For many years, the bulk maritime shipping has been utilized in order to lower the transportation. The development of the tanker transportation was directly connected with the flourishing of the oil exploration. This book will be of particular use to the people interested in the historical background of the maritime transportation of oil and its products.

After the introductory part, the reader will be given some information on the tanker freights and then the one where the important aspects of ship registration are addressed together with the so-called flags of convenience. The case of the Rhodesian Oil Embargo has been dealt with in a separate chapter. Of course, due attention has been paid by the author to the maritime security matters, considering their critical importance, and tanker wars.

In addition, the oil pollution aspects have been discussed; needless to say that the protection of the marine environment is one of the items to be carefully considered when arranging any maritime transportation of any cargo, but especially the oil cargo. The book will serve as a good reference publication when discussing the oil transportation looking from the historic perspective.
