Abstract

How it is possible to appropriate the European legal legacy for writing a decolonialized history of international law ? Is this task possible also for a European legal historian ? Or is he is stucked in his past with his ‘dead white heroes’ ? Assuming an historical perspective the book intends to answer to these questions and tells the paradoxical beginnings of international law. It was a new law that was considered the measuring unit of the civilized word and the instrument, in a far off time, to reassemble the distinctions between ‘us and the others’ that it did not cease to produce.
