As this monograph demonstrates, "admiralty and maritime law" covers a broad range of subjects. This field of law has its own rules relating to jurisdiction and procedure. Classically, maritime law was a species of commercial law, and in many countries it is still treated as such. Thus, this monograph includes topics such as charter parties,
carriage of goods, and marine insurance. There are also areas of maritime law that are peculiar to the subject matter. The law of collision, towage, pilotage, salvage, limitation of liability, maritime liens, and general average are unique to maritime law. In addition, the United States has developed its own law of maritime personal injury and death. All references are to U.S. courts unless noted otherwise.
