NEWPORT, R.I. -- Naval and maritime history is reexamined in a series of twelve articles edited and published recently by the U.S. Naval War College (NWC) Press.
“New Interpretations in Naval History: Selected Papers from the Sixteenth Naval History Symposium,” is a new look into a dozen different maritime subjects including Colonial American Resistance to British Naval Impressment; The Early Years of Navy and Marine Corps Aviation, Publicity and the Marine Corps between 1911-1917; and the story of Support Activity Saigon, 1964-1966.
These and the other remaining papers were presented at the Naval History Symposium held at the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Sept. 10-11, 2009. The book was edited for the Naval War College Press by USNA Professors Craig C. Felker and Marcus O. Jones, who were the symposium organizers.
“The U.S. Naval Academy’s Naval History Symposium, held regularly in Annapolis, Maryland, since 1971, continues to be one of the most important events for the scholarly exchange of ideas on naval history,” wrote NWC’s Ernest J. King Professor of Maritime History John B. Hattendorf in the book’s introduction. “These essays embody the spirit and scholarly expertise of that conference.”
The book is #20 in the NWC Press Historical Monograph series, published in support of NWC’s Maritime History Department.
