In view of the short term and the long term international instability which may be generated by the militarization of outer space, the polar zones, or the oceans, it is imperative that the prescriptions of international law affecting military utilization of such areas be thoroughly examined in order to determine if adequate and effective restrictions or limitations on such activities exist. This study will initiate and hopefully stimulate continuing interest in such an examination by scrutinizing the international legal prescriptions which affect various military uses of the high seas.
