The Antarctic Treaty, set up in 1961 to provide a means for managing international relations in Antarctica, will be reviewed in 1991. This book considers the question of the region's future with the evergrowing international interest in the area as a source of important mineral resources. In this timely survey, a study group brought together by the David Davies Memorial Institute of International Studies looks at the political and environmental questions raised by the potentially conflicting interest in Antarctica: what are the stresses internal and external, on the Antarctica Treaty system, and can it develop to cope with them? If not, what is the likely political outlook for Antarctica? Together with The Antartic Treaty Regime, edited by Gillian Triggs(CUP, 1987), which describes the components of the Antartic Treaty System, Cambridge offers and authoritative basis for the study of the Antartic Treaty and its future.
