Praise

Winner of the 2021 John Lyman Award in the Naval and Maritime Science and Technology

Bridging the Seas is a brilliant, exceptionally well-researched and written account of how the science of building ships transformed not only the maritime world, but also human society first connected globally by those ships. Bridging the Seas is destined to be the standard reference on the subject—and a classic.”—James P. Delgado, PhD, archaeologist, undersea explorer, and author

Bridging the Seas completes a major intellectual achievement, one that has given modern naval architecture a history worthy of the discipline, and equips all those who study the human engagement with the sea the tools they need to understand the ship, the most significant artifact in that relationship, as engineering, design, inspiration, and culture. We are all in Larrie Ferreiro’s debt.”—Andrew Lambert, Laughton Professor of Naval History, Kings College London
