This three-volume Manual on International Maritime Law presents a systematic analysis of the history and contemporary development of international maritime law by leading contributors from across the world. Prepared in cooperation with the International Maritime Law Institute, the International Maritime Organization's research and training institute, this a uniquely comprehensive study of this fundamental area of international law. Volume III is devoted to The Marine Environmental Law and Maritime Security Law. The first part of Volume III deals in depth with the issues of most fundamental importance in the contemporary world, namely how to protect the marine environment from pollution from ships, pollution from land-based sources, pollution from seabed activities, and pollution from or through air. In explaining these types of pollution, various conventions concluded under the auspices of the IMO (such as MARPOL 73/78 and the 1972 London Convention) and soft law documents are analyzed. The Volume also includes chapters on the conventions relating to pollution incident preparedness, response, cooperation, and the relevance of regional cooperation. This Volume additionally discusses liability and compensation for pollution damage. The second part of Volume II, dedicated to Maritime Security law, includes chapters dealing with piracy; stowaways; human trafficking; illicit drugs; terrorism; military uses of the sea; and new maritime security threats.
