"At the beginning of the new millennium, this book presents a retrospective look at developments in ships and shipping over the years of the twentieth century by drawing together all the events and achievements, the triumphs in design and seamanship, and the naval battles and marine disasters. Chapters are enhanced by literary extracts, biographies and special features to create a chronicle of life at sea during the twentieth century. All aspects of international shipping are covered -- both naval and commercial. The explosion of technological developments brought about by both world wars are dealt with in two separate chapters. Trade and merchant shipping witnessed dramatic changes, with the emergence of the supertanker, Large Crude Carriers, and more recently the container revolution. Passenger ships are discussed, from luxurious liners, to cruise ships and car ferries that act as people movers today. A chapter is devoted to sail, documenting the adventures and misfortunes of round-the-world yachtsmen and womenin races that test human endurance as much as yacht technology. With explo ration so much a part of maritime history, this book also examines the attempts to conquer the final frontier, describing the race to the poles." Foreword by Sir Robin Knox-Johnston; 1.

"Following the path first charted by 'The Mapmaker's Eye', in which Joan Dawson examines the development of early Nova Scotia through maps, 'The Mapmakers' Legacy' carries on, plotting the province's growth through the careful examination and analysis of maps from the nineteenth century. An exciting time in Nova Scotia's history, the nineteenth century saw the first serious attempts to gain knowledge of the entire province, its resources and its inhabitants. Early in the century, maps reflect the settlement that was still taking place, the roads being built to link the settlements , the increasingly sophisticated defenses under construction, and the attempts to identify the resources on which development would depend. In the second half of the century, the maps begin to change; suddenly, they depict the development of industries, the establishment of railways and shipping lines, and the growth of towns where enterprising manufacturers and merchants were setting up business.
