Carriage of Goods By Sea by John Wilson
"...deserves a place on the shelf of every law teacher in the subject, and at least on the reading list of all its students." - "The Cambridge Law Journal" The fifth edition of "Carriage of Goods by Sea" has been brought up to date with the latest judicial decisions, statutory developments and changes in shipping practice. It provides an authoritative, comprehensive and critical survey of the law relating to the carriage of goods by sea. While dealing primarily with charterparties and bills of landing, attention is also given to new forms of documentation and problems involving through and combined transport. A separate chapter is also devoted to dispute settlement. Throughout, legal principles are examined against the background of current documentation and factors involved in the prosecution of a cargo claim, thus lending the legal analysis to practical orientation.
