1 Sampson, Anthony Empires of the Sky - The Politics, Contests and Cartels of World Airlines
London Hodder and Stoughton 1984 034034931X / 9780340349311 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Very Good 
A Fine unmarked copy with VG+ price clipped dustjacket. In this book the author penetrates behind the images of the global airlines - British Airways, Pan Am, JAL - to show who really runs them, and how they have both opened up our world and circumscribed it. He shows how the European airlines first grew up in the 1920's, dependent on national ambitions, and how the wartime hopes of 'freedom of the air' were soon forgotten with the revival of European nationalism; while the thrusting American airlines raced across the world under their autocrats Juan Trippe and Howard Hughes. He also covers the development of other countries' airlines and the conflicts and cut-throat tactics of the cartels. **** NOT EX LIB ****
