Summary
"This study examines how intellectual and institutional developments transformed the U.S. Navy from 1873 to 1898. The agents of naval transformation embraced a progressive ideology. They viewed science, technology, and expertise as the best means to effect change in a world contorted by modernizing and globalizing trends. Two new cultures--Strategy and Mechanism--influenced the course of transformation."--Provided by publisher
