'I regard this as one of the best texts of any discipline on the market. It is widely regarded by those who use it as an excellent text book and it fills an important niche in the market.' Dr Richard Barnes, University of Hull ' deserves a place on the shelf of every law teacher in the subject, and at least on the reading lists of all its students.' Review of a previous edition, The Cambridge Law Journal Carriage of Goods by Sea is the definitive textbook on this important area of international trade law and is suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Written by an expert in the field, it provides an authoritative, in-depth and critical survey of all aspects of the law relating to carriage of goods by sea. While concentrating largely on charterparties and bills of lading, attention is also given to new forms of documentation, the problems surrounding through and combined transport, and dispute resolution. The book successfully combines a clear analysis of legal principles with sound practical considerations, allowing for a more complete treatment of the subject.New to this edition The sixth edition has been brought completely up to date with the most recent case and statutory developments in this area of the law, including: * Exploration of significant changes in the law relating to time charters, bills of lading and the remedies for breach of contract * Inclusion of new material on the progression of the CMI/UNCITRAL project for a new carriage convention * Discussion of significant recent judicial decisions, including The Rafaela S, Jindal Iron and Steel Co. v Islamic Solidarity, Sea Success Maritime Inc. v African Maritime Carriers Ltd., El Greco (Australia) Pty Ltd. v Mediterranean Shipping, Golden Strait Corp. v Nippon Yusen Kubishika Kaisha, Compania Sud American Vapores v MS ER Hamburg, Lauritzencool v Lady Navigation Inc. and Transfield Shipping Inc. v Mercator Shipping Inc. This text is suitable for recommendation to students on international trade law, maritime and shipping law, and carriage of goods courses. It is also an invaluable reference tool for professionals in legal firms, shipbroking and cargo insurance firms.About the author John F Wilson is an active member of the Institute of Maritime Law at the University of Southampton and is Emeritus Professor of Law at the University.
