Ingo Löwenstrom's 299 Schiffe und ihre Geschichten: Eine Reise über Ozeane, PDF

By Ingo Löwenstrom

ISBN-10: 3743193620

ISBN-13: 9783743193628

Es gibt eine Vielzahl von Büchern über Schiffe und Schifffahrt. Warum jetzt dieses Buch? Hätte sich der Mensch nicht auf das Wasser gewagt, sähe unsere Welt heute anders aus. Und so gibt es Bücher über historische Schiffe, Segelschiffe, Schiffstypen, einzelne berühmte Schiffe und vieles mehr. Schifffahrt findet nicht nur auf den großen Meeren statt. Die Binnenschifffahrt ist ein genauso bedeutender Faktor in der modernen Welt. Technische Innovationen fanden und finden genauso in der Binnenschifffahrt wie in der Hochseeschifffahrt statt. In diesem Buch geht es um die Schifffahrt, und zwar um die Hochseeschifffahrt genauso, wie um die Binnenschifffahrt.
In der europäischen Literatur wird oftmals der Beginn der Seefahrt über die Weltmeere und der damit beginnenden Globalisierung mit den Königinnen der Meere, den Segelschiffen, speziell den Karacken, Karavellen und Galeonen, gleichgestellt. Allenfalls wird noch Koggen, venezianischen Galeeren und den Wikingerschiffen eine entsprechende Rolle zugewiesen. Jedoch ist auch diese Darstellung nicht richtig. Der heutzutage so beliebte Katamaran ist keineswegs eine europäische Erfindung. Der Pazifik warfare vor 2500 Jahren noch unbesiedelt und in nur einem Jahrtausend haben die Polynesier dies geändert und zwar mit Katamaranen. Chinesische Schiffsbauer kannten bereits im 1. Jahrhundert das Heckruder. Wasserdichte Quer- und Längsschotte sind seit dem 2. Jahrhundert Bestandteil einer Dschunke.
Um einige Schiffe ranken sich Mythen und Legenden. Andere halten Rekorde und manche wiederum sorgten für Schlagzeilen. Viele Schiffe sind keine Schlagzeile wert und kommen in keinem movie oder Buch vor. Dennoch verrichten Menschen jeden Tag harte Arbeit auf ihnen und helfen unsere moderne Welt zu gestalten und zu bewahren. Fahren Sie literarisch mit mir an Bord von 299 alphabetisch vorgestellten Schiffen durch die Jahrhunderte auf den Gewässern dieser Welt.
