Description of Product

The first edition of the book has received widespread readership and is used by many shipping practitioners, especially in Singapore and Malaysia, as a reference text on issues of admiralty law. It has also been cited in judgments of the Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Canadian courts.

Since the first edition, practically every area of admiralty law has seen significant developments, mainly in the form of case law but also, on the subjects of invocation of admiralty jurisdiction, tonnage limitation and international maritime arbitration, legislative reform. The task of covering several hundred decisions handed down by the Courts of Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, The United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Canada has necessitated the substantial re-writing of Chapters 3, 4, 12 and 13.

A new chapter, Chapter 14, which covers the relationship between admiralty actions and maritime arbitration, has been added to this edition.
