For those interested in the rise and maintenance of the maritime trading system which the US continues to lead, I recommend Walter Russell Mead's God and Gold: Britain, America, and the Making of the Modern World. In addition to political recommendations Mead attempts to sketch the Abrahamic "Go Forth" and the British Anglican synthesis of tradition, order, and innovation.
