Marine Management in Disputed Areas
The Case of the Barents Sea
Published June 4th 1992 by Routledge – 192 pages
This book examines the complicated management of the Barents Sea, offering a detailed analysis of two highly sensitive legal disputes - the maritime boundary dispute between Norway and the USSR, and the dispute over the Treaty of Spitsbergen.
`One of the most important merits of this book is undoubtedly its clear presentation of legal issues, making them also accessible to others than the legally trained. At the same time this has not led to a simplification of the issues at hand which are analysed in considerable detail … Furthermore, the book is very well documented.' - Journal of Marine and Coastal Law
`It is one of the most valuable features of the book under review that it connects the remote, unknown to a general reader, problems of the Barents Sea with the broader issues of international law … This book is a very valuable survey of an area of which the knowledge is rather limited. The book is very well documented and erudite in the presentation of the general problems of international law. It may be recommended to all readers interested in the management of maritime areas.' - International and Comparative Law Quarterly
`This is an admirable book for its qualities of clarity, detail and comprehensiveness. It is also far more than a study of the Barents Sea; throughout, the authors explain and apply principles of international law which are so well exemplified in this important and complex region.' - Maritime Policy Management
