`At the conclusion of The Rights of War and Peace, one is left with the feeling that we may well be condemned to relive the philosophical debates of the past. The theorists he discusses have much to teach us not only about the nature of politics in the international system, but also, perhaps, about the reasonable limits of international law. Richard Tuck's book offers a superb vehicle for examining such issues.' David J.Bederman, The American Journal of International Law, Vol 95 `a slim but provocative book ... Tuck's book not only provides a close reading of the central works of political philosophy that bear on international relations, but also reflects his rich understanding of the political developments that motivated and influenced the writings he canvasses ... The Rights of War and Peace should be of substantial interest to the international law community.' David J.Bederman, The American Journal of International Law, Vol.95 `Review from previous edition recommended for anyone interested in the history of international law.' S. R. Silverburg, Choice `fascinating new book ... Tuck's thesis, argued with great historical erudition and philosophical subtlety, is persuasive ... a rich and stimulating book.' Bhikhu Parekh, Times Literary Supplement
