    DescriptionThis book is a survey of the various attempts to control the Mediterranean from the Bronze Age to the fall of the Roman Empire. Starr demonstrates that control of the seas was not always a strategic necessity in the ancient world. His theory is an important corrective to the influential teachings of the strategist Alfred Thayer Mahan.

    Review quote
    The author's detailed and fascinating descriptions of major naval battles takes a new look at the significant role ships played in the course of history ... absorbing book.'

Rhodes, Greece & Rome, Vol XXXVII No 1 Apr '90 'The narrative is fast moving, lucid, and documented by references to the major studies.' Lionel Casson, New York University, American Historical Review
