The UN Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea 2009 - from which the Rotterdam Rules derive – potentially represents a development of unparalleled significance in the field of unimodal carriage of goods by sea and multimodal transport with a sea leg.
The scale of the Rules is staggeringly wide, as also are their detail and complexity, and coming to a full understanding of the provisions and implications of the Rules represents a challenge even to those experienced in the law and practice of commercial shipping. The Law Relating to the Carriage of Goods by Sea Under the Rotterdam Rules examines virtually all aspects of the Rules and will provide an effective, reliable and readable guide to everyone seeking a complete grasp of the Rules.
The book is based on papers presented at the Sixth International Colloquium organised by the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, Swansea University, in September 2009. The sixteen contributions have been written by a team of international experts who collectively submit the newly proposed Rotterdam Rules to a sustained, penetrative and comprehensive analysis.
The book is edited by Professor D. Rhidian Thomas, Director of the Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law, and Professor of Maritime Law at Swansea University.
