The Battle for International Law

South-North Perspectives on the Decolonization Era

Edited by Jochen von Bernstorff and Philipp Dann

The History and Theory of International Law

  • Provides a comprehensive analysis of South-North debates in international law in the 1950s to 1970s, one of the formative eras of international law
  • Brings into focus a perspective on the history of international law often overshadowed by focus on East-West tension during the Cold War
  • Explores the challenge to traditional Western perceptions of the international legal system brought by the newly independent States of this period, who contested its alleged universality and legitimacy
