Rothwell: Islands and International Law

Donald R Rothwell
(Australian National Univ. - Law) has published Islands and International Law (Hart Publishing 2022). Here's the abstract:
Islands and their status in international law have become one of the more contentious issues in public international law. However, despite this, there is no contemporary book-length study on the question. This book fills that gap. Written by one of the world's leading public international lawyers, it offers an authoritative overview of how public international law operates in relation to islands. Key issues such as artificial islands, archipelagos, sovereignty, territorial rights, maritime entitlements, and governance are explored in depth. This will become a classic text in the field of international law.
