"Laytime and demurrage is a favourite topic of maritime lawyers everywhere. It is a complex subject that has been the subject of legal dispute from time immemorial. In particular, the last one and one half centuries have seen massive development of this branch of the law. This book describes those developments clearly. Another vital reference book for all those involved directly in the maritime industry or who are marine lawyers." - Asia Pacific Shipping on Laytime and Demurrage, 5th Edition
