The book analyses the evolution of navies of South Asian states. Though all of them can trace their root to the British naval policy in the sub-continent, they have, over the period, responded in different ways to the naval and maritime challenges, in the context of their national requirements as well as changing regional and international environment. The book also projects the policies of the respective navies in the near future.
