Abstract

In this book an attempt has been made to introduce the reader to the subject of shipping which is as vast as the oceans. Shipping is inherently international in scope; hence the caption “international shipping”. A kaleidoscopic view of shipping as it has evolved over the recent past has been provided by looking into the current milieu and beyond clustered by numerous issues of imminent and ongoing concern. In the previous editions of this book, the primary focus has been on the shipping industry viewed largely from the private sector vantage point. While many of the same issues continue to exist, some in the same form, others in a new shape, notions and perceptions are changing inevitably.
