Sharing the World's Resources

Sharing the World's Resources

By Oscar Schachter

Columbia University Press, 1976, 144 pp.

The many senses of "equity" and their relation to entitlements and national interests provide a major theme of this enlightening exploration. Legal learning, a philosophical turn of mind, and years in the United Nations equip Professor Schachter to deal equally well with justice and political acceptability in such matters as oceans, food, raw materials and the environment.
