Publishers Description: During the First World War the former ships' captain Peder Smedvig established himself as a shipowner and canning manufacturer in Stavanger, on the west coat of Norway. Today, more than 75 years later, maritime activities still form the core of the Smedvig companies - contract drilling and shipping. This book is a study of entrepreneurship through three generations, making extensive use of company and other archives as well as interviews. The history of the company is analyzed against the international economic and political development. Personal, local and international events, long range planning as well as coincidence, have all played a part when crucial business decisions had to be faced. At the same time the authors underline how the different personalities of the successive owners influenced their decision making in an ever changing local and international business environment. The authors use the interaction between the local and the international context as one of their main research tools in their interpretation of the history of he Smedvig companies - from the First World War when scanning fevers hit the town, until the present, when Starvanger is the oil capital of Norway.
