It will guide shipmasters through interviewing, hiring and managing armed guards, and will guide armed guards who are contemplating being hired. It provides important information for NGO’s and governments. We identify various risks of sureties, owners, masters, other exercitors, armed guards and interested parties.
- The book is written to supplement and to complement the book by John A. C. Cartner, Richard P. Fiske and Tara L. Leiter, The International Law of the Shipmaster (2009) Informa/Lloyds (hereafter ILOTS), below.
- This book is a worldwide survey and analysis of the international Conventions, domestic statutes, international regulations and some of the the principal cases governing the ocean shipmaster. It is the only single-volume treatise in print reviewing the history and laws of the shipmaster and of all relevant international organizations, inter-governmental organizations (IGO’s) and non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) of the United Nations (UN) and its member states and of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) and its member states. The legal regimes of states with civil law traditions and those with common law traditions are compared in the context of the ocean shipmaster.
