New book out, 'Dynasties of the Sea: The Shipowners and Financiers Who Expanded the Era of Free Trade' .

The book, published by Barnes & Noble and in electronic format by International Marketing Strategis, is by Lori Ann LaRocco, and gives first person histories of those who led the explosion of world trade which propelled half a world out of poverty, and tells of the industry and ships, which power and feed nations in the words of those who met the global challenges, built and financed the ships and literally helped shape the future.

Shipowners from around the world discuss, what drove them and their businesses, what grand passions and ambitions fueled their innovation. What skills defined their leadership and their dogged determination to be the engine which carries the goods that opened once closed and backward markets.

The book tells the story of the pioneers behind the great behemoths which ply the seas carrying the raw materials from Australia, Brazil, oil from the Middle East and Africa to China, Europe, the United States and the finished goods in every electronics store, grocery and clothing mall around the world.

The author, Lori Ann LaRocco is an American Journalist and is also the author of "Thriving in the New Economy" (Wiley, 2010) and the upcoming book, "Opportunity Knocking" (Agate Publishing, 2014).
