It goes without saying that marine insurance is deservedly considered one of the oldest forms in which commercial protection is accomplished. It has been developed through the establishment of the famous institution of so-called "coffee-houses", wherein the first "underwriting" activities were being conducted; in fact, that is from where the evolution and industry dominance of the Lloyd's has actually stemmed as the most famous insurance market in the whole world. It should be noted that the marine insurance contracts are quite special because they all have some special characteristics; moreover, they are considered special because they are contracts of indemnity.

The present publication by Kyriaki Noussia is examining the principles of indemnity within the above mentioned contracts, as well as the most important legal problems relating to this principle, both in theory and in practice - they have all been thoroughly analyzed, evaluated and discussed, and so many informative case studies have been collected by the author and included in the present work.

The book starts with the historical overview of the marine insurance, followed by the chapters covering the indemnity contracts, types of losses. valuation and measure of indemnity, subrogation rights, and the discussion on this principle. The content of the book is supplemented with the tables of cases and statutes. A very good reference source for anyone involved in the marine insurance.​​

The role of warranties in marine insurance has sparked debate in recent years and there have been calls for reform of this area of the law. This book sets out the current law on marine insurance warranties. It further looks at the position on warranties through the wider perspective of how the defence of breach of warranty fits into the scheme of the other major defences the marine insurer may have under a marine policy.

Whether there is any justification for calls for reform is then considered. The law in other jurisdictions is assessed, before specific proposals for possible reforms are set out. At a time when there is a flurry of cases in the English courts on warranties, when the CMI is considering the law on marine insurance and other marine insurance markets may be growing at the expense of the London market, it would be well for all those involved in the London marine insurance market to consider the points made in this eminently readable and thought provoking book.

One of the main objectives of this monograph by Michael Ford, one of the world recognized exerts in the field of marine insurance, was to provide readers with a very comprehensive legal analysis of two aspects.

The part two of the book, in turn, is mainly dealing with the analysis of the extent to which the dishonest activities of third parties to a contract (for example, ship crew members or even pirates) is actually covered by the existing standard marine policies.
