An Historical Account of Maritime Domination and Freedom Fulton is interested in two related themes: claims made to the sovereignty of the British Seas in the past and the evolution of its territorial waters in recent times. Though concerned primarily with fishing rights and the naval salute, Fulton addresses broader issues related to the freedom of commerce. The book falls into two sections. The first consists of an historic account of pretensions to the dominion of the sea, with an emphasis on the English and Dutch. The second looks at their influence on the legal treatment of territorial waters, especially in relation to the Law of Nations and fishing rights. With an extensive appendix of source readings. "In 1911, a lecturer on fishery problems at the University of Aberdeen, Thomas Wemyss Fulton, gave us probably the best history of the law of the sea that has ever been written." --D. H. N.
