Coates’ original and deeply researched book examines the entwined history of international law and US empire between 1898 and the 1920s. As jurists, politicians, and academicians justified the conduct of the United States and its growing power abroad, they became an instrumental force in the development of international law. Coates’ intriguing and important research helps to explain the twentieth century impulse for collective security through law.
