In diesem auf Deutsch bislang unveröffentlichten Buch untersucht Norbert Elias die Laufbahn von Marineoffizieren im England des 17. Jahrhunderts und legt die Gründe für die Entstehung dieses neuen Berufes dar. Die Mannschaft der Kriegsschiffe bestand lange Zeit aus gentlemen soldiers, die das Kriegshandwerk beherrschten, und den Schiffsleuten, den Tarpaulins, die wussten, wie guy ein Schiff segelt und manövriert. Aus der Kooperation und der Konkurrenz dieser beiden Gruppen mit sehr unterschiedlicher sozialer Herkunft, entstand schließlich der Beruf des Marinesoldaten und eine Hierarchie von Marineämtern, die Funktion und Methoden der Ausbildung beider Gruppen miteinander verband. Zusätzlich zeigt ein kurzer Vergleich mit der Frühphase der Entwicklung des Marineberufes in Frankreich und Spanien die Wechselwirkungen, die zwischen einigen Merkmalen der jeweiligen Marineberufe und den Ländern, zu denen sie gehören, bestanden.
