Descripción

"177 Pages. Each volume in this new series is a collection of seminal articles on a theme of central importance in the study of transport history, selected from the leading journal in the field. Each contains between ten and a dozen articles selected by a distinguished scholar, as well as an authoritative new introduction by the volume editor. Individually they will form an essential foundation to the study of the history of a mode of transport; together they will make an incomparable library of the best modern research in the field. This is the first academic volume wholly devoted to the history of British coastal and short-sea shipping since Willan?s seminal work of 1938. It gathers together eleven of the most important articles published in The Journal of Transport History over the last 25 years on the coastal trade of the United Kingdom, together with an introduction by the journal?s editor. Each of the articles was seminal when it appeared and has not lost its importance since, marking an important step in our understanding of the economic history of the coastal and short-sea trades. The introduction, by John Armstrong, traces the present state of our knowledge on the role of coastal trade in the development of the British economy and contextualises each of the essays. The book starts to make good the relative neglect of this sector of the economy by historians and demonstrates the important part coastal shipping played. Contents: Introduction; Trade and Shipping in the Port of London: Wiggins Key in the later-17th Century, John Chartres; Wages Prices and Profitability in the Shipping Industry during the Napoleonic Wars: A Case Study, Simon Ville; Charles Wye Williams and Irish Shipping, Freda Harcourt; The Contribution of Cross-Channel and Coastal Vessels to Developments in Marine Practice, J Graeme Bruce; Some Aspects of Passenger Traffic between Britain and Ireland, 1820-1850, H S Irvine; Some Aspects of the Coastal Shipping Trade: The Aberdeen Steam Navigation Company, 1835-80, Clive H Lee; The Development of Shipping Services to the East Coast of Sutherland, P T Wheeler; Freight Pricing Policy in Coastal Liner Companies before the First World War, John Armstrong; The Copper Ore Trade of South-West England in the 19th Century, P H Stanier; The Role of Coastal Shipping in UK Transport: an Estimate of Comparative Traffic Movements in 1910, John Armstrong; The Eclipse of British Coastal Shipping, Derek H Aldcroft."
