{detailed description}There are many reference books about aircraft and aviation, but this comprehensive survey is the first to cover the forty eventful years of airline history as a whole. The story of every airline in the world, however small, is described fully. The problems each has had to face are placed both in its own particular environment and against the wider background of world events as they affect this enormous, twentieth-century industry.
The historical facts are chronicled as concisely as possible and the author draws conclusions from them, and explains why various developments in the history of the world's airlines happened as they did. The book is thus much more than a mere recital of data, and will interest anyone—expert or layman—who wants to learn more about a dynamic and vitally important industry.

from the Foreword by Peter Masefield
'All students of Air Transport will recognize the vast amount of meticulous research which has gone into the compilation of this unique account of the world's air carriers .... I most heartily recommend this great work to all those who have an interest in transport, in aviation, and in the history of a modern phenomenon . . .. a work which must take its place on every aeronautical bookshelf.'

The cover picture shows the world signpost at Nairobi Airport. The arms point correctly to every corner of the world and show the great circle mileage.
