Launched in 2009, this annual has rapidly established a reputation as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months. It combines the standing features of regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments. Besides the latest warship projects, it also looks at wider issues of importance to navies, such as aviation and electronics, and calls on expertise from around the globe to give a balanced picture of what is going on and to interpret its significance. This year special features include in-depth studies of the navies of Brazil, Australia and Pakistan, plus analyses of three significant new warship classes: the USN’s advanced amphibious warfare ship Makin Island (LHD-8): Sweden’s futuristic Visby class stealth corvettes; and the BAE Systems offshore patrol vessels. Intended to make interesting reading as well as providing authoritative reference, there is a strong visual emphasis, including specially commissioned drawings and the most recently released photographs and artists’ impressions.

Now firmly established as an authoritative but affordable summary of all that has happened in the naval world in the previous twelve months, this annual combines regional surveys with one-off major articles on noteworthy new ships and other important developments.

Features of this edition include an analysis of the Republic of Korea Navy and the response to its aggressive northern neighbour. Significant Ships will cover the USN’s revamped Arleigh Burke class destroyer design, German F125 class frigates, and the RNZN’s Otago class offshore patrol vessels. There are also technological reviews dealing with naval aviation by David Hobbs, RN missile programmes by Richard Scott, while Norman Friedman turns his attention to new generation weapons technology.

This new and updated edition of Understanding Naval Warfare offers the reader an accessible introduction to the study of modern naval warfare, providing a thorough grounding in the vocabulary, concepts, issues, and debates, set within the context of relevant history. Navies operate in an environment that most people do not understand and that many avoid. They are equipped with a bewildering range of ships, craft and other vessels and types of equipment, the purpose of which is often unclear. Writings on naval warfare are usually replete with references to esoteric concepts explained in specialist language than can serve as a barrier to understanding. The objective of this book, therefore, is to cut through the obscure and the arcane to offer a clear, coherent and accessible guide to the key features of naval warfare which will equip the reader with the knowledge and understanding necessary for a sophisticated engagement with the subject. This second edition is divided into two key parts. The first focuses on concepts of naval warfare and introduces readers to the ideas associated with the theory and practice of naval operations. It also includes a new chapter in which the history of the last century of naval warfare is explored in order to illustrate the key concepts. The second part focuses on the conduct of war at sea and on peacetime roles for contemporary navies. This latter section concludes with a chapter that looks ahead to the likely future of naval warfare. This textbook will be essential reading for students of naval warfare, sea power and maritime security, and highly recommended for those studying military history, strategic studies and security studies in general.

Als James Cook 1769 zur ersten seiner drei großen Reisen aufbrach, war die Erde gerade einmal zu zwei Dritteln kartiert. Zehn Jahre später hatte Cook nicht nur auf dem Wasserweg die Welt entschleiert, sondern auch umfangreiche kulturelle und wissenschaftliche Studien vorgenommen, die das neuzeitliche Bild der Erde entscheidend prägten. Zwar ist viel über Cooks Leistungen bekannt, doch verstellten die Fakten bisher den ungeschönten Blick auf diese außergewöhnliche Figur. Tony Horwitz lenkt die Aufmerksamkeit des Betrachters nicht nur auf die dunklen Seiten des großen Forschers, sondern auch auf die zum Teil entsetzlichen Konsequenzen, die dessen Entdeckungen für einfache Kulturen nach sich zogen.

Ende 1939 entstand das »Experimental-Konstruktionsbüro« OKB MiG mit den beiden Flugzeugingenieuren Artjom I. Mikojan und Michail J. Gurewitsch. Damit begann eine einzigartige Firmengeschichte. MiG-Flugzeuge zählen seit Jahrzehnten zu den bekanntesten und leistungsfähigsten Militärflugzeugen der Welt und brachen eine ganze Reihe von Rekorden, sowohl durch ihre Flugleistung als auch mit ihren großen Produktionszahlen. Beginnend mit der MiG-1 aus dem Jahr 1939 bis zur MiG-35 des Jahres 2011 wird hier in bekannter Manier der weltberühmte Flugzeughersteller und seine Produkte vorgestellt. Auch zahlreiche, zum Teil wegweisende Prototypen, werden beschrieben.
