       Historicism in Victorian international law 
520    Against the dominant narrative first developed in the 
       eighteenth century, which has held that international law 
       had its origins in relations between sovereign European 
       states that respected each other as free and equal, 
       Boundaries of the International examines the deep 
       entanglement of international law with European imperial 
       expansion. As commercial relations with states such as the
       Ottoman and Empire and China intensified, European legal 
       and political writers increasingly described them as 
       anomalous and backward empires in a modern world of nation
       -states, even as European states were themselves expanding
       their imperial reach across the globe. The debate over the
       boundaries of international law included legal authorities
       from Vattel to Wheaton to Westlake but ranged well beyond 
       professional jurists to political thinkers such as 
       Montesquieu, Edmund Burke, and J.S. Mill, legislators and 
       diplomats, colonial administrators and journalists. 
       Dissident voices in this broader public debate insisted 
       that European states had extensive legal obligations 
       abroad. These critics provide valuable resources for the 
       critical scrutiny of the political, economic, and legal 
       inequalities that continue to afflict the global order.--
