At the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the land-locked countries of the world, together with their geographically disadvantaged counterparts, made a determined effort to obtain special recognition in the Law of the Sea Convention. As members of the so-called LLGDSGroup, they challenged the position of coastal States in several areas and introduced proposals which are yet to be fully assessed in the literature on the Law of the Sea. Published at a time when many intriguing questions on the Law of the Sea remain the subjects of intense controversy, this bookcharts the LLGDS effort at the UNCLOS III and critically examines the extent to which the 1982 Convention and the customary law reflects the perspective of the LLGDS Group. It also offers detailed consideration of many key issues in the law and politics of the sea.

Editorial Reviews

`Dr Vasciannie's book, which appears as part of the now fairly well-established Oxford Monographs in International Law series, brings a worthy dimension to these studies ... Vasciannie has produced an admirable study ... This book is a commendable study by a scholar who is quite clearlywell-grounded in the subject. The style of presentation ensures that even technical arguments which might otherwise have been of immediate interest only to the specialist international lawyer are rendered easily readable even to the generalist. Indeed, it is a book that commends itself easily toteachers, students and practitioners of international law and relations, as well as the interested non-specialist reader.'Netherlands International Law Review
