At the Third United Nations Conference on the Law of the Sea, the land-locked countries of the world, together with their geographically disadvantaged counterparts, made a determined effort to obtain special recognition in the Law of the Sea Convention. As members of the so-called LLGDS Group, they challenged the position of coastal States in several areas and introduced proposals which are yet to be fully assessed in the literature on the Law of the Sea. Published at a time when many intriguing questions on the Law of the Sea remain the subjects of intense controversy, this book charts the LLGDS effort at the UNCLOS III and critically examines the extent to which the 1982 Convention and the customary law reflects the perspective of the LLGDS Group. It also offers detailed consideration of many key issues in the law and politics of the sea.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`it is pleasing that this should be such a good book. It is well-written; the material is well arranged and discussed in an interesting and informed way.' Cambridge Law Journal
`The authoritative analysis, of particular value in relation to the provisions of the 1982 Convention, is written with great clarity and against the background of an intimate knowledge and understanding of the records of UNCLOS III. It can be unhesitatingly recommended to those seeking a reliable and searching account of this topic.' Lloyd's Maritime and Commercial Law Quarterly
`it is a credit to Vasciannie that he has accomplished this task with rigour and elegance ... [he] is to be warmly congratulated for this work. It is well written in a careful but lively style and the diverse and often difficult source materials are handled in a sensitve and scholarly way. This is a most welcome addition to the Oxford Monographs in International Law and to the literature on the law of the sea.' David Freestone, The British Year Book of International Law 1991
'This book is an excellent addition to the existing titles on the law of the sea contained in the Oxford Monographs series. There is much of interest here for the generalist in matters concerning the law of the sea, as well as for those particularly concerned with the position of LLGDS.' Catherine Redgwell, International and Comparative Law Quarterly, Vol. 41
'Although based entirely onb research, it displays some of the depth and real understanding of participants in the events described. Vasciannie is to be commended for producing such a fine and valuable study.' Martin Ira Glassner, Southern Connecticut State University, Chinese Yearbook of International Law and Affairs, Volume 10 (1990-91)
`Dr Vasciannie's book, which appears as part of the now fairly well-established Oxford Monographs in International Law series, brings a worthy dimension to these studies ... Vasciannie has produced an admirable study ... This book is a commendable study by a scholar who is quite clearly well-grounded in the subject. The style of presentation ensures that even technical arguments which might otherwise have been of immediate interest only to the specialist international lawyer are rendered easily readable even to the generalist. Indeed, it is a book that commends itself easily to teachers, students and practitioners of international law and relations, as well as the interested non-specialist reader.' Netherlands International Law Review
