Boleslaw Adam Boczek was born on March 29, 1922 in Bielsko, Poland.

Papadakis, International Law of the Sea: A Bibliography 1471; McConville and Rickaby, Shipping Business and Maritime Economics: An Annotated International Bibliography 2798.

Foreword by Myres S. McDougal.

"This book presents.the first comprehensive discussion of the problem of flags of convenience - the flags of Panama, Liberia, Honduras (Panlibhon), as well as others under which many foreign and American-owned ships are registered. The issue is of particular interest for the United States because of its effects on labor unions and defense planning.

Before embarking on his major subject, the international legal aspects of foreign registry, Mr. Boczek outlines the origin and growth of the practice, giving the present size and composition of the various fleets. He gives the reasons why ship owners have been deserting their national flags and why they have preferred to register under a particular Panlibhon flag. For American owners the principal answer in the first case is to reduce operating costs, and in the second to escape taxation.

For international law the basic issue is whether the nationality granted to ships by the Panlibhon states should be recognized by other states and be conclusive for all purposes of international law. After an analysis of this problem, the author treats, among other issues, the matterof labor jurisdiction on Panlibhon ships, the relevant advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice of 1960, the concept of 'effective U.S. control,' and the notion of 'genuine link,' as it was introduced in the International Law Commission and formulated at the 1958 Geneva Conference on the Law of the Sea in the still unratified Convention on the High Seas. In a concluding chapter, the author suggests that the solution to this highly controversial issue in international shipping should be sought on the economic and fiscal levels of the states concerned." - from the dj [not with this copy].

In the Images of our Past series. "The story of Titanic's tragic sinking on April 15, 1912, has been told countless times in films and books, inscribing it into popular culture as perhaps the best-known disaster of all-time. When Titanic went down off the coast of Newfoundland, the city of Halifax, Nova Scotia, was the base from which recovery operations were mounted. Eventually, 337 bodies were discovered, the majority of them by ships dispatched from Halifax. Of this total, 128bodies were buried at sea and 209 were delivered to Halifax--150 of those buried in three of the city's cemetaries. They remain there to this day, the largest number of Titanic graves in the world, cared for in perpetuity bythe city and visited by thousands each year. On the one-hundredth annivers ary of Titanic's sinking, author John Boileau examines the relationship between the city of Halifax, the unprecedented tragedy, and the sombre recovery effort in this illustrated edition". --from the rear cover.
