Summary:
"Tidalectics presents seminal historical texts alongside new research on one of the world's most important and currently threatened ecosystems--the oceans--by key voices whose work is deeply anchored in the oceanic space. These writers offer perspectives from a diverse range of disciplines, including art, law, geography, oceanography, architecture, anthropology, and Oceanian philosophy."--Page 4 of cover.
