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 905 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( Book )
10 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 514 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
Commentary on the law of prize and booty by Hugo Grotius( Book )
35 editions published between 1635 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Commissioned in October 1604 by the United Dutch East India Company, Hugo Grotius's Commentary on the Law of Prize and Booty was intended to justify the Dutch capture in 1603 of a wealthy Portuguese merchantman, the Santa Catarina, in the Strait of Singapore. In a clever and intricate defense of international free trade, Grotius (1583-1645) introduced the notion of a man as a sovereign and free individual with a right to self-defense and, by extension, the right of a company of private merchants to establish a trade empire."--Jacket

"De kroniek en geschiedenis van de Nederlandse oorlog' is een onbekend werk van de grote geleerde en staatsman Hugo de Groot (1583-1645). Het bevat een dwarse visie op de vroegste periode van de Tachtigjarige Oorlog. Dat was in de ogen van De Groot geen eendrachtige strijd om het geloof en de oude vrijheden, maar een moeizame worsteling met niet alleen het machtige Spanje, maar ook met politiek eigenbelang, verdeeldheid en religieus fanatisme aan Nederlandse kant. Om deze complexe en controversiële visie op de Opstand te verkondigen, nam De Groot de denktrant en markante stijl van de bekende Romeinse geschiedschrijver Tacitus als voorbeeld. Zijn opdrachtgevers, de Staten van Holland, zagen ervan af om het werk te publiceren; het verscheen uiteindelijk pas een halve eeuw later. Jan Waszink tekent voor de vertaling van het eerste deel van 'de Kroniek' (tot het begin van Maurits' regering in 1588) in hedendaags Nederlands, met behoud van de unieke stijl van De Groots politiek-literaire experiment."--Adapted from cover
