Scotland was at the forefront of Britain’s dominance of international trade in the 19th century: the greatest centre of shipbuilding in the world and the possessor, in Glasgow, of one of the principal ports and centres of industry. This history details these contributions to seaborne business and also describes the part that energetic and well-educated Scottish emigrants have played in encouraging maritime commerce by taking their engineering and entrepreneurial skills to all parts of the world.
