Mónica García-Salmones Rovira

  • Features a thought-provoking analysis of how economic liberalism came to be the dominant political force in international law
  • Shows the role of positivism in promoting and justifying colonialism and economic exploitation
  • Innovatively reassesses the roles of Hans Kelsen and Lassa Oppenheim as the founding fathers of international legal positivism, in light of the world in which they worked
