really liked it

Part of West Law's Hornbook series, this book by a very experienced attorney and protor of admiralty law is a great introduction to admiralty law at the Federal jurisdiction in the USA and also to a degree to general maritime law concepts. Like all hornbooks, case law is not covered but instead historical basis and contemporary law is in detail. As this book was published in 1987, there may be some changes to current US law not covered here, which if you're in active practice and consult it is something to keep in mind. In general, despite its academic nature, this is a very readable and to-the-point book and it's easy to find the material you desire if looking for something specific but also actually readable as a consummate work.
