The international law of the sea.


The international law of the sea.

Rothwell, Donald and Tim Stephens.

Hart Publishing


500 pages




Rothwell (international law, Australian National U., Canberra) and Stephens (law, U. of Sydney) summarize and analyze the International Law of the Sea as formally adopted during the late 20th century but still influenced by centuries of informal practice. Among their perspectives are the history and sources of the law, territorial seas and continuous zones, the continental shelf, high seas, landlocked and geographically disadvantaged states, international straits and archipelagic navigation, marine resource management, marine environmental protection, maritime regulation and enforcement, and oceans governance. Distributed in the US by ISBS.
