NEWPORT, R.I. -- The Naval War College Press
is pleased to present the Autumn 2010 issue of the Naval War College Review.
In this issue:
The Naval War College Review
was established in 1948 and is a forum for discussion of public policy matters of interest to the maritime services. The forthright and candid views of the authors are presented for the professional education of the readers. Articles published are related to the academic and professional activities of the Naval War College. They are drawn from a wide variety of sources in order to inform, stimulate, and challenge readers, and to serve as a catalyst for new ideas. Articles are selected primarily on the basis of their intellectual and literary merits, timeliness, and usefulness and interest to a wide readership. The thoughts and opinions expressed in this publication are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the U.S. Navy or the Naval War College.
Details from the “Black Ship scrolls,” created in Japan soon after the visits of Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry’s squadron in 1853 and 1854. Digitized copies of the original scrolls, on long-term loan from the Preservation Society of Newport County, Rhode Island, are on display at the Naval War College Museum. They appear in an attractive new exhibit space on the first floor produced by moving the Naval War College Foundation’s Museum Store to an expanded site in the Museum’s first-floor west wing. Shown are USS
Saratoga (upper left), USS
Powhatan (upper right), USS
Susquehanna (lower left), and USS
Lexington (lower right). See our “From the Editors” department in this issue for related, exciting developments at Founders Hall. Courtesy Naval War College Museum.
