Between the Civil War and World War I, Philadelphia emerged as the vital centre of American shipbuilding. This work explores this complex industry, from the workshop level to subcontracting networks spanning the Delaware valley. It describes entrepreneurial strategies and industrial change that facilitated the rise of the major shipbuilding firms; how naval architecture, marine engineering, and craft skills evolved as iron and steel took over wood as the basic construction material; and how changes in domestic and international trade and the rise of the American steel navy helped generate vessel contracts for local builders. The book also examines the military-industrial complex in the context of naval contracting.
