In this book, the exposition of the Common Heritage of Humanity as a fundamental principle of international law gives a view of the ""deep blue sea"", which the author describes through the politics of international ocean law and policy. The book argues why - and how - the Common Heritage principle is an important ingredient in any global programme for sustainable development. This work offers an intellectual and moral challenge to legal philosophers and practitioners alike, in the ocean arena and beyond.
