Many works on naval history ascribe success to the special qualities of individual leaders, Nelson being the prime example. This book in contrast moves away from focusing on Nelson and other leading individuals to explore more fully how naval leadership worked in the context of a large, complex, globally-capable institution. It puts forward important original scholarship around four main themes: the place of the hero in naval leadership- organisational friction in matters of command- the role of management capability in the exercise of naval power- and the evolution of management and technical training in the Royal Navy.

Besides providing much new, interesting material for naval and maritime historians, the book also offers important insights for management and leadership specialists more generally. HELEN DOE is a Fellow of the Centre for Maritime Historical Studies, University of Exeter and author of nterprising Women and Shipping (Boydell, 2009).

RICHARD HARDING is Professor of Organisational History at the University of Westminster, Chairman of the Society for Nautical Research and author of The Emergence of Britains Global Naval Supremacy (Boydell, 2010), Amphibious Warfare in the Eighteenth Century (Royal Historical Society, 1991) and six other books.
