Over the years, Douglas Johnston has written and edited a large body of literature on the subject of ocean boundary making. The "functionalist" approach to ocean boundary which he presents in this book is obviously the result of his careful accumulation of knowledge and experience over many years' involvement with the topic as researcher and writer. While at Dalhousie University in Halifax he had significant and direct involvement with the Ocean Studies Program.
