The mastery of the Pacific by Archibald R Colquhoun( Book )

25 editions published between 1901 and 2015 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The writer of this book has long been a traveller in foreign lands and a student of foreign affairs, but more especially of the questions which find their focus in the Far East. Among the changes and shiftings of human activity which have taken place in the world's history, none have been more striking than those which are rapidly transforming the great ocean zone of the Pacific. Remoteness and isolation are becoming less and less possible over the face of the globe, as distance is annihilated by modern science, but the vast Pacific, until quite recent times, deserved the name bestowed on it by its earliest discoverer, and was free from the entanglements of modern politics. On its borders, however, great changes were taking place, young Powers were arising, and at the appointed time the barriers were cast down and the Pacific became an arena for the ambitious of the nations and a highway for international commerce. That the future of more than one Great Power will be decided in this arena, where will occur the great struggle of the twentieth century, was the conviction borne in on the writer by many events that cast their shadow before. He therefore determined to study for himself such portions of the ocean territories as had hitherto been un-visited by him and to renew his acquaintance with others."--Publisher's description
