David Attard (International Maritime Law Institute), Malgosia Fitzmaurice (Queen Mary, Univ. of London - Law), & Norman A. Martinez Gutierrez (International Maritime Law Institute) have published The IMLI Manual on International Maritime Law. Volume I: The Law of the Sea (Oxford Univ. Press 2014). Here's the abstract:
Volume I: The Law of the Sea addresses the major issues which arise in the law of the sea. It provides a detailed understanding of the historical development of the law of the sea; the role of the International Maritime Organization; the law surrounding maritime zones; the legal regime of islands; the international sea-bed area; the legal regime governing marine scientific research; the rights and obligations of land-locked and geographically disadvantaged states; the legal regime of Arctic and Antarctic; and the settlements of disputes. This volume also considers the ways in which human rights and the law of the sea interact.
