**Review of previous edition**...All this material is attractively and clearly presented...There are interesting historical accounts... The citation of relevant authorities is impressive, and little of relevance is omitted...The value of the book transcends its coverage of these specifically "marine topics"...There is an impressive citation and analysis of both marine and non-marine decisions... succeed in drawing together and analysing a wealth of authority which extends well beyond marine insurance...Complex areas of the law such as causation of loss and insurable interest in property are skilfully analysed in a readily comprehensible way...The author has succeeded in producing a book not only for the benefit of the less experienced reader for whom it is primarily intended, but also one which reader familiar with the filed can read with profit. Multum in parvo, in fact. (P. N. Leigh-Jones QC, The Law Quarterly Review
