This ambitious 2005 volume is a history of war, from the standpoint of international law, from the beginning of history to the present day. Its primary focus is on legal conceptions of war as such, rather than on the substantive or technical aspects of the law of war. It tells the story, in narrative form, of the interplay, through the centuries, between, on the one hand, legal ideas about war and, on the other hand, state practice in warfare. Its coverage includes reprisals, civil wars, UN enforcement and the war on terrorism. This book will interest historians, students of international relations and international lawyers.

Vattel, Emmerich de; Joseph Chitty (editor). The Law of Nations; or Principles of the Law of Nature, Applied to the Conduct and Affairs of Nations and Sovereigns.

Johnson, 1854. lxvi, 656 pp. Reprinted 2005 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. 2004. ISBN-13: 978-1-58477-501-0. ISBN-10: 1-58477-501-7. Cloth. $125.* Chitty [1776-1841], the distinguished English legal scholar, produced this edition of Vattel's classic study to bring it to the attention of a wider audience. "[I]t is of infinitely more extended utility, he observed, because it "contains a practical collection of ethics, principles, and rules of conduct to be observed and pursued, as well by private individuals as by states, and these of the utmost practical importance to the well-being, happiness, and ultimate and permanent advantage and benefit of all mankind." It should therefore be studied "by every gentleman of liberal education, and by youth, in whom the best moral principles should be inculcated. The work should be familiar in the Universities, and in every class above the inferior ranks of society. And, as regards lawyers, it contains the clearest rules of construing private contracts, and respecting Admiralty and Insurance law.": Preface v.

Lorimer, James. The Institutes of the Law of Nations: A Treatise of the Jural Relations of Separate Political Communities. Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1883, 1884. Two volumes. Reprint available January 2005 by the Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN 1-58477-516-5. Cloth. $250. * Lorimer [1818-1890] was Regius Professor of Public Law at the University of Edinburgh and a founder of the Institute of International Law. Critical of utilitarianism, he proposed a system of public international law based on the law of nature. It is most notable, however, for its elitism, racism and support of colonialism. Since he believed in a hierarchy of nations based on cultural attainment, he rejected the principle of comity in international relations as a sufficient basis for international law. He used this point to defend the right of "civilized" nations to ignore the sovereignty of their "primitive" counterparts. Influential in Europe, this treatise offered a sophisticated argument that stoked the ambitions of continental imperialists.
