James R. Holmes is an Associate Professor of Strategy at the U.S. Naval War College and a former U.S. Navy surface warfare officer. Toshi Yoshihara is an Associate Professor in the Strategy and Policy Department at the Naval War College. Andrew C. Winner is Professor in the Strategic Research Department at the U.S. Naval War College.

Strategy in the Second Nuclear Age by James R. Holmes Strategy in the Second Nuclear Age, Paperback (October 2012)

Created by the expansion of nuclear arsenals and new proliferation in Asia, it has changed the familiar nuclear geometry of the Cold War. This volume assembles a group of scholars to grapple with the matter of how the United States, its allies, and its friends must size up the strategies, doctrines, and force structures.

Defending the Strait by James R. Holmes Defending the Strait, Paperback (April 2011)

This report argues that the Taiwan Navy is spreading itself too thin, dispersing scant resources among numerous missions and assets. Instead, the authors believe, Taiwan should be concentrating its budget and its intellectual energies on sea denial, the strategy best suited for guarding the country from invasion.
