Reseña del editor:
The ship is probably the most influential tool in human history and it continues to exert a widespread and persistent fascination. CONWAY'S HISTORY OF THE SHIP is the first comprehensive and authoritative account of this technological and cultural phenomenon.
An unprecedented line-up of over one hundred leading maritime historians and specialists from around the world has been assembled to ensure that the work is informative, authoritative and fully international in outlook.
Every significant ship type from the dawn of seafaring to the present day is analyzed in detailed and coherent essays. Each volume adopts a strong theme which allows it to stand alone, but throughout the series.
