Abstract:

Even as airlines provide faster means of travel, ships and boats remain as important as ever in transporting passengers and cargo across the world's bodies of water. While ship design has become increasingly sophisticated with time, everything including the luxury liners, warships, and sailboats of today owe much to the watercraft that facilitated travel, trade, and war among ancient cultures. This detailed volume examines the development of the different types of water vehicles and the design of related structures, including docks and quays.
