The gentle civilizer of nations : the rise and fall of international law, 1870-1960 by Martti Koskenniemi( Book )

52 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

International law was born from the impulse to 'civilize' late nineteenth-century attitudes towards race and society, argues Martti Koskenniemi in this extensive study of the rise and fall of modern international law. In a work of wide-ranging intellectual scope, now available for the first time in paperback, Koskenniemi traces the emergence of a liberal sensibility relating to international matters in the late nineteenth century, and its subsequent decline after the Second World War. He combines legal analysis, historical and political critique and semi-biographical studies of key figures (including Hans Kelsen, Hersch Lauterpacht, Carl Schmitt and Hans Morgenthau); he also considers the role of crucial institutions (the Institut de droit international, the League of Nations). His discussion of legal and political realism at American law schools ends in a critique of post-1960 'instrumentalism'. This book provides a unique reflection on the possibility of critical international law today
From apology to utopia : the structure of international legal argument by Martti Koskenniemi( Book )

59 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing from a range of materials, Martti Koskenniemi demonstrates how international law becomes vulnerable to the contrasting criticisms of being either an irrelevant moralist Utopia or a manipulable facade for State interests. He examines the conflicts inherent in international law--sources, sovereignty, 'custom' and 'world order--and shows how legal discourse about such subjects can be described in terms of a small number of argumentative rules. Originally published in English in Finland in 1989, this reissue includes a newly written Epilogue by the author."--Publisher's website
The Cambridge companion to international law by James Crawford( Book )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This intellectually rigorous introduction to international law encourages readers to engage with multiple aspects of the topic: as 'law' directing and shaping its subjects; as a technique for governing the world of states and beyond statehood; and as a framework within which several critical and constructivist projects are articulated. The articles situate international law in its historical and ideological context and examine core concepts such as sovereignty, jurisdiction and the state. Attention is also given to its operation within international institutions and in dispute settlement, and a separate section is devoted to international law's 'projects': protecting human rights, eradicating poverty, the conservation of resources, the regulation of international trade and investment and the establishment of international order. The diverse group of contributors draws from disciplinary orientations ranging from positivism to postmodernism to ensure that this book is informed theoretically and politically, as well as grounded in practice"--

International law and religion : historical and contemporary perspectives( Book )

7 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This books maps out the territory of international law and religion challenging receiving traditions in fundamental aspects. On the one hand, the connection of international law and religion has been little explored. On the other, most of current research on international legal thought presents international law as the very victory of secularization. By questioning that narrative of secularization this book approaches these traditions from a new perspective. From the Middle Ages' early conceptualizations of rights and law to contemporary political theory, the chapters bring to life debates concerning the interaction of the meaning of the legal and the sacred. The contributors approach their chapters from an array of different backgrounds and perspectives but with the common objective of investigating the mutually shaping relationship of religion and law. The collaborative endeavour that this volume offers makes available substantial knowledge on the question of international law and religion

Unitas multiplex unités et fragmentations en droit international by Mario Prost( Book )

6 editions published in 2013 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La " fragmentation " est devenue une métaphore fondamentale, bien que controversée, de la doctrine du droit international à l'ère de la globalisation. Le concept d'unité, qui se situe au cœur du débat sur la fragmentation, n'a pourtant fait l'objet à ce jour d'aucune véritable mise en perspective théorique. Le plus souvent, le concept est utilisé de manière intuitive, sans être véritablement explicité. Le présent ouvrage s'emploie à dissiper ce flou théorique et aborde du point de vue de la philosophie du droit les possibles significations du concept d'unité dans le champ du droit internatio

The law of international lawyers : reading Martti Koskenniemi by W. G Werner( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"For decades, Martti Koskenniemi has not just been an influential writer in international law; his work has caused a significant shift in the direction of the field. This book engages with some of the core questions that have animated Koskenniemi's scholarship so far. Its chapters attest to the breadth and depth of Koskenniemi's oeuvre and the different ways in which he has explored these questions. Koskenniemi's work is applied to a wide range of functional areas in international law and discussed in relation to an even broader range of theoretical perspectives, including history, political theory, sociology and international relations theory. These invaluable insights have been expertly brought together by the volume editors, who identify the key and common themes of many of the book's contributions. This volume demonstrates the importance of critical legal scholarship in the ways international law is enacted, shaped and reshaped over time."--Résumé de l'éditeur
