Abstract:

The book contains nineteen chapters, comprising papers and discussions from the conference. The theme of the conference was, first, whether the present limits of United States jurisdiction in the oceans are sufficient for the national needs and, second, what alternative types of controls might be established for the high seas beyond national limits. Changing technological, economic, and political conditions are forcing a re- evaluation of certain aspects of the law of the sea. Among the topics covered in this book are fisheries resources in offshore waters, mining in the sea, the law and new technologies, and international control of high seas resources. Author
