A Century of Tankers

In the hundred years that they have been around tankers have been both the hero and the villain of their own story. Without tankers, the modern world would not function, yet the public perception of oil shipping has swayed from admiration to intolerance. Starting with the US oil boom in the 1860s, ‘A Century of Tankers’ tells the remarkable story of the rise of tanker shipping, its pivotal role in the world today, and its fall from grace in recent decades. It also provides an enthralling political and economic backdrop to the development of one humankind’s most remarkable technological achievements.
