about this item
International Polar Law brings together seminal articles and essays on the law of the polar regions. This single volume traces the historical development of polar law in the Arctic and Antarctic and then analyses in detail the specific legal regimes that have developed for both regions. Common elements assist in the assessment of recent and future developments in international polar law as it has evolved from a narrow legal discourse into one that reflects a significant body of international law for regions that have increasing importance in global affairs.With an original introduction by the editors, this collection will be a valuable resource for students, academics and practitioners.
