This book is a concise treatise on International law and practice on Bills of Lading. It provides a useful introduction to an important and complex branch of law. It is a scholarly work of high standard. The book comprises a series of lectures delivered by the author at the Department of Law, University of Cochin.

The chief merit of the book, however, lies in the skill employed in examining some of the issues in such a manner that they create interest in the reader and provoke thinking on his part.

A critical analysis and comparative evaluation of the Hague Rules and the Hamburg Rules relating to Bills of Lading are given and have been explained in a lucid manner. No doubt, the indices given in the book facilitate easy reference.


The book is strongly recommended for legal practitioners, law academicians and law students who are involved with this aspect of shipping law.

- Malayan Law Journal, Singapore


Apart from the shipping institutions and authorities, it is a must for every academician.

- Cuttack Law Times


Since, India will soon emerge as a major trading country, the book should prove useful, not only to lawyers, but also to business executives, and its utility is not confined to those in the shipping trade.

Indian Law Institute


The author has succeeded in convincing the message of the subject in plain words. A copy of the book on its own merit, should decorate every law library in India and abroad.
