This is a new edition of the leading work on this subject, first published in the 1870s. It provides detailed, section-by-section commentary on the recently revised York-Antwerp Rules. The commentary sets out the obligations, rights and entitlements of the various parties in a general average situation governed by English law and/or the York- Antwerp Rules. It discusses the various courses of action open to the parties in a general average situation and the effect of taking any of these options on rights and liabilities. It also covers enforcement of rights in general average. The book's historical approach, looking at the various states of the YAR over its many revisions, makes clear the nature and impact of the most recent changes.
