Lord Mustill, in his foreword to Modern Admiralty Law, said:
"In addition to the general merits of this book, there is one  theme which calls for particular mention. That is, the emphasis laid on risk management. In recent years, this has become a commonplace of business law and practice in many areas, but with a few notable exceptions it has been an absentee from study and practice in the maritime world. Fortunately this is now changing, and Dr. Mandaraka-Sheppard's focus on the subject will, it may be hoped, stimulate interest and promote a wider appreciation of its cardinal importance."
