Stephen C. Neff. Justice among nations: a history of international law. Harvard University Press, 2014.

KZ1242.N44 2014

 

Written for the lay reader, this engaging history traces the origins of international law all the way back to the ancient civilizations of India and Mesopotamia. As Neff observes, the notion of international law as a code established by charter or convention is a relatively recent phenomenon, but the idea of justice in dealings between nations is nearly as old as recorded history itself. 

 

 

 

 

Sharon Weill. The role of national courts in applying international humanitarian law. Oxford University Press, 2014.

KZ6471.W45 2014

 

Drawing on a number of case studies from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Italy, and Israel, Weill examines the different ways that international humanitarian law is applied in national courts, from the “apologist” role of courts that serve to legitimize state abuses, to the “utopian” approach that extends protections for individual rights beyond the requirements of the law.
