Ships and Memories: Merchant Seafarers in Canada's Age of Steam

By Eric W. Sager | Go to book overview

SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER READING

No short list of books on this subject can be complete. Popular maritime history is growing rapidly in Canada, and it seems ungenerous to mention only a few of the many fascinating books available. I list here only some of my preferences.

In Britain, Tony Lane uses interviews with seafarers in his book Grey Dawn Breaking: British Merchant Seafarers in the Late Twentieth Century ( Manchester: Manchester University Press 1986). See also Tony Lane, "'Neither Officers Nor Gentlemen,'" History Workshop Journal 19 (Spring 1985):129-43 and Lane The Merchant Seamen's War ( Manchester: Manchester University Press 1990). A good illustrated introduction to the technology is Robin Craig The Ship: Steam Tramps and Cargo Liners ( Greenwich: National Maritime Museum 1980), one of the NMM series on the ship. A superb pictorial account, based on a BBC radio series, is Michael Mason, Basil Greenhill, and Robin Craig, The British Seafarer ( London: Hutcheson/BBC 1980). Ronald Hope edited three collections of reminiscences by seafarers: Twenty Singing Seamen ( London: Stanford Maritime 1979); The Seamen's World ( London: Harrap 1982); and Sea Pie ( London: Fairplay 1984). Valuable insights may be gained from the novels of James Hanley, including Hollow Sea ( London: John Lane 1938) and Between the Tides ( London: John Lane 1939). One can hardly omit mention of Joseph Conrad, especially his Mirror of the Sea ( London: Dent 1923). A collection of scholarly essays is provided by Peter Fricke, ed., Seafarer and Community ( London: Croom Helm 1973); Fricke also wrote The Social Structure of Crews of British Dry Cargo Merchant Ships ( Cardiff. University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology 1974).

From the American side we have J. C. Healey, Foc's'le and Glory Hole: A Study of the Merchant Seaman and His Occupation ( New York: Oxford University Press 1936); and
