MEDIA REVIEWS
"Contributors to this volume offer interesting angles from which to understand the land-based effects of maritime history and economic globalisation. ... highlights the centrality of transportation and technological advances in the harnessing of the natural world and the development of a system of global capital. The collection is also useful to identify avenues for further research into social and cultural studies of the `Port Communities' identified in many of the chapters and to highlight an overlooked area in Atlantic History." (Melanie Bassett, The Journal of Transport History, Vol. 37 (1), 2016)
