Abstract

This review critiques Deland, Klamberg, and Wrange's book, International Humanitarian Law and Justice: Historical and Sociological Perspectives. The book introduces the importance of historicizing international law, and is divided into themed parts that illustrate how conducting historiographies can aid legal scholars and practitioners in better understanding what the law is. The review will evaluate the effectiveness of weaving the historiography theme throughout the chapters to substantiate the book's thesis.
