This is a new edition of the leading work on this subject, first published in 1873. It provides detailed, section-by-section commentary on the York-Antwerp Rules 2004.

The commentary sets out the obligations, rights and entitlements of the various parties in a general average situation governed by English law and/or the York- Antwerp Rules. It discusses the various courses of action open to the parties in a general average situation and the effect of taking any of these options on rights and liabilities. It also covers enforcement of rights in general average.

The book's historical approach, looking at the various states of the York-Antwerp Rules over their many revisions, makes clear the nature and impact of the most recent changes.
