520    "To the Uttermost Parts of the Earth addresses the uses of
       law by successive generations of lawyers, theologians, 
       philosophers and political writers to deal with the 
       exercises of power beyond the single polity. From the 
       novel understanding of royal authority as analogous to 
       that of a Roman emperor in the 13th century to the 
       treatment of an expanding bourgeois civil society in the 
       early 19th century, the book traces the use of the notions
       of sovereignty and property across more than five 
       centuries of reflection on the international exercise of 
       European power. The book not only transcends the 
       conventional limits between private and public law, 
       domestic and international law, but shows how such limits 
       were constituted in the first place. Its thesis is that 
       European power is neither the power of state nor that of 
       capital. Instead it has always been and continues to exist
       as a locally specific, legally constituted combination of 
       the two"--|cProvided by publisher.
