The maritime law of the United States is harmonious in broad outline with the laws of other maritime nations, but it has a unique structure—tied to the U.S. Constitution and the Judiciary Act of 1789—entailing a special set of intellectual challenges. Admiralty and Maritime Law in the United States is a leading casebook that reveals the areas of international harmony and explores U.S. law's special features. Each of the authors is an admiralty expert, but the book strives for a generalist's perspective. It aims to tie the admiralty field into the students' other studies while providing the fundamental professional tools necessary to the advanced study or practice of U.S. maritime law.
The fourth edition includes new cases and notes that keep the reader apprised of changes in the law.
