Hugo Grotius and International Relations

From the seventeenth century onwards, Grotius's legal writing was known to Russian scholars and practitioners. By the early twentieth century, his place in the development of international law was accepted in the Russian textbooks on the subject, even if his actual works were not widely read; and the leading Russian publicist, F.F. Martens, accepted that the publication of De Jure Belli ac Pacis in 1625 had marked the emergence of international law as an ‘autonomous legal science’. However, only in 1956 was a complete translation of this book published in Russia. The Grotius quatercentenary (1983) was commemorated in the Soviet Union by a lengthy assessment of his place in the development of international legal doctrine.
