Editorial Reviews

Describes the diplomatic and military efforts taken by the US government to preserve and enhance navigation and overflight rights and freedoms worldwide, especially since the 1982 adoption of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea. Discusses how the US knows excessive claims when it sees them, legal divisions of the oceans and airspace, navigation and overflight rights and duties, and emerging ocean US and international issues and policy regarding the ocean. Focuses on access and does not address other ocean issues such as fishing and mining. Updated from the 1994 "Excessive Maritime Claims" to incorporate new cases and additional provisions of the Convention. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
