War and Competition between States

This chapter examines the connection between war and international law in Europe during the 16th and 18th centuries. It suggests that if international law aims at finding common rules for peacemaking and for the right to wage war, then a clear definition of those who are entitled to wage war and to make peace is required. It argues that one of the great achievements of international law was the exclusion of individual persons, corporations or semi-political associations from international relations.
