The Wars of the Romans: A Critical Edition and Translation of De Armis Romanis
The first English translation of Gentili's classic work, debating the legality and justice of wars waged by the Romans. A polemic and engaging work, Gentili pioneered the use of Roman law and just war theory in what would become a leading international law approach to the enduring questions of the justice of empire.
