The Enclosure of Ocean Resources

By Ross D. Eckert
Hoover Press, 1979
390 pp. $16.95

Eckert finds this trend commendable and in tune with economic realities. His book also discusses other aspects of the Law of the Sea and has little good to say about the treaty emerging from the present U.N. conference on that subject.
