Monday, 19 May 2008 15:08

Publisher: Clarksons Research Services

From Baird Maritime:

These brilliant directories compiled by the research arm of the world’s largest and best known ship broking outfit are now available.

Clarksons Research Services never rests on its laurels. Every year these always excellent directories are improved at least slightly.

This year, 2008, is no exception. All the Registers have been thoroughly updated and extensively revised. They are accurate and incredibly useful. They even contain a very thought provoking market summary. Each is provided in print format with an easily manipulable CD Rom enclosed.

Better than ever.

Nimitz
Monday, 19 May 2008 15:08

Author: E.B. Potter
Publisher: Naval Institute Press

From Baird Maritime:

Without a doubt one of the best warrior biographies ever. This is a paperback reprint of a classic first published in 1976.

Admiral Chester Nimitz was seemingly born and thoroughly educated and trained for his role as America’s Commander in Chief Pacific during World War II – almost miraculously so.

A thorough gentlemen and a classic humanist, Nimitz is brilliantly brought to life by Professor Potter. While America’s success in the Pacific War was never seriously in doubt, there can be no argument that Nimitz was the most important cog in a mighty war machine.

America’s pre-war leaders were well aware for a long time that war with Japan was likely. This ensured that leaders in waiting, such as Nimitz, were extra-ordinarily well prepared. All this is clearly explained in the book as is Admiral Nimitz’ post war wind down.

An excellent text book of highly effective leadership, strategy and, above all, organisation. Nimitz was a rare genius and this fine work does him justice in a delightfully personal manner.

Sharks of the Open Ocean
Monday, 19 May 2008 15:08

Editors: Merry D. Camhi, Ellen K. Pikitch and Elizabeth A. Babcock

From Baird Maritime:

Another first rate title from Blackwell Publishing’s Fish and Aquatic Resources Series. These are good practical text books of value not only to marine biologists but to fishermen, fisheries managers, environmentalists and others.

A practical collection of high quality papers that concisely present a great deal of the present knowledge of sharks. This is an invaluable summary of a very important subject.

Highly recommended.
