Product Description:
In 1983 Tristan Jones, well known as one of the finest sailing adventure writers of our time, had his left leg amputated. Refusing to become landbound after a lifetime at sea, he acquired a specially designed, virtually untippable 38-foot trimaran and began to sail around the world. In Somewheres East of Suez, the third installment in the saga of that incredible journey, Tristan sails eight thousand miles from Istanbul to Thailand.

From the tourist- and terrorist-dominated ports of the eastern Mediterranean to African outposts peopled with famine refugees, Tristan maintains the unique perspective of a man who has had minimal contact with society's restraints, using his acerbic wit to spare no fools and offer biting social commentary. After barely escaping with his life in South Yemen, he sets off for the Far East, determined to win out against the difficulties of his disability, whether caught in a tropical cyclone or savoring his dwindling ration of fresh water in the vast windless expanse of the Indian Ocean.

Product Description:
Before the advent of the jet age, ocean liners were the principal means of transport around the globe, and carried migrants and business people, soldiers and administrators, families and lone travelers to every corner of the world. Though the ocean liner was born on the North Atlantic it soon spread to all the other oceans and in this new book the author addresses this huge global story.

The account begins with Brunel's Great Eastern and the early Cunarders, but with the rise in nationalism and the growth in empires in the latter part of the 19th century, and the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, the colonial powers of Spain, France and Germany soon established shipping lines of their own, and transpacific routes were opened up by Japanese and American lines. The golden age between the two world wars witnessed huge growth in liner traffic to Africa, Australia and New Zealand, India and the Far East, the French colonies and the Dutch East and West Indies, but then, though there was a postwar revival, the breakup of empires and the arrival of mass air travel brought about the swan song of the liner.

Employing more than 250 stunning photographs, the author describes not just the ships and routes, but interweaves the technical and design developments, covering engines, electric light, navigation and safety, and accommodation. A truly unique and evocative book for merchant ship enthusiasts and historians.

Product Description:
Excerpt from Travels East of Suez

Port Said, the despised, the refuse heap for all the nations Of the East, is nevertheless a name to conjure with, as it is the gate of the East - the East with all its mysteries, its glamour, its history, its wonders. The first glimpse Of Eastern dress is delightful: such a complete change from the last place ashore - Marseilles. Here the Arabs are in their long garments down to their feet, and their red fez on their heads. At first one believes they are women, till one remembers they would be veiled. Crowds Of little boats come round to take you ashore, the rowers black as ink perhaps, coming up from Somaliland, or brown in tint from the desert. The unceasing shrill chatterings Of all Of them make a strange sound to one's ears; it is quite musical - ever rising and falling like a number Of birds in a state of jubilation. One cannot help a thrill Of excitement as one sees all the gaily-coloured crowds about. It is vastly amusing to walk up the chief street from the landing place. All the shopkeepers are at their doors inviting you in to see all their treasures - ibis place the best for feathers, this for the finest embroideries in the world, this for the best cigarettes, etc. In one shop we were looking at parasols, when the polite Armenian implored our friend who was escorting us to look at some pyjamas. This rather embar rassed him in the presence Of ladies, and he made a discreet bolt for the door, not knowing what might be Offered to him next!

What a lively scene it is to watch, under the shady trees which line the street, groups sitting on the footpath outside the chief hotel, surrounded by hawkers Of beads, necklaces, ornaments, feathers - almost everything; fortune-tellers squat ting Ou the ground, gravely reading the hands of grey-haired men who would scorn to be seen doing such a thing in Europe! Conjurors have a little group round them, showing their prowess in making one chicken into two; Gully, gully, gully, says he, and lo! The poor little wretched yellow chick is presumably torn in two, and behold a pair The sherbet-seller in his shining panoply of brass jugs, trays, glasses and big can, tinkling the brass together to attract attention; the little street Arabs (literallv so here) playing about, bumping in one's way, and scuttling off when you come out with a strong Imshi. A word or two Of suitable strength in their own tongue has a wonderful effect on natives in most parts. They give you credit for a large vocabulary, and treat you with more respect; and, what is better, keep their distance.
