About this Item: Forgotten Books, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Excerpt from The American Institute of International Law: Its Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Nations The American Institute of International Law, which met at Washington in connection with and under the auspices of the Second Pan American Scientific Congress, adopted on January 6, 1916, a Declaration of the Rights and Duties of Nations. The Declaration differs from other projects of a like kind in that it is not based solely, or indeed at all, upon philosophic principles, but is based exclusively upon decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States. It is therefore fair to say that the principles of the Declaration are, as far as the United States is concerned, the law of the land, and an examination of the practice of the other American countries shows that these principles obtain in each of the American Republics, so that the Declaration is in reality a statement of the fundamental principles of international law, as they are understood in the New World. At the tenth annual meeting of the American Society of International Law, held in Washington, D. C., on April 26, 1916, the Honorable Elihu Root, President of the Society, de voted his opening address to a consideration of the Declara tion, its principles, and their importance.* During the session of the American Institute, the under signed, who happens to be its President, delivered a series of addresses dealing largely with the ideas contained in the pre amble of the Declaration, without which it is incomplete. It has been thought advisable to print the series of addresses, just referred to, in connected form, as an introduction to the Declaration, and to follow it with the official commentary, which the Institute adopted at one and the same time with the text of the Declaration.

About this Item: Gale Ecco, Print Editions, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The 18th century was a wealth of knowledge, exploration and rapidly growing technology and expanding record-keeping made possible by advances in the printing press. In its determination to preserve the century of revolution, Gale initiated a revolution of its own: digitization of epic proportions to preserve these invaluable works in the largest archive of its kind. Now for the first time these high-quality digital copies of original 18th century manuscripts are available in print, making them highly accessible to libraries, undergraduate students, and independent scholars.This collection reveals the history of English common law and Empire law in a vastly changing world of British expansion. Dominating the legal field is the Commentaries of the Law of England by Sir William Blackstone, which first appeared in 1765. Reference works such as almanacs and catalogues continue to educate us by revealing the day-to-day workings of society.++++The below data was compiled from various identification fields in the bibliographic record of this title.

About this Item: COSIMO CLASSICS, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. The Rights of War and Peace establishes a system of international law based on the concept of natural law. Natural law, as Grotius describes it, is law that applies to all people, regardless of country or nationality. This law establishes concepts like justifiable war and natural justice. Grotius discusses situations under which countries should go to war, and then further explains the proper way in which wars should be prosecuted. There are, he says, certain rules in warfare that must be observed, regardless of whether the parties involved have signed any specific agreement to do so. Philosophy and law students, as well as those with an interest in international politics, will be amazed at how modern many of Grotius s ideas seem and intrigued by this foray into international law that still has repercussions in the world today. HUGO GROTIUS (1583-1645) was born in the city of Delft in the Dutch Republic. Astoundingly intelligent, he entered the University of Leiden at age eleven and graduated at age fifteen. He was a philosopher and Christian apologist now remembered for his work in establishing a philosophical basis for international law. Seller Inventory # LIE9781602068070

About this Item: London: Edward Lumley, 1835, 1835. Octavo. Original green cloth, paper label to spine printed in black, yellow endpapers. Ownership signature of Walter Bagehot to title page, dated 11 March 1844, and light pencil annotation to rear free endpaper. Bound without the final leaf of publisher's advertisements. Extremities lightly rubbed and a few marks to boards, small bump to fore edge of rear board, paper label chipped and browned, front hinge cracked but holding, a very good copy. Later edition of the Scottish politician and jurist's famous public lecture on international law, first published in 1799. "In November 1798 Mackintosh proposed a lecture series to the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn in which he would make public his change of opinion towards Burke. However, like Burke, certain benchers remained wary of a speaker previously associated with Jacobinism. As a result Mackintosh rushed A Discourse on the Law of Nature and Nations, which contained the substance of his first lecture, through the press. It was well received, eliciting a complimentary response from another former object of his criticism, William Pitt. After some canvassing on Mackintosh's behalf by George Canning—then speaker of the Commons and, despite political differences, a friend from the early 1790s—and an intervention from Lord Loughborough, he was given permission to deliver the lectures between February and June 1799" (ODNB). This was the copy of political commentator, economist, and journalist Walter Bagehot, best known for his analysis of the Bank of England in Lombard Street (1873) and described by Lord Bryce as "the most original mind of his generation".

About this Item: Adams writes, ÒIs any Law universal, but the law of our natures, written on our hearts, and obligatory on all Men from their beginning and through all their dispersions?Ó; while the Declaration cites "The Laws of Nature and of NatureÕs God.ÓUnthinking allegiance to one nation - which would negate the right to revolution - results in Òa degrading Superstition and an unrelenting Despotism.Ó He argues his case in a letter to Attorney General Richard Rush, also stating that he supports prosecution of the ongoing War of 1812William Blackstone, the great English jurist, did not cause the American Revolution. But had he not published his monumental work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, in 1765, the Revolution might not have taken place when it did. His Commentaries was the Founding FathersÕ most important and widely-owned law book. John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Benjamin Franklin, and John Marshall all read the work and frequently cited it in their writings. Blackstone wrote, ÒThe principal aim of society is to protect individuals in the enjoyment of those absolute rights, which were vested in them by the immutable laws of natureÉThe rights of the people of EnglandÉmay be reduced to three principal or primary articles; the right of personal security, the right of personal liberty; and the right of private propertyÉÓ BlackstoneÕs clearly-stated emphasis on the rights of individuals was of particular importance in formulating and defending the case for armed resistance to King George III and his Parliament. The first important case undertaken by John Adams, the one that made him famous, was his defense of British soldiers charged with murder for their role in the Boston Massacre. And in that defense he relied on BlackstoneÕs Formulation, which states ÒIt better that ten guilty persons escape, than that one innocent party suffer.Ó Adams argued, ÒIt is more important that innocence should be protected, than it is, that guilt be punished; for guilt and crimes are so frequent in this world, that all of them cannot be punished.when innocence itself, is brought to the bar and condemned, especially to die, the subject will exclaim, 'it is immaterial to me whether I behave well or ill, for virtue itself is no security.' And if such a sentiment as this were to take hold in the mind of the subject that would be the end of all security whatsoever.ÓJohn Adams was on the committee of the Continental Congress that drafted the Declaration of Independence. The documents was worded: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.Ó The philosophy of the Declaration, asserting the "self-evident" "unalienable Rights" of people granted by "the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God" almost surely came from Blackstone's description of the rights of Englishmen under the unwritten British Constitution. The indictment against the Crown, the bulk of the Declaration, recites many of the absolute rights of individuals covered by Blackstone including the prohibition of taxation without consent. But Blackstone, though the source point for the rights enumerated by the Declaration, was himself not a revolutionary. He articulated a theory that under common a person owed perpetual allegiance to the country of his birth, no matter what. Adams and the American Founding Fathers did not see eye to eye with Blackstone on this, in fact they stake. Seller Inventory # 11635
