This bibliography is a convenient one-volume research guide that covers the most important scholarly literature to date on ocean policies, law, and public policy. Prepared alongside the "Handbook on Ocean Politics and Law" (1992) published by Greenwood Press, this bibliography gives a succinct summary of the basic sources of information on the subject and then arranges 2081 entries into twelve chapters on the following subjects: the physical features of the world's oceans, international conferences on the uses of the oceans, development of international principles, living resources, non-living resources, deep seabed mining, marine pollution and environmental protection, regional arrangements for environmental protection, military uses of the oceans, navigation and shipping, scientific research and technology transfer, and the major players at UNCLOS III and their positions on key issues.

Entries selected for annotation include the most significant studies of ocean law and politics, the most timely material, works that represent different authors and viewpoints broadly, and discussions with different perspectives from a historical standpoint. The bibliography covers the major works on the subject for college, university, institutional, and public libraries, and is easily accessible with author and subject indexes for use by students, experts, and the general public.
