SHIPOWNERS, MARINERS AND THE NEW LAW OF THE SEA

This book is aimed at everyone concerned with the effects the New Law of the Sea might have on traditional users of the world's oceans. The report contains an analytical study of the Revised Informal Single Negotiating Text produced at the end of the fourth session of the UNCLOS Conference in New York in May, 1976, and examines the possible implications for the shipping industry, whose needs appear to be in danger of becoming overlooked in favour of the numerous political issues involved. Included are (1) changes in the mariner's profession (2) the development of the international law of the sea (3) the first United Nations Conference (4) redefinition of the "high seas" concept (5) restrictions on merchant vessels (6) the threat to innocent passage and (7) the problem of position finding.
