Papadakis, International Law of the Sea: A Bibliography 3708. In an age of limited wars and constant disputes over territory or natural resources naval power has proved a conveniently flexible means of dealing with conflict situations. The need for legality in the eyes of world opinion, coupled with the incertainties of international law, have made legal considerations a central factor in naval strategy and tactics. As an ideological battleground, morover, international law provides opportunities both for conflict and for adroit manipulation of conflicts so that, properly exploited, it becomes itself a weapon in the naval armoury." -from the dust jacket.
