Zum Inhalt
Crisis, in the economic sense of significant market changes, are a frequent occurrence in modern times. In this volume, nine distinguished scholars examine the issues of crisis and response of North Sea maritime sectors in the context of the French wars, technological changes in the nineteenth century and the collapse of world trade in the "Great Slump" of 1929-32. Five further papers, set in the maritime field, reveal the exciting character of new research in such diverse fields as dendrochronological analysis, transport policy, fisheries labour supply, polar exploration and network studies of corporate relationships.
