'It will change the way you remember the 20th century and read the news in the 21st' Steven Pinker

'A clarion call to preserve law and order across our planet' Philippe Sands

'A fascinating and important book ... given the state of the world, The Internationalists has come along at the right moment' Margaret MacMillan, Financial Times

Since the end of the Second World War, we have moved from an international system in which war was legal, and accepted as the ultimate arbiter of disputes between nations, to one in which it was not. Nations that wage aggressive war have become outcasts and have almost always had to give up their territorial gains. How did this epochal transformation come about? This remarkable book, which combines political, legal, and intellectual history, traces the origins and course of one of the great shifts in the modern world.

'Sweeping and yet personable at the same time, The Internationalists explores the profound implications of the outlawry of war. Professors Oona Hathaway and Scott Shapiro enrich their analysis with vignettes of the many individuals (some unknown to most students of History) who played such important roles in this story. None have put it all together in the way that Hathaway and Shapiro have done in this book' Paul Kennedy

Review:

Genuine originality is unusual in political history. The Internationalists is an original book. (Louis Menand New Yorker)

An impassioned history of how the liberal international order came into being and why it must be defended as never before (Economist)

The Internationalists is a fascinating and challenging book, which raises gravely important issues for the present. (Margaret MacMillan Financial Times)

An extraordinary high-wire act ... this book is a lively firecracker that illuminates not only the past, but also the present (Adam Roberts Telegraph)
