Making Global and Local Connections: Historical Perspectives on Ports

Tapio Bergholm, Lewis R. Fischer, and M. Elisabetta Tonizzi


This book provides a series of case studies concerning ports and port communities from around the world, in attempt to determine the impact of globalisation on the port industry and the link between local and global port conditions. It also presents the case for the absolute necessity of ports and port systems to trade and industry on a global scale. The book is comprised of ten essays, the first six of which concern local issues in a rapid globalising industry. The second section contains the remaining four essays, which consider port systems from national perspectives.

Keywords: Port Authorities, Containerisation, Modern Ports, Early Modern Ports, Globalisation, European Ports, Asian Ports, Australian Ports, International Shipping, Port Competition
