In doing so, thisbook not only addresses traditional security concerns for naval power but also examines responses to contemporary maritime security threats, such as terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, piracy, drug-trafficking, environmental damage and illegal fishing.While the protection of sovereignty and national interests remain fundamental to maritime security and the law of the sea, there is increasing acceptance of a common interest that exists among states when seeking to respond to a variety of modern maritime security threats.

Editorial Reviews

"It is a welcome addition to the voluminous Law of the Sea (LOS) literature, given its pithy but comprehensive portrayal of the intersection between maritime law and post 9-11 security concerns" --ASIL
