Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea examines the rights and duties of states across a broad spectrum of maritime security threats. It provides comprehensive coverage of the different dimensions of maritime security in order to assess how responses to maritime security concerns are and should be shaping the law of the sea. The discussion sets out the rules regulating passage of military vessels and military activities at sea, law enforcement activities across the different maritime zones, information sharing and intelligence gathering, as well as armed conflict and naval warfare. In doing so, this book 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. This book argues that security interests should be given greater scope in our understanding of the law of the sea in light of the changing dynamics of exclusive and inclusive claims to ocean use. More flexibility may be required in the interpretation and application of the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea if appropriate responses to ensure maritime security are to be allowed.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Klein's approach throughout is rigorous, incorporates at each step deftly-balanced discussion of the existing literature and is written in a clear and accessible style. Maritime Security and the Law of the Sea thus represents an important contribution to a growing field and will be of interest to scholars and policy-makers alike. * Douglas Guilfoyle, Cambridge Law Journal *
...well-researched and well-written...It demonstrates keen insight not only into the practicalities of maritime security, but also into the legal weaknesses of the various treaty regimes. * Cameron A. Miles, British Yearbook of International Law *
This book is of equal use to both lawyers working on maritime/maritime security issues, as well as those working on policy or implementation issues, as it explains both perspectives (which may differ markedly) and how they fit together. * Andrew Forbes, Australian Journal of Maritime & Ocean Affairs *
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 *
In breaking down the component parts of the law of the sea and scrutinizing it through the lenses of maritime security, Prof. Klein provides us with a well-written and indispensable volume that aids in a more complete understanding of a complex body of law. * Maximo Q. Meija Jr. Journal of Maritime Affairs (World Maritime University) *
