Japanese shipping and shipbuilding in the twentieth century : the writings of Peter N. Davies by Peter N Davies( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Britainʹs foremost scholar of the international shipping industry, based at the Centre for Port and Maritime History, University of Liverpool, here examines the growth and development of Japanʹs modern shipping and shipbuilding industries across a wide range of topics, through the pre-war, Pacific War and post-war periods, to the transfer of shipping technology, the role of bulk carriers and world trade and the organization and structure of the Japanese merchant navy. Prompted originally by his research into the decline of the British industries in a global context, his focus inevitably turned to Japan which in the post-war years had replaced Britain as the worldʹs largest ship operators and ship owners and remains so today
