Admiralty and Maritime Law by

Publisher's description: With approximately seventy percent of the earth's surface covered by water, it could be argued that legal issues concerning admiralty do not receive their due in the greater spectrum of the law. Nevertheless, this lack of public recognition is by no means mirrored in the law itself. Vast amounts of shipping traffic, lucrative cruise liners, and pirates, among other things, still require a robust legal regime to successfully, and peacefully, navigate the world's waterways. The goal of this guide is to help the novice and expert alike in finding an appropriate place to begin research; it contains definitions, information and sources on major subtopics, primary and secondary sources of U.S. law, and also sources of international, intranational, and transnational maritime law
