Abstract

This essay presents a reading of International Law and its Others: a book of writings, edited by Anne Orford, concerned to probe the many ways in which an 'other' to international law is 'figured, performed, inscribed and imagined in the discipline'. What the book calls forth, in this essay's account, is a series of disagreements among some of the most interesting and challenging writers on international law working today. This essay seeks to draw some of those disagreements into sharper relief.

Keywords: international law, legal theory
