"The period since the financial and commercial crisis of 2008-9 has been particularly productive of reported cases on appeal from maritime arbitration awards. Some 200 new cases have been digested or noted in the new edition of this now-standard and authoritative work.
...it can be confirmed that the authors have succeeded admirably in what they set out to do, namely "to provide a concise and practical guide to maritime arbitration, but also to set maritime arbitration within the context of English arbitration more generally."
