‘Neatly illustrated and meticulously researched... a reference work of uniformly high academic quality’ - Times Literary Supplement

The most comprehensive and authoritative reference book of its kind, The Oxford Companion to Ships and the Sea is a completely revised and updated edition of a classic volume that was first published in 1976 to huge acclaim. It covers every aspect of the seas and the vessels that sail on them, from shipbuilding, yachting, diving, and marine mammals, to tidal power, piracy, and the literature and language of the sea. The second edition provides new material on topics such as oceanography and marine archaeology; also included are up-to-the-minute articles on underwater vehicles, tsunamis, warfare at sea, marine pollution, the Economic Exclusion Zone, and ship preservation.

Book.  2724 pages.  427404 words.  Illustrated.
