From the Publisher"...a particularly important [book] for international lawyers, scholars and activists to read."
American Journal of International Law
"Anghie's narrative venture at reading the devastating histories of the making of the 'modern' and 'contemporary' international law, relations, and organization remains especially compelling. He brings home the roles of imperialism in full play, and war, in the contemporary remake of international law."
Leiden Journal of International Law
"Anghie makes an important contribution to the field of international law."
Law and Politics Book Review
"... much of this book will be of great interest beyond the discipline of international law - particularly to scholars of international relations, and post-colonial and development studies ... an excellent and most welcome contribution."
European Journal of International Law
"...argued meticulously and compellingly and should be required reading for all scholars of international law."
Modern Law Review
"Imperialism, Sovereignty and International Law is a work of expert scholarship that is simultaneously accessible and engaging. It inspires a questioning of our assumptions about international law about the motivations for our own work. It should be read by anyone interested in the future of international law."
Sydney Law Review
"...Anghie's book is a thoroughgoing account that gives voice to sentiments that seldom see the light of day, let alone are adjudged worthy of dissemination by a prestigious press. The rereading of international law is a useful corrective to conventional perspectives that normalize subjugation and its rationalization by any means necessary."
Law and Society Review
"Anghie's book lays out an excellent argument for the colonial background of international law and its institutions, and it does so with numerous fresh insights and clear command of a wide range of materials."
Law and History Review.
"A very useful book that presents, in a very clear way, how international law has been forged from its origins as an instrument to differentiate the Western and Third World countries."
Alfredo Fortes, Ottawa Law Review
