About this book

The carriage of goods by sea mainly focuses on loss of or damage to goods. There are voluminous discussions and texts on this issue. By contrast, the issue of loss or damage from goods has been paid little attention. Ever-increasing numbers of dangerous goods are carried by sea today. This increase draws attention to explosions or fire on ships, spillages, pollution, accidents and potential danger. Worldwide concern with the risk posed by the increased frequency in the carriage of dangerous goods has led to the adoption of international technical standards to promote maritime safety and the insertion of special provisions in the carriage contracts. Moreover, growing environmental awareness and concern with the economic cost implications of maritime casualties have given rise to the regulation of liability and compensation in respect of damage caused by hazardous and noxious substances.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is essentially a study in comparative law as to the limits of the concept of strict liability to ensure maritime safety. … the book does offer a helpful descriptive comparison between the different regimes (English, US and German). … This book should be of interest to comparative and shipping law academics. … The discussions around English and US materials are well rounded and of sufficient depth." (Jason Chuah, The Journal of Business Law, Issue 6, 2009)
