    Published in the Military Histories series, this study of decision-making and policy-making in the British Admiralty spans the period from Trafalgar to the aftermath of Jutland. Hamilton explores the roles of technological change, the global balance of power, finance and the First World War in shaping decision-making and organizational development; and he shows how decision-making went from the hands of individuals, to groups, committees and finally to the permanent Naval Staff and Civil Service Secretariat.
