Editorial Reviews

“The Legacy of Punishment in International Law interprets a significant transformation within ethical reasoning about war, the disappearance of the idea of punishment among states. It makes a valuable scholarly contribution not only on this specific question of punishment, but also to the larger discourse on rules and norms in the international system. This is an important read for anyone interested in just war or the role of norms in the international system.”--Amy E. Eckert, Metropolitan State College of Denver
