about this item
The book is about Liverpool docks and the dockland area—its history, strategic importance in times of peace and war; the kinds of cargoes carried into the docks—including slaves! The book provides a complete timeline from the very earliest days right up to the modern time—a time when a new and even larger container dock is being built and the advent of the new cruise liner terminal—this terminal having been at the center of a political and economic argument between Southampton, Liverpool and the EU. The book also speculates as to the future of Liverpool docks, and also, to a lesser extent, the city itself.
