By More Than Providence

“Michael Green’s magisterial study is a timely and insightful reminder of the deep and long-standing ties between East Asia and the United States, and the complex interplay between our economic and security interests, and our values, a dynamic which has shaped US policy for two and a half centuries. It is an indispensable point of reference for students and policy makers seeking to understand a critical region where history casts a long shadow, notwithstanding the extraordinary changes of recent years.” — James Steinberg, Syracuse University and former deputy secretary of state

  1. I look forward to reading “By More Than Providence” from Michael J. Green. I anticipate it will carry forward on the baseline established by AT Mahan in his brilliant “The Influence of Sea Power upon History, 1660–1783.”

    As an officer in the U.S. Navy, I sailed upon the waters in the Asian Pacific region many times over many years. Those strategic lines of commerce and communication are as vital in the 21st century as they were in the 18th; perhaps even more so. Thank you for making this important contribution toward a more complete understanding of sea power and commerce.
