Chapter Summary

This appendix presents lists of alleged historic bays. It is noted that such ?listings' by post-war commentators vary quite considerably, several including bays which others omit, which in itself points up the selectivity of such supposed ?historic' examples of maritime claims. Scovazzi et al., for example, point out in their Foreword that decisions of the US Supreme Court were omitted in that work "since these decisions are probably not relevant for the external relations of the [US]". Also the UN Juridical Regime omits giving a list, stating that even a centralised international registration system of historic claims might prove to be impracticable. It may be noted again that the Alexander Archipelago off SE Alaska does not feature as an example of historic waters in any of these listings.

Keywords: historic bays; maritime claims; UN Juridical Regime; US Supreme Court
