International Maritime and Admiralty Law

International Maritime and Admiralty Law is intended as a broad resume for the scholar, professor, practitioner, and judge who wishes to understand the origins of maritime and admiralty law (both civil and common and statute law). This unique reference book offers analysis, synthesis, and critical statements on the differences, advantages, and disadvantages of the different law systems studied. Wherever possible, each question of law is looked at from the point of view of the civil law, the common law, and the general maritime law. National laws are then examined, in particular, the laws of the United Kingdom, the United States, France, and Canada, as well as the Chinese Maritime Code 1993 and the Swedish (Nordic) Maritime Code 1994. Finally, international laws and conventions are considered.
