'Written by eminent scholars and practitioners, this Handbook is an accessible treasure trove for diplomats as well as advocates, advanced scholars and law students, indeed anyone interested in the future of our oceans. I predict it will become an essential guidebook for all those involved in international ocean negotiations.' -- Kristina Gjerde, High Seas Policy Advisor, IUCN
'For diplomats, practitioners, and scholars concerned with the myriad threats facing our oceans, the Elgar Research Handbook on International Marine Environmental Law is a must. It contains enlightening analysis of the complex ocean governance problems that imperil the marine environment and continue to evade solution. More importantly, it advances realistic ideas to move the environmental protection of our oceans forward. All of this from some of the sharpest thinkers on these issues today.' -- Donald K. Anton, Griffith University, Australia
