Published in 1997. This text is the second in a series of volumes that comprise a collection of papers which have emerged from the Institute of Maritime Transport and Seaborne Trade at the University of Gdansk and the Institute of Marine Studies at the University of Plymouth. The former is the leading teaching and research institute in maritime business in Eastern Europe, the latter is the leading establishment in Western Europe.
