This essay examines the discipline of port history - primarily British - to discuss what has been achieved and what further studies might contribute. It places the work of Gordon Jackson into context, and deems his works integral to the field. Port philosophy, progress, future achievements, financial crises, and a case study of the development of the Port of Liverpool, are scrutinised by the author, Adrian Jarvis, in order to conclude that the study of port history, whilst a thoroughly researched discipline in its own right, ought now to focus on integrating with maritime history and wider contexts in order to move forward.

Keywords:   Port of Liverpool, Maritime Merseyside, Mersey Docks and Harbour Board, Port Management, British Shipping, Port Historians
