Summary
"The appearance in 1758 of Droit des gens, or The Law of Nations, established its author, Emer de Vattel, as a major authority on natural jurisprudence, and his book quickly became the most important work on international law in the eighteenth century. A philosopher, jurist, and diplomat, Vattel (1714-1767) sought to adapt the humanist heritage of Swiss politics to the realities of a modern economy."--BOOK JACKET; development of international law; includes information on colonisation; Indigenous peoples of America; sovereignty; execution of the treaty of peace
