This introduction to maritime political geography aims to offer an authoritative treatment of the geographic aspects of the new law of the sea, as expressed by the United Nations Convention, drawing upon the authors own experience in this field. Background information is followed by chapters explaining the relevant provisions of the Convention, while topics excluded from the Convention are also addressed. The author refrains from discussing the highly technical, legal or administrative aspects of the law of the sea, but he does address issues such as military uses of the sea and the status of the Southern Ocean. The book is intended for students and scholars concerned with the human use of the marine environment - geographers, political scientists and lawyers.
