Oceanographers and the Cold War
summary
This book examines the study of the oceans during the Cold War era and explores the international focus of American oceanographers, taking into account the role of the U.S. Navy, U.S. foreign policy, and scientists through the world. Hamblin demonstrates that to understand the history of American oceanography, one must consider its role in both conflict and cooperation with other nations. Scientists redefined the field of oceanography and turned it into one of the most well-funded, militarily decisive, and politically controversial activities in science.
