Berlingieri on Arrest of Ships
Informa Law from Routledge – 2011 – 880 pages
Series: Lloyd's Shipping Law Library
This book is an invaluable source of information about the claims in respect of which a ship may be arrested in the various maritime countries of the world, the conditions for obtaining an order of arrest, the need, if any, for a security, the manner by which the ship that has been arrested may be released, the possibility of a multiple arrest and the jurisdiction on the merits.
Berlingieri provides an analysis and insightful commentary, on an article per article and paragraph per paragraph basis, of the 1952 International Convention for the Unification of Certain Rules Relating to the Arrest of Sea-Going Ships and the 1999 International Convention on Arrest of Ships (entering into force September 2011).
