International Law, first published in 1836, is a book on international law by
Henry Wheaton which has long been influential. This book was translated into
many languages and became a standard work. On his own merits Wheaton is clearly
entitled to rank among the classics. Like Grotius, he embodied a happy
combination of profound scholarship with a wide experience of diplomatic and
public life, and his work further resembles that of Grotius in that it cannot be
classified under the conventional labels of any doctrinal system.
This book is a good read for anyone
interested in international politics, or how the world works (both theory and
application).The Law of Nations deals largely with political philosophy and
international relations, and has been said to have modernized the entire theory
and practice of international law.
