The regime under which humankind has governed its uses of the ocean is in the process of change-shifting away from the traditional freedom of the seas toward a aEUROoemixedaEURO system in which most of the valuable near-shore resources come under coastal jurisdiction. The transition to a new regime has been difficult for many states, most notably Japan, whose rights to use the entire ocean were well protected by the traditional regime. Japan's response to the need to develop a modern ocean policy- to adapt to the emerging ocean management regime-is the subject of this multiauthor volume. U.S. and Japanese scholars look at what Japan is doing, how, and with what results. They first assess general trends in ocean management, then examine the role of Japan in the international political economy of the oceans, and finally look at Japan's ocean policy in various sectors: shipbuilding, fisheries, mineral resources, offshore petroleum, and nuclear power generation. Given Japan's importance in ocean affairs, the authors point out that the lessons that can be learned from its experience are of prime international importance.
