"...this book combines academic analysis of a difficult and fascinating subject with practical guideance for shipowners, ship managers and their lawyers. The reference to law and practice in the title is justified. Many of those who buy it will do so for the practical guidance it provides but they would be missing something valuable if they did not at least dip into the earlier chapters, which are of particular interest to students of maritime law. A third edition, preserving the legacy of the first two, is welcome and the book is now an established text."
