This important volume brings together an authoritative selection of the leading papers on the subject of maritime transport. With a new introductory essay by the editors, the collection provides a thorough examination of the topics associated with this area, including maritime economics, transport law and policy.

Part I includes articles on carrier management and operations. Part II looks in detail at competition policy and pricing. Part III discusses finance, the fiscal treatment of shipping and flag of registry issues. Part IV covers the area of law and policy and Part V examines market and structures. Finally, Part VI focuses on ports.

This collection will be an invaluable resource for major maritime academies and to students and researchers in the subject of maritime transport.
‘The last 40 years has seen a marked increase in the number and quality of papers on various aspects of maritime economics; but they are scattered around a variety of journals, some of which are not readily available outside university libraries. This volume brings together 33 of the most important papers published in the last few years and from nearly a dozen different sources. A helpful introduction sets the scene and refers to several other papers. This book should have a prominent place on the shelves of everyone having a serious interest in the subject.’
