Dealer Notes
Clarke's magnum opus, a heavyweight economic, social and technical history of what was once the second most important ship-building area in Britain. The rise, success, and decline of this great industry (including its ramifications such as engine-building) is covered in great detail by a local man who has devoted 40 years to the study of the subject.
