Carver on Charterparties, in conjunction with Carver on Bills of Lading, covers the ground of the classic 1982 treatise Carver’s Carriage by Sea. Carver on Charterparties is a major new work of thematic synthesis and analysis that seeks to re-establish Carver as the leading narrative authority in a fundamental area of shipping law. Its discursive and encyclopedic approach offers an alternative to that provided in Scrutton on Charterparties and Bills of Lading.

“Carver is, however, now back, in tandem and in strength; for within the space of a month, shelf-space now needs to be made in every shipping lawyer’s room for the first edition of Carver on Charterparties and the fourth edition of Carver on Bills of Lading”

“The authors of the new Carver on Charterparties have, indeed, systemised, presenting the subject in an analytically thoughtful sequence.”

From a forthcoming review by Charles Debattista of Stone Chambers, for the International Company and Commercial Law Review.

“If one wants to know the answer to a problem on charterparties, one will almost certainly find it in the new Carver and, if not, one will find out where to find it. It is a work that makes a significant contribution to the literature and should find a place in the library of every practitioner and academic in the field of maritime law.”

From the review by Professor Simon Baughen in the Journal of International Maritime Law.
