The classic Business of Shipping (now in its ninth edition) remains North America’s most comprehensive industry-focused book that explains and analyzes marine transportation and related industries, both domestic and international. This is an authoritative text that is required reading for a newcomer looking to understand basic shipping operations, regulations, and international cargo movement, or a specialized professional seeking insight into other industry segments. Revised and fully updated, the ninth edition reaffirms its status as the cornerstone text in marine transportation education.


 "A timely and comprehensive analysis of a dynamic industry that enables global markets...A must-read for anyone at work in the shipping business today" —The Maritime Executive
