Long acknowledged as the most comprehensive and authoritative book in its field, The Business of Shipping describes and analyzes the shipping business as it exists today. It will be useful to professionals who are currently specialists in one branch of the business, but only marginally knowledgeable about its other aspects. It will also familiarize transportation students and newcomers to the industry with the many facets of the shipping enterprise and the international movement of cargo. It can serve as the basic volume for any course in marine transportation. The topics covered include the significance of marine transportation; government involvement in regulating the industry; tramp shipping; liner service; the passenger cruise business; vessel management; cargo documentation; shoreside activities, such as terminal operations, ship husbandry, and bunkering procedures; and the actual functioning of the many segments of a shipping company operation. The book's scope is broader and more attuned to the working of the industry than most other books on marine transportation. While a good deal of the material from the sixth edition has been retained, new and up-to-date information has been added to reflect the many recent developments in the industry.

Shipping is by far the most significant mode of transportation for the carriage of freight. In terms of volume alone, no other mode comes close. Its dominance is even more overwhelming when distances are accounted for. This book is concerned with the economics of this pivotal mode of transportation. It reveals that the influences on the development and current state of shipping economics research are extremely eclectic. The various chapters in the book represent areas that are of central concern to ongoing research in the field. As such, the book is useful to students, researchers, industrialists, policy makers and consultants. The authors of the contributed chapters are some of the leading names in the world of shipping economics, addressing a number of diverse areas: The econometric modeling of shipping markets; Shipping finance (a critical issue in such a capital intensive industry); Fiscal policy (and its impact on an international industry with great asset mobility) and Safety and security (aspects that have risen to prominence with increasing concerns over the environment and international terrorism). Ultimately, while shipping as a business depends upon trade, it is absolutely certain that the business of trade depends upon shipping. The final two chapters, therefore, incorporate aspects of network economics, welfare economics and international trade theory to analyze where and how shipping sits within the wider perspective of industrial supply chains. Professor Kevin Cullinane, BA BSc MSc PhD FCILT CNI Professor Kevin Cullinane is Chair in Marine Transport and Management at the University of Newcastle in the U.K. He was previously Professor and Head of the Department of Shipping and Transport Logistics at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Head of the Centre for International Shipping and Transport at Plymouth University, Senior Partner in his own transport consultancy company and Research Fellow at the University of Oxford Transport Studies Unit.

Yvon Chouinard ist Unternehmer wider Willen. Eigentlich wollte er nur Klettern und Surfen – und trotzdem baute er ein Multimillionen-Dollar-Unternehmen auf. In seiner Jugend verbrachte er viel Zeit in der Natur und ließ sich von seinem Vater das Schmiedehandwerk beibringen. Als begeisterter Kletterer entwickelte und verkaufte er sein eigenes Equipment, dessen Design sich bis heute kaum verändert hat. Nach und nach erweiterte er die Palette seines Angebots, wobei er und seine Mitarbeiter keine besondere Strategie verfolgten: Jeder tat, was nötig war – und worauf er Lust hatte. Aus dieser Mentalität entstand im Lauf der Zeit das erfolgreiche Unternehmen Patagonia. In dieser neu überarbeiteten Auflage zum 10-jährigen Jubiläum der Originalausgabe zeigt Yvon Chouinard – legendärer Kletterer, Geschäftsmann, Umweltschützer und Gründer von Patagonia, Inc. – wie seine eigene Lebensphilosophie zum erfolgreichen Unternehmensleitbild wurde und was Patagonia zu einem der am meisten respektierten und umweltbewussten Unternehmen der Erde machte. Lass die Mitarbeiter surfen gehen ist ein Buch, das sowohl für Unternehmer als auch Outdoor-Enthusiasten gleichermaßen beeindruckend ist.

Behandeln Sie kleine emotionale Verletzungen, bevor sie zu großen Wunden werden. Auf ein aufgeschlagenes Knie kleben wir ein Pflaster. Was aber unternehmen wir, um die seelischen Verletzungen zu behandeln, die wir im Alltag erleiden? Oft fehlen uns dafür wirksame Mittel. Gleich zum Therapeuten zu gehen ist nicht immer sinnvoll, denn viele seelische Verletzungen sind nicht so schwer, dass sie professionelle Hilfe erfordern. Vergleichbar einem Medizinschränkchen mit Verbandszeug, Salben und Schmerzmitteln für die Grundversorgung körperlicher Alltagsverletzungen möchte dieses Buch eine Hausapotheke für die kleineren seelischen Verletzungen sein, die wir uns im täglichen Leben holen. Guy Winch führt Sie Schritt für Schritt in die Behandlung der häufigsten psychischen Verwundungen ein: Zurückweisung, Einsamkeit, Verlust, Schuldgefühle, Grübeln, Scheitern und ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl – hier lernen Sie, wie Sie mit emotionalen Wunden wirksam umgehen und so zu mehr Resilienz und Selbstvertrauen finden. »So sollte Selbsthilfe sein – effektiv und heilsam. In Emotionale Erste Hilfe findet jeder Techniken zur Selbstfürsorge für die eigene seelische Hausapotheke.« – Meg Selig, Psychology Today

Was würden Sie tun, wenn Sie das Gefühl haben, dass Ihr Chef Sie gern loswerden möchte, in Ihrem Unternehmen aber leider die übliche Form der Entlassung nicht die Kündigung, sondern die Ermordung ist? Halten Sie es für besonders klug, einem Mafioso, der für seine Brutalität bekannt ist, ein Paket mit faulen Anleihen anzudrehen? Oder Ihrer Frau auszuplaudern, wer alles bei der Cosa Nostra nach Ihrer Pfeife tanzt, um Eindruck zu schinden? Federico Varese berichtet in seinem spannenden Buch vom Leben und Sterben der Mafiosi, das er so nah und privat erkundet hat wie kaum jemand vor ihm. Die Mafia ist eine verschlossene Welt voller Gewalt und Härte, in die kein Außenstehender je Einblick bekommt. Hinter den Mauern des Schweigens aber gibt es eine Gemeinschaft mit eigenen Regeln und Werten – und es gibt das Mafia-Leben. Federico Varese hat sich tief ins Herz des organisierten Verbrechens gewagt und kennt Gangster in Italien, Russland, Hongkong und Japan. Sein Buch gibt einen intimen Einblick in die Lebensweise der Mafiosi: die bizarren Rituale und schmutzigen Geschäfte, das Familienleben und den beruflichen Stress, das Sexualleben und die unerfreulichen Todesarten jener Männer, die zu den gefährlichsten Menschen der Welt gehören.
