The descriptive data in this book, first published in 1989, were obtained from participant observation and interviews with merchant seaman current and retired. In addition there is reprinted a complete set of the laws relating to American seaman between 1918-1970. Together they provide a comprehensive understanding of the historical events surrounding the American merchant seaman, the creation of maritime policy, and the policy itself.
