In The Iran-UAE Gulf Islands Dispute, Luciana Ricart and Charles Buderi take the reader and history students on a journey through centuries of Gulf history and evolving principles of international law on territorial disputes to reach conclusions over the rightful sovereign of 3 Gulf islands – Tunbs and the Abu Musa – claimed by both the United Arab Emirates and Iran. Drawing on a wide range of scholarly works and archival documents from sources as diverse as the Ottoman Empire, the Dutch East India Company, and the British Government. Ricart and Buderi analyze historical events from antiquity up to modern times. Ultimately, the authors reach conclusions on the ownership of the islands under international law which challenge the positions of both parties.
