The 1982 U.N. Convention of the Law of the Sea took over a decade to produce and was the final result of the largest single international negotiating process undertaken before or since that time. As the world's leading maritime nation, the U.S. has vital, immediate, national interests in the Convention and in the continuing refinement of maritime law based upon the tenets of that comprehensive document. The present work describes in detail the concurrent development of international law and the law of the sea, the complex negotiating process that resulted in the completed Convention, the role of the U.S. both during the Law of the Sea Convention and during the decade of negotiation that finally made the Convention acceptable, and policy directions and issues for the U.S. in the post-Convention environment. This is an important new text in international law, international relations, and maritime affairs.

Editorial Reviews

"For many government officials and academics outside the United States like me, it is not easy to find a book so comprehensive and narrative on the development of the United States policy on the Law of the Sea covering the last four decades. There have been plenty of studies on numerous topics in the United States literatures on the Law of the Sea, but Galdorisi's and Vienna's study was perhaps one of the most comprehensive and thorough, covering practically all the topics that were or are of interests to the United States. It is, simply speaking, a book that must be studies by everyone, particularly by foreigners, in order to understand the United States perspectives."-Dr. Hasjim Djalal, Professor Ambassador-at-Large for the Law of the Sea and Maritime Affairs Memeber of Indonesian National Maritime Council
