"...the book should be a delightful addition to the many maritime law books which - as the complexity and variety of shipping law demands - should be on the shelves of all those who are curious enough to learn about the many facets of shipping law."

Aleka Mandaraka Sheppard

"The editors of this text are... to be congratulated for producing a consistent tone, coherent structure and a uniformly excellent standard of analysis and accuracy throughout the book. The text's highly accessible language, and the skilful blending of academic expertise and practical insights in most of the chapters, will greatly appeal to its target audience of students and practitioners who are relatively new to the subject."
