Maritime History as Global History

This chapter discusses the trade relationship between the Norwegian merchant shipping fleet and Asian maritime freight markets between 1870 and 1914. In tracking the rise of the Norwegian fleet from regional to global in scope, and how Norwegian agents established and increased trade networks overseas, it provides a case study of the growth of economic globalisation. It draws on shipping statistics, consular reports, and observations from contemporary shipping press to quantify the rate of expansion and attitudes towards it, and concludes that Norway managed to secure strong trade links in Asian markets and held back competition from large western nations, though it calls for further academic research to establish how this was achieved with more precision.
