In this mementous work Grotius describes situations in whichwar is a valid tool of law enforcement and outlinesprinciples for the use of force. Though based on Christiannatural law, Grotius advances the novel argument that hissystem would still be valid if it lacked a divine basis. Inregard he points to the future by moving international lawin a secular direction. Barksdale's edition "is perceived tobe part of a larger movement in England aimed partly atsetting out an ideological alternative to reformationproposals under discussion and to clarifying the relationsbetween civil and ecclesiastical authority in England".Reprinted by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd.Distributed by William S.
