Profit and principle : Hugo Grotius, natural rights theories and the rise of Dutch power in the East Indies, 1595-1615 by Martine Julia Van Ittersum( )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph is a study of the interaction of politics and political theory in The Netherlands and Asia in the early seventeenth century. Its focal point is the Dutch jurist Hugo Grotius (1583-1645), who developed his rights and contract theories for the benefit of the United Dutch East India Company or VOC. The monograph reconstructs the immediate historical context of his political thought, as conceptualized in his early manuscript De Jure Praedae/On the Law of Prize and Booty and Mare Liberum/The Free Sea (1609). It argues that Grotius' justification of Dutch interloping in the colonial empires of Spain and Portugal made possible the VOC's rise to power in the Malay Archipelago, which resulted in the slow, but steady, loss of selfdetermination on the part of the inhabitants of the Spice Islands

The free sea by Hugo Grotius( )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,062 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The freedom of the seas -- meaning both the oceans of the world and coastal waters -- has been among the most contentious issues in international law for the past four hundred years. The most influential argument in favour of freedom of navigation, trade, and fishing was that put forth by the Dutch theorist Hugo Grotius in his 1609 'Mare Liberum'. "The Free Sea" was originally published in order to buttress Dutch claims of access to the lucrative markets of the East Indies. It had been composed as the twelfth chapter of a larger work, "De Jure Praedae" ('On the Law of Prize and Booty'), which Grotius had written to defend the Dutch East India Company's capture in 1603 of a rich Portuguese merchant ship in the Straits of Singapore. This new edition publishes the only translation of Grotius's masterpiece undertaken in his own lifetime -- a work left in manuscript by the English historian and promoter of overseas exploration Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616). This volume also contains William Welwod's critque of Grotius (reprinted for the first time since the seventeenth century) and Grotius's reply to Welwod. Taken together, these documents provide an indispensable introduction to modern ideas of sovereignty and property as they emerged from the early-modern tradition of natural law. -- Back cover

The rights of war and peace : including the law of nature and of nations by Hugo Grotius( Book )

55 editions published between 1814 and 2017 in English and Latin and held by 1,025 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in Paris in Latin (1625), 'The Rights of War and Peace' laid the foundations of the modern system of public international law. Grotius addresses situations in which war is a legitimate instrument of law enforcement and outlines principles for the lawful use of armed force. Based on a Christian understanding of natural law, Grotius advanced the novel argument that his system would still be valid even if it lacked a divine basis. He pointed to the future by moving international law in a secular direction."--Back cover
Commentary on the law of prize and booty by Hugo Grotius( )

17 editions published between 1950 and 2006 in English and held by 947 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of Commentary on the Law of Prize and Booty is complex. When Grotius's personal papers were auctioned in The Hague in 1864, scholars discovered that Mare Liberum was just one chapter in a manuscript of 163 folios, written in justification of the capture of the Portuguese merchantman Santa Catarina in the Strait of Singapore in February 1603. Robert Fruin persuaded the scholar H.G. Hamaker to transcribe and publish it in 1868. Knud Haakonssen, the General Editor of the Natural Law and Enlightenment Classics series, states,?Grotius's work on the right of prize and booty is unusual. It has been argued in some of the most prominent recent scholarship that the work, while never published by Grotius himself, was the intellectual resource for much of his most important work. One chapter of the manuscript was used for his famous work on the free sea, Mare Liberum, and many of the most important features of his greatest work, De Jure Belli ac Pacis (The Rights of War and Peace), are either derived from, or revised versions of, the earlier writing."

The truth of the Christian religion by Hugo Grotius( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Multiple languages and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grotius's The Truth of the Christian Religion was first published in Leiden in 1627 in Latin. Written in plain and direct language for his countrymen, this short work aimed to show those who would encounter pagans, Muslims, and Jews that the Christian religion was the true revealed religion. In addition to "fortifying" the beliefs of his fellow Christians, the treatise intended to convince non-Christians of "the reasonableness of believing and embracing the Christian Religion above any other."--
