About This Item

This is a first edition of Command of the Sea: The History and Strategy of Maritime Empires, by the American naval warfare historian Clark G Reynolds (1939-2005).

From one review: "This is how the world works - as the Phoenicians transporting good across the Aegean, they brought ideas, religions, and parts of other societies with them...and all protected by the navies of those city-states with whom they traded. It worked then, it worked for the Brits, and it works for us now.
A must-read for everyone involved in international politics and international trade
."

This is a big thick book--642 pages.

This copy is in near-mint condition. Its only flaw is some yellowing to the dust jacket.

Otherwise perfect.

NOTE: The quoted delivery charge does NOT apply to this book--it's too heavy. If you'd like to buy it, please contact me with your location and I'll give you the proper price.
