Abstract

International maritime law, through the proliferation of cooperative regimes, institutions, and rules formulated to meet the threats of maritime terrorism, piracy, and crime, is not simply responding to the needs of modern sea power but is fundamentally redefining it. The U.S. Navy has not yet caught up to the new state of affairs.

Keywords: seapower, international law, arms control, maritime security, naval, navy, maritime power, naval, expeditionary, great power, international relations
