The Nature of Seaports

Part of the GeoJournal Library book series (GEJL, volume 51)


The general introduction to this book briefly examined why it is interesting to study ports and more specifically port management. The main reason given was the dearth of literature on the nature of the various relationships between public and private actors. All the same, there is literature available on ports in a more general sense although it is not equally accessible for everyone. Three of the best known books are J.G. Baudelaire’s Port administration and management (1986), A.E. Branch’s Elements of port operation and management (1986) and E.G. Frankel’s Port planning and development (1987) which supply useful concepts for port authorities and highlight various trends in port administration.
