Advance praise: 

'This book provides comprehensive and up-to-date coverage of a central topic in international law. It goes beyond the traditional subjects covered in the law of the sea to include contemporary and important maritime issues, such as the conservation of marine biological diversity and the maintenance of international peace and security at sea. Presented in a simple, yet precise, manner, it will equip the reader with an understanding of all of the key issues in the law of the sea, as well as an appreciation of the challenges which still lie ahead for the subject.' James Harrison, University of Edinburgh 

'Professor Tanaka has written an excellent exposition of the law of the sea which offers both comprehensive coverage of key Conventions and agreements and analysis of pertinent judicial opinions and State practice. I very warmly encourage all students of this area of the law, to rely on this book in their further study of the topic.' Duncan French, University of Sheffield
