New Street Nautical Audio - a Division of New Street Communications, LLC - is proud to announce release of the Dynasties audio edition narrated by Kitty Hendrix.
Dynasties of the Sea offers a vivid and fascinating look at one of the most powerful forces in global trade and economic development:
Operating from Monaco to Hong Kong, London to Athens, Singapore to Oslo, shipowners and their financiers have changed the world in every way.
From transporting agricultural products from Brazil to Africa and the Middle East, to delivering Australian iron ore to China, to carrying Middle East crude oil to Asia and the Americas, to carrying almost every article of clothing you are wearing and every electronic device in the world, shipowners have enabled global economic development and helped raise the global standard of living.
While ocean shipping remains one of the most important businesses in the world, it is also one of the most volatile. Affected by such imponderables as weather and political upheaval, shipowning cultures have maintained their commitment to an industry that has endured for centuries - and will continue to endure for centuries to come.
Profiles in the book include Jim Tisch, Loews Corporation;
The candid and detailed first-person profiles comprising Dynasties of the Sea provide critical insight into the psychology of today's generation of shipping owners and financiers, from how they view every risk - politically, economically and environ-mentally - to what they see transpiring in the world tomorrow.
