Book Description

Now presented in two convenient volumes, the sixth edition of Berlingieri on Arrest of Ships is an invaluable source of information, detailing the claims in respect of which a ship may be arrested, the conditions for obtaining an order of arrest, the need for a security, the manner by which the ship that has been arrested may be released, the possibility of a multiple arrest and the jurisdiction on the merits.

Written by a renowned expert in the field, and analysing the various conventions relating to the arrest of ships in an article-by-article and paragraph manner, these books are a useful reference tool for practitioners, as well as academics and post-graduate students of maritime law.

"This is a work of major and collaborative scholarship, Professor Berlingieri having received contributions from notable academics and practitioners from many jurisdictions…The scholarship is evident in, for example: the copious reference to other international instruments and to the potential conflicts between them; the examination of individual countries’ implementation of the Arrest Convention for divergence from the Convention itself; and the frequent reference to the history and the traveux of the Convention."
