About this book
A thrilling look at the unpredictable and destructive world of the oceans. There is no popular book that portrays the depth of mankind's struggle with the sea. This is the first historical and scientific treatment for the lay reader tracing the role that oceans have had on our culture. Bruce Parker is a world recognised expert in the oceans.
A spell-binding and heart-stopping narrative that reveals the amazing power of the oceans and explains for the first time how scientists have learned to predict the sea's destructive moments that can take the lives of millions.
