About this book

This book seeks to fill a gap in the existing literature by examining the role of African States in the development and establishment of the regime of the deep seabed beyond national jurisdiction (the Area) and the concept of the Common Heritage of Mankind.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Dr Edwin Egede’s book covers a geographical area and research theme that relatively few people working in Africa have the resources available to study at present. … as the exploration of the seabed increases throughout the world, this book will provide a useful basis for the background on the development of legislation concerning the ownership and exploitation of the seabed, legislation that is currently too narrowly concerned with oil extraction and sea minerals to the neglect of underwater cultural heritage.” (E. J. D. Pollard, Journal of Maritime Archaeology, Vol. 7, 2012)
