The story is extremely complex, involving changes in the technology of ships and the impact of such change on the economic well-being of the Company; changes in the pattern of competition and the effect of this on the standard and level of service; the growing partnership between the Company and Government and the influence of international affairs on this relationship. [...] The author was given free access to the vast Cunard archives.” - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 90.00
