Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0444703071, Hardcover)The book adopts a new scientific and practical approach in dealing with the law of collision at sea. It begins with a chapter on the navigational rules and then proceeds to a detailed coverage of the collision rules with reference to the relevant cases which are illustrated by sketches. Collision may give rise to other incidents and claims such as pollution, general average, salvage award, etc. A separate chapter is devoted to these claims. Another chapter is concerned with the criminal liability of the Master and the Shipowner. The last chapter describes the jurisdiction of the British Admiralty Court, choice of law, the procedures of the Court and the various remedies such as arrest, rearrest and the MAREVA injunction. The impact of new technology is carefully analysed, such as in the use of electronic charts, the use of Automatic Radar Plotting Aids (ARPA), and the effect of the introduction of Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) on collision incidents and the liability of the Master.
