The author discusses the various great waterways of the world, with particular emphasis on the canals, from both a legal and historical point of view. Citing relevant treaties and cases, he examines the administration of the interoceanic canals and continues with a restatement, in codified form, of the existing law regulating these arteries and an analysis of the feasibility of international administration. The book is copiously documented and will be of great use to international lawyers, shipping companies, government officials and those concerned with the history and present condition of international waterways.
