"Dr Power’s study is truly a vade mecum for shipping practitioners, combining analysis with copious citations of EU sources, such as Commission decisions or EU court rulings.

...Dr Power’s final chapter on Brexit makes a number of thought-provoking points and repays careful reading, especially his comments on safety and passenger rights.

Dr Power’s survey is truly remarkable for the breadth of its coverage, including ports, state aids and detailed survey of EU law on social legislation affecting seafarers, as well as particularly detailed and useful coverage of EU environmental maritime legislation – an area that this certain to become more important in the future.

Vincent Power’s EU Shipping Law is a truly monumental and magisterial work. It deserves a place on the shelves of any maritime practitioner."
