The article presents information on articles and topics discussed in this issue of the journal "U.S. Naval Institute Proceedings." Eric Wertheim's authoritative annual review of the world's navies shows that the United States is not alone in trying to balance competing requirements for its fleet. Norman Polmar, distinguished Proceedings columnist and Naval Institute Press author, scores a hat trick in this issue with three stories related to the Navy's decision some years back to field an all-nuclear submarine force.
