About this Title:

This “Enhanced Edition” of Grotius’s famous work on the law of war contains a number of supplementary essays and a selection of chapters from Grotius’s book which are designed to help the reader get a better understanding of this important political and legal theorist. The supplementary material includes two introductions to different editions of his book, a biographical essay by his 18th century translator, and the “Liberty Matters” online discussion forum on Grotius’s views. This is followed by Grotius’s “Preliminary Discourse” on natural law and a selection of chapters from the book which deal with the nature of war, when it is just to go to war, when it is unjust to go war, and how war might be moderated once it has been declared. This Enhanced Edition is only available in PDF, epub, and Kindle ebook formats.
