(p.100) Book Two Nation to Nation Relations
The Last Waltz of the Law of Nations

Jean Allain

Oxford University Press

In Book Two, the emphasis of Rayneval’s text shifts from the development of the Nation and the internal dynamics of the State to consider the relationship between Nations via the Law of Nations. This Book considers the essence of the State, both in regard to independence and sovereignty. It provides an understanding of trade between Nations and of alliances and the European system of Balance of Power. Rayneval sets out a number of technical elements of the Law of Nations as well, including the acquisition of territory, of boundaries, of the treatment of foreigners, of the law of the sea, of reprisals, and of the titles and rank of diplomatic agents.

Keywords:   acquisition of territory, alliances, ambassadors, borders, diplomatic ranks, French diplomatic history, French foreign policy, foreign nationals, Joseph-Mathias Gérard de Rayneval, Law of Nations, law of the sea, diplomatic agents
