Historical Dictionary of the U.S. Maritime Industry, Hardback Book

Historical Dictionary of the U.S. Maritime Industry Hardback

Part of the Historical Dictionaries of Professions and Industries series

Description

In the Historical Dictionary of the U.S. Maritime Industry, author Kenneth J. Blume provides a convenient survey of this important industry from the colonial period to the present day: from sail to steam to nuclear power.

This concise new reference work captures the key features of overseas, coastal, lake, and river shipping and industry.

An introduction provides an overview of the industry while the dictionary itself contains more than four hundred cross-referenced entries on ships, shipping companies, famous personalities, and major ports.

A number of appendixes, including statistics on foreign trade, maritime disasters, famous ships, and major ports, supplement the dictionary, and a comprehensive bibliography leads the researcher to further sources.
