About the Authors
  • International Law and the Cold War is the first book dedicated to examining the relationship between the Cold War and International Law. The authors adopt a variety of creative approaches - in relation to events and fields such as nuclear war, environmental protection, the Suez crisis and the Lumumba assassination - in order to demonstrate the many ways in which international law acted upon the Cold War and in turn show how contemporary international law is an inheritance of the Cold War. Their innovative research traces the connections between the Cold War and contemporary legal constructions of the nation-state, the environment, the third world, and the refugee; and between law, technology, science, history, literature, art, and politics.

    • Offers the first full-length study of international law and the Cold War
    • Demonstrates the intellectual utility of cross-disciplinary and creative approaches to understanding the global political order
    • The contributors have adopted a variety of heterodox methodologies and theoretical approaches to understanding the relationship between international law and the Cold War
