The Laws of War

The founder of the modern idea that the destructiveness of war could be limited by law, Hugo Grotius, wrote his great work during the Thirty Years War. It was taken up again during the Enlightenment by theorists like Vattel and reached its pinnacle in the 20th century with the Hague and Geneva Conventions.
