AS and Tier1 providers

Im in the process to learn how internet works under the scenes. I read various articles regarding Autonomous Systems (AS) and TIer1 providers but i still dont understand some areas.

I understand that each AS is "peering" and advertises its network.
Does a TIER1 provider has also routers that advertise a network.
Does TIER1 gain an IP address space from IANA?

Also, is there any good book that cover all these areas?

Tier 1 network should have routing advertising.
