carriers the importance to domestic trade of the coastal seagoing
lines has been brought least to the attention of the general
public. World War II and its aftermath practically extinguished
this type of common carrier and the resulting crisis receives
careful consideration here. It is a case study.
An introductory chapter on the background of the crisis pre-
pares the average reader, and those following, though a bit
technical, discuss ably and scholarly phases of water rate differ-
ential, federal policy, the place of railroads and other competi-
tors, and postwar line operation.
There is included much statistical data which will be meaning-
ful especially to business groups and those interested in trans-
portation. Appendix B, "Evolution of Federal Government Con-
trol over Domestic Water Carrier Rates," is an excellent example
of the writer's ability to combine, condense, and present data
in an effective manner.
This publication should benefit Texas businessmen, teachers
and students in the field, and will acquaint others with the
forces at play on a vital means of transportation.
