Carver on Bills of Lading covers the nature and applications of bills of lading in economic transactions, discussions, and, on rare occasions, conflicts. The work provides a commentary on the Hague-Visby rules and the Rotterdam rules, as well as coverage of the most important recent cases and Supreme Court judgments, and was written by two of the finest experts on this field of law. The book is part of the Library of British Shipping Laws.
