A sharp, impeccably informed and thoroughly practical guide to contemporary and developing issues relating to sea pollution, prepared by leading academics and practitioners with everyday hands-on experience.
This book homes in on a number of the vital private law issues – compensation, insurance, contract and tort – thrown up by contemporary developments in the law of pollution. The book also intends to offer a critical analysis on emerging public law concepts, such as the legal position of seafarers from the perspective of criminal law in cases of pollution and the impact of port state control as a pollution control mechanism.
As a result, it is a perfect complement to general works such as Informa's magisterial Shipping and the Environment, by Colin de la Rue and Charles Anderson.
