This is a book on the allocation of sea-going vessels. Ships are usually placed under the authority of states; sometimes they come under the authority of an international organization. From of old the word nationality has been used to designate this situation. For the sake of immediate intelligibility and out of reverence for history the same term appears in the title of this book. Nevertheless, for reasons to be set out at the end of this introduction, the word allocation has been given preference in the text of this work.
