Presents a fresh examination of Palmerstonian diplomacy during the pivotal decade of the 1860s, the evolution of the modern capital ship and the real nature of 'empire', 'technology' and 'seapower'. In contrast to the standard image of the mid-Victorian Royal Navy as all-powerful, the author shows how it suffered serious challenges in this period.
