“The 9th edition of Kennedy & Rose Law of Salvage
has indubitably maintained the reputation of the Kennedy
book as a piece of comprehensive work of excellence in the field of salvage law. Professor Rose is a towering figure as a scholar and author in maritime law who has undertaken the monumental tasks of successively editing, revising and updating the book through five editions. His prodigious efforts are more than adequately reflected in the pages of this edition of the book, written
at once with clarity and simplicity yet meticulous care for a wide readership comprising academics and professionals in the field of salvage. Other beneficiaries include young aspiring scholars engaged in post-graduate studies in maritime law with a special interest in salvage law. Those of us who are involved in maritime law in one way or another, and are closely associated with salvage law in whatever capacity, owe a profound debt of gratitude to the distinguished author for producing this invaluable text.”
