Book Reviews
“This book provides an excellent overview of the enormous challenges faced by the industry in the maritime supply chain and its connections to other modes of transportation. Both editors and the contributing authors have excellent academic credentials and have clearly carried out extensive research into the field…This book is well worth the investment for those who are interested in the increasingly complex field of supply chain security and how the security of ports and shipping both affect and are affected by this dynamic field.¿ -- Mike Edgerton, CPP, manager of port security for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
