Comment: Soft cover; Very Good; No Dust Jacket; "From its eighteenth-century roots in exploration and trade, to the major conflicts of the First and Second World Wars, through to current roles in multinational operations with United Nations and NATO forces, Canada's navy - now celebrating its one hundredth anniversary - has been an expression of Canadian nationhood and a catalyst in the complex process of national unity.In the second edition of Canada's Navy, Marc Milner brings his classic work up to date and looks back at one hundred years of the Navy in Canada. With supplementary photos, updated sources, a new preface and epilogue, and an additional chapter on the Navy's global reach from 1991 to 2010, this edition carries Canadian Naval history into the twenty-first century. Milner brings effortless prose and exacting attention to detail to his comprehensive and accessible examination of this fascinating Canadian organization. This much-needed update of Canada's Navy will continue to provoke discussion about the past and future of the country's naval forces and their evolving role in the interwoven issues of maritime politics and economics, defence and strategy, and national and foreign policy.

Editorial Reviews

Review

'Milner's book ... will serve for many as the navy's "official history." ' (John D. Harbron, Globe and Mail)

'Marc Milner is one of the soundest counsels in Canadian military history.' (Roger Marsters, Atlantic Books Today)

'This welcome new book is stimulating, authoritative, and current. Canada's Navy: The First Century is a great read.' (Jan Drent, Maritime Affairs)

'A delightful tour de force.' (Ron Lowman, Toronto Star)

'[Canada's Navy] will long remain the standard account of how the Canadian navy was created, developed, and used ... Marked by breadth of learning, masterly analysis, and a generous scholarship, it is a model and an inspiration. Canadians, and naval historians around the world, are once again in Milner's debt.' (Andrew Lambert, The International History Review)

'This book, like the first edition, provides an outstanding narrative of the history of the Canadian Navy, and should hold a place of honour on every naval officer?s bookshelf.' (Jurgen Duewel, Canadian Military Journal, vol10:03:2010)

'A focused and consolidated history, Milner has achieved a great accomplishment with this much-needed addition and upgrade to the history of the Canadian Navy.' (Todd Jerry, H-Canada, September 2010)

‘Milner’s book is an essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the broader question of Canadian defense politics… He has opened up the door for a much more sophisticated and nuanced understanding of the nexus of Canadian politics, national interest, and sea power.’

(Rob Huebert War in History vol 20:02:2013)
