About the book: This book adds to the existing knowledge on the over 100 offshore small islands around the mainland of Sri Lanka, varying in size from the largest Mannar Island to the smallest Sinigama and Werallaiya. The articles raise many questions of legal, historical, geographical and environmental import especially in the contemporary era of rising concerns over global climate change which will have direct impact on small islands through the warming of oceans and sea level rise affecting coastlines. The book also looks at inland islands teeming with biodiversity, found in lagoons and rivers.
