History and theory of international law. Oxford scholarship online.
This text investigates the intellectual history of the laws of war. It reconstructs the distinctive ways of thinking about the legal regulation of war in history, contrasts these to more familiar just war and realist approaches, and shows how closely connected they have been to the process of spelling out the nature, function, and powers of state sovereignty.
