The Essentials of International Public Law and Organization

By Amos S. Hershey | Go to book overview
is the work of learned societies like the Institute of International Law.
2. The histories of International Relations, more particularly of wars, negotiations, and treaties. Such histories, though they should be used with the greatest caution, contain almost exhaustless stores of information bearing upon the development of the theory and practice of the Law of Nations. Especially important are the histories of diplomacy and International Law, like those of Flassen, Hill, Laurent, Walker, and Wheaton.16

See Flassen, Histoire générale de la diplomatie francaise ( 1811); Hill, History of Diplomacy in the Development of Europe ( 1905-06); Laurent, Études sur l'histoire de l'humanite ( 1865-80); Walker, History of the Law of Nations ( 1899); Wheaton, History of the Law of Nations ( 1845).

Some authorities lay stress upon the importance of Roman Law as a source of International Law. See, e.g. Creasy, First Platform of Int. Law ( 1876), 83- 86; 1 Halleck ( Baker's 3d ed.), 57 f. .; Maine, Ancient Law ( Pollock ed.), 92 ff. (Cf. Int. Law, 20 ff.) and notes in Appendix, 396 ff.; 1 Phillimore, §§ xxxviii-xl. But whatever value it may have originally possessed as the source from which Grotius and others drew many of their rules, the Corpus Juris Civilis cannot, as Calvo (I, § 38) justly observes, "be applied to the international relations of modern peoples without the gravest inconveniences," except in the domain of International Private Law. Halleck (I, ch. 2, § 18 of Baker's 3d ed.), Phillimore (I, § xxiii), and Pomeroy (§ 32) still speak of the Divine Law or principle of justice as a source of International Law; and a few publicists (like Hautefeuille , Discours preliminaire to Droit et des devoirs des neutres, ch. 1) constantly refer to an imaginary "primitive law" (droit ou loi primitive). For an able criticism of Hautefeuille on this point, see Historicus, 75 ff.
