This updated edition of Transport Law in Australia describes the main sources of transport law, jurisdiction and courts, state immunity, and the legal role of transport intermediaries. The scope of the book is broad in that it encompasses maritime, road, rail, air, and multimodal transport law. Almost half the book is devoted to maritime and shipping law which, for an island nation with over 95% of its international trade carried by sea, is as important as it is unsurprising.
Whilst works of this nature have the potential to be a 'dry' read, in this case the author has taken an approach which makes the book eminently readable and usable. The text is well supported by in-depth research and enhanced with comprehensive referencing, footnotes, tables of cases and statutes, as well as a selected bibliography.
