Warranties in Marine Insurance
For centuries, warranties have played a significant role in the law of marine insurance and have recently sparked debate on a national and international level after calls for reform. This second edition includes a more involved analysis of law reform as well as a discussion of the recent proposals of the Australian Law Reform Commission.

- a new section on the impact of the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (ISPS Code)
- reference to numerous decisions recently handed down by the courts eg. HIH Casualty and General Insurance Ltd. v. New Hampshire Co. and Agapitos v. Agnew (No. 2)
