About the Authors
  • This volume, first published in 1960, offers a description, in non-technical language, of the state of the British shipbuilding industry, its prospects, and how it stood in relation to its competitors by the middle of the twentieth century. The topics Mr Parkinson discusses are the growth of the industry, its organisation, the demand for ships, and the supply. The last subject touches on such questions as technical change, industrial organisation, labour and competition.
