Description: Shipping and port systems are vital to societies and lifestyles around the world. In the late twentieth century, however, assumptions concerning the robustness of these systems were severely shaken by economic shocks largely triggered by oil crises.
This volume explores the resolution of many of the consequent uncertainties, and how adapted systems have been shaped to meet the challenges of the new millennium, focusing particularly on three closely interrelated themes: globalisa- tion, technological change and the environment. Contributors examine subjects as diverse as:
• economic integration of emerging economies – in particular China
• the cruise tourism phenomenon and global integration
• new conceptual perspectives on port and shipping development
• technological drivers in the high-speed ferry and offshore oil industries
• pollution management challenges for shipping and ports.
