Economist Marc Levinson previewed his new book, The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger (Princeton Univ. Press, 2006) in a column in this morning's Financial Times (April 25, 2006, 17). This sounds like a "must read" for those interested in the history of business, technology, and globalization.

Anyone interested in this topic should also keep an eye out for a forthcoming book by Shane Hamilton, asst. prof. at the University of Georgia and a former undergraduate of mine, on truck drivers and the post-WWII food economy.
