Summary

"International law has been traditionally handicapped by, among other things, an abusive use of certain of its institutions and by the invocation of these institutions in irrelevant cases with a view to covering under handy terms situations which have had very little to do with justice and order. This state of affairs has contributed to the confusion regarding the limits of various rights of international law, to say nothing of the harm done to this law. This book attempts to correct this situation insofar as the doctrine of hot pursuit is concerned. It proposes a general theory of the right of hot pursuit in international law and places this right within its proper legal confines." "In three Parts the author examines the right of hot pursuit on land, in the international law of the sea, and in international air law. He critically analyzes the development of the right, its present status and position in the future. Hence, solutions are proposed to present problems of international law in connection with the right of hot pursuit, as well as to problems which may arise in the future. Thus, the doctrine of hot pursuit is placed within the framework of modern international law and examined in the light of recent developments. These extensively discussed developments include not only consideration of the right of hot pursuit in connection with guerilla warfare techniques and conflicts not amounting to war, but also all recent evolutions in the international law of the sea, including, inter alia, problems appertaining to fisheries, exploration and exploitation of the continental shelf, pirate radiostations, and pollution of the sea. In addition, the right of hot pursuit in international air law is examined in connection with all modern situations, for instance, recent interception techniques of intruding aircraft, contiguous air space limits, hi-jacking of aircraft and air piracy."--BOOK JACKET.
