A Critical Edition and Translation of De Armis Romanis

Alberico Gentili
Edited by Benedict Kingsbury, Benjamin Straumann, and David Lupher

  • The first English translation of this classic work of international law, by one of its most influential figures
  • An important source of early-modern political thought, which provided the basis for many of the key questions of international law today
  • Presents both sides of the debate on the legality and justice of wars waged by the Romans, an approach which continues to influence modern debates about the morality of war
