Cloth. $95. * Martin [1830-1883], the editor of the Statesman's Year-Book, examines the development of marine insurance in what was then the world's leading maritime power. He shows, moreover, that the system developed under the leadership of Lloyd's helped Great Britain to acheive this position. Martin emphasizes the influence of commercial, international and admiralty law in the evolution of marine insurance and argues that they helped the industry to mature into an effective system that is emulated throughout the world.
