Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This is the first of two volumes dealing with the history of the merchant ship in the 19th and 20th centuries, and it is the fifth volume in a projected set of 12 on the broader subject of the history of the ship. The introduction of steam into the merchant fleets of the world was a profound technical revolution; the various stages of technical development and the economic factors that drove that revolution are thoroughly and meticulously detailed. Abundantly illustrated (b&w). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
