The third edition of the very popular Shipping Law is now the most up-to-date introductory text on this area of law. In this practical introduction to maritime law the author clearly sets out the current law of shipping and investigates the historical background to many contemporary issues.

There have been major changes to the law since the previous edition, all of which are incorporated into the text. These include the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act, the Merchant Shipping Acts 1993 and 1995, the impact of the Hamburg Rules on carriage regimes worldwide, radical alteration to the law of pollution liability, and a plethora of important cases such as Pine Top and The Star Sea on marine insurance.
