Marsden and Gault forms part of the highly respected British Shipping Law Series. It serves as an in-depth guide to the specialist and self-contained area of Collision and Loss in maritime law examining recent cases and convention developments. The 15th edition, edited by Professor Andrew Tettenborn and John Kimbell QC, has been updated not only in substance, but in arrangement, instigating a more modern and clearer structure. The commentary proceeds seamlessly from navigational fault and the interpretation of the Collision Regulations, towards special liability regimes and pollution and throughout the remainder of the text.
