Marine Cargo Claims is a detailed study of the principal legal issues connected to maritime transport law. Twenty years have passed since the third Edition of this book and international carriage of goods by sea law, as well as the whole context of international trade, has changed considerably.

• This book studies basic civil law, common law and maritime law principles as applied to marine cargo claims in the United Kingdom, The United States, France and Canada, with references as well to the law of other jurisdictions.

• It reviews the major principles and rules applied historically by the common law and the civil law to the carriage of goods by sea issues, and marine cargo claims in particular, providing a true transsystemic recapitulation of these fundamental concepts.

• It compares and examines over time the multilateral solutions to marine cargo claims liability issues, as seen in the Hague Rules (1924), the Hague/Visby Rules (1968/1979) and the Hamburg Rules (1978) in relation to major issues of liability for cargo lost or damaged at sea.

• It also examines the past and recent case-law and writings of the most influential legal authors in the four basic jurisdictions and elsewhere on maritime transport law.

• It reproduces the most significant legislation.

• It includes national summaries of the law on marine cargo claims of some 50 countries, written by legal experts from those jurisdictions.
