This work for researchers and academics in transport law and comparative law begins with background on Norway's geography, demography, political and legal system, and a general introduction to Norway's transportation systems. Part 1covers sources of the country's transport law, outlines maritime, rail, road, and air transport law, and addresses jurisdiction, courts, and state immunity. Part 2 focuses on maritime law, with chapters on many topics, including maritime liens and mortgages, master and crew, the bill of lading, piloting, salvage and assistance, general average and particular average, collisions, pollution, and arrest of ships. Part 3 considers other forms of transport, such as road, rail, air, and multimodal transport, discussing issues such as carriage of passengers and goods, liability, and gross negligence. The last chapter covers international law and international agreements. This book was originally published as a monograph in the International Encyclopedia of Laws/Transport Law.
