The dislocations of the worldwide economic crisis, the necessity of
a system of global justice to address crimes against humanity, and
the notorious 'democratic deficit' of international institutions
highlight the need for an innovative and truly global legal system,

acknowledged global needs and evolving consciousness. A new global
law will constitute, by itself, a genuine legal order and will not

the conduct of the world's peoples. If the law of nations served
the hegemonic interests of Ancient Rome, and international law

will contribute to the common good of all humanity and, ideally, to
the development of durable world peace. This volume offers a
historical-juridical foundation for the development of this new
