Abstract
The article critiques the book "The Oxford Handbook of the History of International Law," edited by Bardo Fassbender and Anne Peters, focusing on the relationship between globalization and the law, as well as the reported efforts to overcome Eurocentrism in the history of international law. Author Robert Kolb and the rules governing the conduct of warfare outside of Europe are mentioned. The 1949 Geneva Conventions, slavery, and standards of civilization are also examined.
