The newly released book The Business of Shipping (2018, 9th edition), written by SUNY Maritime College Professor Ira Breskin, is a timely and comprehensive analysis of a dynamic industry that enables global markets. 

The book examines the outsized success of the cruise industry, what it means “to go green” on the world’s seas, and provides a historic context to help better predict the shipping industry’s future. 

Written for seasoned professionals, maritime consultants who need to anticipate trends, as well as newcomers to domestic and international shipping, The Business of Shipping offers a comprehensive update of maritime economics, operations, policy and regulation. 

Rear Admiral M. Richard Larrabee (USCG, Ret.), former Port Director, Port Commerce Department, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, called the book “the place to go to start shipping industry research.”  

The new, 2018 edition of The Business of Shipping provides critical reference material for decision-makers.  An expanded glossary, index, and end notes, as well as more than two dozen new photographs, illustrate operating concepts that define this international industry. 

A must-read for anyone at work in the shipping business today, this new and up-dated edition of a classic reference is available on Amazon here in a Kindle edition ($39.99), and hardcover ($48.40), or at Schiffer Publishing ($55).
