Published in 1999, this work is mainly related to ferry services and operations in a number of marketplaces in Europe. Ferry services in the the Atlantic Arc to the West, the Baltic Sea to the North and the Eastern Mediterranean to the Southeast of Europe are reviewed. Ferry markets in the Baltic area and the Mediterranean have been crucial markets in particular becaus of their continuing development - mostly after the post-communism changes in the East European countries and the civil war in the former Yugoslavia. Developments in the Atlantic Arc and the effects of the Channel Tunnel on the ferry market in that area are also explained and conclusions and comment offered.
