The Enclosure of Ocean Resources
The Enclosure of Ocean Resources
By Ross D. Eckert
Hoover Press, 1979, 390 pp

The "enclosure" movement is the gradual shift from narrow territorial waters to the now generally accepted 200-mile limit for exploitation of ocean resources. 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.
