Shipping Law covers the whole spectrum of English shipping law. It takes a structured and integrated approach to the highly specialised rules of shipping, which are placed in their commercial context and related to the general principles of English contract and tort law. The fourth edition has been expanded in many areas, to take into account developments such as the 2007 Wreck Removal Convention and the Rotterdam Rules on contracts for the international carriage of goods wholly or partly by sea. In-depth analysis is provided of recent important judicial decisions, such as that of the European Court of Justice in Owusu v Jackson; those of the House of Lords in The Jordan II, The Achilleas, The Rafaela S and The Golden Victory; and those of the Court of Appeal in The CMA Djakarta and The Tropical Reefer. This book provides an invaluable source of reference on the subject and will be of use to both students and to those in practice.
