Many things have changed since 1973, when the 1st edition of “The Business of Shipping” was published by the Cornell Maritime Press (now part of Schiffer Publishing). The 9th edition of this commercial classic was launched in July 2018,10 years after the previous edition, authored by Ira Breskin- a one-time transportation reporter who is now a teacher at the highly regarded SUNY Fort Schuyler- the New York maritime academy.
