The book provides an introduction to shipping in all its aspects. It is a mine of information for students of traditional maritime law as well as for those who seek to understand maritime and shipping services on a world scale. The text includes information and analytical content on national and international practices in shipping including the age-old dichotomy between freedom of the seas and the persistent demands of states to control specific maritime areas, and the tension between, on the one hand, the claims of States to regulate and protect their shipping interests and, on the other hand, the abiding concern and unquestioned right of the international community effectively to regulate the global shipping industry in order to ensure maritime safety, protection of the environment and fair competition.
