This volume takes up the story with the commercial success of the steam turbine, but for reasons of completeness traces the late nineteenth-century origins of the first specialist types, like the tanker and the refrigerated cargo liner. Each of the main chapters is an in-depth history of a major category of ship, pin-pointing important vessels and designs, and backed with a data table summarizing the variety and evolution of each type. These are supported with shorter sections on more general topics that place ship design in the context of economic and technical developments that influenced all types.
The traditional cargo vessels and the great ocean liners, classic in their design and function, have all but disappeared, allowing The Golden Age of Shipping to tell the full story of an era which is now closed.
