International Law in the Long Nineteenth Century gathers ten studies that reflect the ever-growing variety of themes and approaches that scholars from different disciplines bring to the historiography of international law in the period. Three themes are explored: 'international law and revolutions' which reappraises the revolutionary period as crucial to understanding the dynamics of international order and law in the nineteenth century. In 'law and empire', the traditional subject of nineteenth-century imperialism is tackled from the perspective of both theory and practice. Finally, 'the rise of modern international law', covers less familiar aspects of the formation of modern international law as a self-standing discipline. Contributors are: Camilla Boisen, Raphaël Cahen, James Crawford, Ana Delic, Frederik Dhondt, Andrew Fitzmaurice, Vincent Genin, Viktorija Jakjimovska, Stefan Kroll, Randall Lesaffer, and Inge Van Hulle.
