Abstract:

In this work, Grotius examines the historical, political, and legal aspects of war and sets forth a foundation for international law because of his argument against the territorial sovereignty of the world's coastal waters. The manuscript resulted from a dispute arose between the united kingdom of Spain and Portugal and the Dutch. Spain-Portugal claimed a monopoly on trade with the East Indies. In 1604, after a Dutch admiral seized the Portuguese vessel Santa Catarina, the Dutch East India Company asked Grotius to produce a work legally defending that action. Their grounds were that, by claiming a monopoly on the right of trade, Spain-Portugal had deprived the Dutch of their natural trading rights. Grotius's De Jure Praedae was unpublished during his lifetime, except for one chapter, Mare Liberum ("The Freedom of the Seas"). This chapter buttressed the Dutch position in the negotiations for the Twelve Years' Truce with Spain that were concluded in 1609.
