Important work by one of the great jurists of the seventeenth century. In this work Pufendorf, who came from Saxony and had left his war-torn land for Sweden, discusses the idea that the state is a union of individuals who give their individual consent, and that international law is truly international. The author believed peace, though difficult to maintain, was the natural state of mankind.
