About this book

Charles Covell examines the law of nations encountered in the work of major political thinkers from Vitoria to Hegel. He explains how these thinkers contributed to the current theories of natural law and just war and how they played a key role in the elaboration of the principles which are central to the modern system of the law of nations.
