From the PublisherSteven Brill
author of After
Don't think you want to read a book about shipping? Well, how about a Jules Verne-like tale of a journey across the world that begins two days after September 11 and makes issues like globalization, international trade, and port security come alive in a deeply personal, poignant narrative crafted by a truly gifted writer? You will be pulled along in the wake of the Colombo Bay. And you'll savor the trip.
James B. Stewart author of Heart of a Soldier
To the ranks of seafaring literature, we may gratefully add The Colombo Bay, an engrossing account by Richard Pollak of his global circumnavigation on a modern container ship. And to the traditional perils of sea crossings — piracy, tropical storms, running aground — we may now add global terrorism. Those who venture with Pollak on this remarkable journey will gain a new appreciation for the importance of the world's sea lanes, and the people and ships that populate them.
