"The Good Hope was due to sail from Liverpool on the evening tide, twenty-four hours late already from an electricians' strike.  Captain Blacklock, faced with his first command of a passenger liner, had two anxieties to add to his onerous responsibilities - the presence on board of the Chairman of the Line, and the threat of a stewards' walk-out"

(Signs Of The Times: We live in an age of problems.  Whether these are more besetting than any our ancestors had to bear is another question; the fact remains that we are lumbered with a choice collection.
Nicholas Monsarrat has set out to examine a number of these problems and this is the third of his studies in fiction form.
When he concludes his series, these novels will form a unique commentary on, perhaps an exemplar of the modern world.  It is not as black as it is frequently painted, but it does have its problems - and on these Nicholas Monsarrat is trying to comment with sympathy.)
