THE SHIP is a unique series of ten books about development of merchant vessels and specialized vessels of war, from the earliest times to the present day. Each book is a self-contained study by a leading authority on one aspect of the whole subject, dealt with in realistic terms that are detailed, accurate and up-to-date.
Each breaks new ground, incorporates the latest available information, summarizes the most recent thinking and is illustrated where possible from contemporary sources.
Comissioned and produced jointly by the National Maritime Museum, whose Director, Basil Greenhill, is the series General Editor, and by HMSO, the ten books represent the most authoritative short history of the ship ever published.

In 'Steam Tramps and Cargo Liners', Book 5 the series, RObin Craig has produced the first serious study of the development of the cargo steamship in the years c.1850-1950, a subject so far practically ignored by historians. In it he reveals the substantial part this development played in establishing, Britain's economic and political ascendancy at this period. He disposes of the myth of the long battle between sail and steam and shows that it reality it was not until the 1880s that steamships really began to compete with sailing vessels in general world trade. This is a new and original study which at last puts in its proper context one of the gratest industrial achievements of the 19th century.
