About the Author

Charles Clark began his working life as a merchant seaman in the British Merchant Navy and later became a research chemist, with a doctorate from the University of Stirling, Scotland. He is well equipped for this discussion of safety at sea. As an academic, he is the co-author of 90-100 publications in refereed international chemistry journals and three book chapters. He has worked at the Australian National University and the University of Otago.


'Women and Children Last is strikingly well written. Detailed and precise without becoming tedious, wryly witty in places but never inhumane, Dunedin writer Charles R. Clark's prose has a poise and economy many of our fiction writers could learn from.' Sunday Star Times
