These collected essays examine different aspects of the modern law of the sea. They address many key provisions in the United Convention on the Law of the Sea, including its historical development, the substantive rules governing navigation, resources, the regime of the high seas, maritime jurisdiction, the protection of the marine environment and the delimitation of maritime boundaries, as well as the settlement of disputes. The essays also review the Implementation Agreement of 1994 concerning deep seabed mining and the Implementation Agreement of 1995 concerning Straddling and Highly Migratory Fish Stocks. The author presents purely personal views on many negotiations and cases in which he participated. The essays, written between 1988 and 2006, will be of interest to everyone involved in the law of the sea. Davis Anderson is a former legal adviser to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (1960-1996) and judge of the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (1996-2005).

"A remarkable account of Britain's last stand in Kenya. This is imperial history at its very best."--John Hope Franklin In "a gripping narrative that is all but impossible to put down" (Joseph C. Miller), Histories of the Hanged exposes the long-hidden colonial crimes of the British in Kenya. This groundbreaking work tells how the brutal war between the colonial government and the insurrectionist Mau Mau between 1952 and 1960 dominated the final bloody decade of imperialism in East Africa. Using extraordinary new evidence, David Anderson puts the colonial government on trial with eyewitness testimony from over 800 court cases and previously unseen archives. His research exonerates the Kikuyu rebels; hardly the terrorists they were thought to be; and reveals the British to be brutal aggressors in a "dirty war" that involved leaders at the highest ranks of the British government. This astonishing piece of scholarship portrays a teetering colonial empire in its final phase; employing whatever military and propaganda methods it could to preserve an order that could no longer hold.
My experience and journey has been long and tiresome, living out of a suit case from age 22. After my mom passed away, I was set on a journey that took me to over 45 states and three world countries. My constant companions were trial and error. Everything I touched turned to gold, but always seemed to slip through my hands. I am a praying man. When things went well I would stray from my Godly walk and when storms came I would run to God. I abandoned God because I did not want to lose my friends and people who were close to me. In the end they left me high and dry.

David Anderson has been a popular columnist in his parish for many years. Writing about his everyday experiences—like cleaning up the yard after a storm, waiting in the doctor's office, even helping his teenage daughters pick out fall dresses—he explores how the divine surprises us in these ordinary events. Breakfast Epiphanies is a collection of forty-one of these true-life tales. "I wish David Anderson had written Breakfast Epiphanies twenty years ago. Reading it then would have made me a better person, parent, and pastor. In any event, I'm glad it's here now. And I bet you will be too." —Philip Gulley, author of Front Porch Tales "This is a delightful book, wise without being precious; entertaining without being trivial . . . Readers of almost any persuasion should enjoy Anderson's affable company." —June Sawyers, Booklist "D. H. Lawrence once called wonder our sixth sense, a natural religious sense. Anderson's tutorial on this spiritual practice is refreshing." —Spirituality & Health
