Beschreibungen

This book is dedicated to the study of the islands and their role in a globalised world. Beside Coastal or Oceanic/Marine Geography, there is little comprehensive material about the speciality of small island geography so far. This volume aims to bridge natural, social and cultural science perspectives. In Geography of Small Islands readers learn about the physical development of islands, their cultural and political importance, as well as their economic particularities. This book appeals to researchers, students and scholars with an interest in the special characteristics in spatialities of islands.

She spent the last 25 years studying boundaries and Maritime Delimitation for Islands and became expert on impact of maritime delimitation processes and regional cultural development in islands.
