    Oceans of Power – 125 Years of Marine Engineering Milestones written by John Barnes, the former editor and publisher of Marine Engineers Review (MER), tells the story of marine engineering over the last two centuries from the coming of steam to the nuclear age and beyond. Central to much of the story is the role of the Institute of Marine Engineering, now IMarEST, in reporting and encouraging this process since its foundation in 1889. Each chapter is illustrated with contemporary photographs and drawings. Themes covered include early steam engines, boilers, the steam turbine, diesel engines, turbocharging, automation, submarine systems, gas turbines and nuclear power, ship developments, the offshore revolution, future fuels and alternative energy sources.
