Описание: This book is a compression of 6,000 years of the history of the ship from tree trunk dug-out to nuclear liner - a story which resembles a family tree with innumerable branches, becoming most numerous during the years from the early nineteenth century. This book cannot hope to describe the multiplicity of ship types that were built in step with technological development. The aim has been to describe a cross-section of passenger liners, cruise liners, and cargo carriers.
