Description
This book is new (still in wrapper and box)
The Modern Merchant Ship.
Since the end of the Second World War the pattern of international trade - and the ships in which it is carried - has changed dramatically. Competition from air travel gradually displaced the liner but with increased leisure passenger ships staged a comeback in the form of cruise ships. The burgeoning demand for oil fuel produced the supertanker, while moves to streamline cargo handling led to conainerisation and other forms of unitised shipment for many general trades. However, entirely new ship types were also developed to carry cargoes as diverse as cars and chemicals, livestock and nuclear waste. 208 pages H/B
