The Law of Tug, Tow and Pilotage / Edition 3 available in Hardcover
The current editor has continued in that fine tradition. Nowhere has the law related to marine transportation of goods by tug and tow and harbor towage and pilotage been treated in greater depth. The citations are presented in a useful form, giving precedence to the AMC cites most commonly used by the admiralty practitioner; the essence of the holdings of cases is enclosed in parentheses following the citation.
Providing the professional practitioner with a ready source of reference to this area of the maritime world, the book treats the concepts of the field by tracing their derivation in admiralty law. Also included with the analysis of each topic is a thorough survey of case law. In this edition new case citations have been added, updating the law where there have been changes and reflecting the inevitable evolution of the law that is its lifeblood. The case update is generally through the 1992 AMC.
The chapter on governmental regulation has been largely rewritten to reflect the recodification of Title 46 of the United States Code, as have the chapters on pilotage, maritime liens and mortgages, and marine insurance. Cross referencing of the decisions of U.S., Canadian, and U.K. courts has been expanded. An overview of the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 has been added. The chapter on maritime liens now takes into account the Ship Mortgage Act of 1988 and the inclusion therein of the Maritime Lien Act.
