Intended for the professional academic and graduate student, this book is the first to utilize the methodology of “New Stream” legal scholarship in an extended critical “exegesis” of Hugo Grotius’ De Indis (c.1604-6). De Indis is predicated upon a two-fold discursive strategy: (i) investing “private” Trading Companies with “public” international legal personality, and (ii) collapsing the distinction between “private” and “public” warfare. Governing the operation of textual interpretation is De Indis’ status as a republican treatise juridically legitimating an early modern Trans-National corporation (the VOC) that served as an agent of a “primitive” system of global governance, the early Capitalist World-Economy.
