"In the six years since the last edition of this book, the most important development to affect its subject-matter has been the approval by the United Nations of the new "Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea", generally known as the Rotterdam Rules. This edition deals with these Rules from two perspectives. One is to discuss (in a new Chapter 10) the Convention as a self-contained body of rules. ... The other perspective is to discuss (in the largely revised Chapters 1 to 8) the effects of the Rotterdam Rules on the rules (of common law and legislation) which now govern bills of lading and certain related documents in English law." -- Preface, p. v.
