Studies in the History of International Law


Studies in the History of International Law is a peer-reviewed book series that publishes books on the history of international law in the broadest possible sense, without any restrictions in terms of geography or chronology. The series includes studies on the law governing relations between independent body politics, from whatever denomination or civilization. It does not reduce the field to the study of the antecedents, the emergence and evolution of international law as it was formed from the Late Middle Ages onwards in Western Europe.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to either the series editor Randall Lesaffer or the publisher at BRILL, Wendel Scholma.

This is a subseries of the Legal History Library.

Studies in the History of International Law aspires at offering a forum for all scholars working on the history of international law regardless of their perspective, from truly historical studies on doctrines and practices of the past to works of theory of international law, heavily relying on historical argument. It publishes works of scholars from several constituencies, primarily international lawyers and legal historians, but also diplomatic historians, international relations specialists, legal philosophers and intellectual historians.
