Ships and Science is a meticulously researched, scholarly book…Any maritime historian or maritime architecture scholar should benefit from reading this erudite, thought-provoking book.—Louis Arthur Norton, The Northern Mariner—
This volume should be required reading for all students of naval architecture.
This is a superb volume, and is likely to be regarded in coming years as the starting point of the now fast growing study of the foundations of applied science and engineering.
