Abstract

This is a brief review of The Oxford Handbook of the History of International Law, edited by Bardo Fassbender and Anne Peters (2012). In this volume, the editors explicitly seek to map a path "towards a global history of international law." By any measure, the book is a substantial achievement, and it will be widely and rewardingly consulted for many years to come. Yet even with all the knowledge assembled in its thousand-plus pages, the Handbook is unable to accomplish in full what it set out to achieve.

Keywords: history of international law, legal history

JEL Classification: K33
