Description: THE GOLDEN AGE OF SHIPPING deals with the merchant ship in the first half of the 20th century, a period in which a variety of specialized ships developed recognizable characteristics that were not to change radically until the shiphandling innovations of the 1960s - as analyzed in THE SHIPPING REVOLUTION volume in this series.
THE GOLDEN AGE OF SHIPPING is the ninth in an ambitious program of twelve volumes intended to provide the first detailed and comprehensive account of a technology that has shaped human history. It has been conceived as a basic reference work, the essential first stop for anyone seeking information on any aspect of the 'Golden Years' of shipping between 1900-1960. Lavishly illustrated, it includes over 200 black-and-white photos.
