Through judicial opinions, statutes, conventions, documents, and textual notes, this Admiralty casebook shows how lawyers litigate, arbitrate, and repress disputes in domestic and international maritime transportation by using the tools of private international law. Within the same length as the Fourth Edition, the Fifth Edition updates the treatment of the usual topics and slightly rearranges the structure. A new chapter presents background on undeveloped topics such as piracy, the Deepwater Horizon casualty, and the Rotterdam Rules. The editors have sought to keep the Fifth Edition comfortable for long-time users and to make it accessible to new users.
