Abstract : Better understanding of the requirements of neutrality and the dangers of unneutral U.S. policy can improve responsiveness and mission effectiveness in some critical situations and provide information to decision makers to facilitate the safe and effective employment of naval forces as an instrument of U.S. policy. To this end arose the desire to explore issues of international law affecting operations of the U.S. Navy at sea, which in turn resulted in this book.
