BIBLIOGRAPHIES specific topics (in particular in articles dealing with extra-European regions). The Introduction clarifies that "the reason for this limitation was first practical (not everything can be achieved at a time, or in a single book), and, secondly, the idea of focusing on that international law which had a bearing on the contemporary international legal order". This explanation sounds sensible but it is very far from neutral. Antiquity is key to a true "global" history of international law. Secondly, just like globalism, the Introduction succinctly addresses the "epistemological problem" in historiography, reminding that "history cannot be written from an external omniscient point of view", that "writing history on a given subject depends on making innumerable choices" and that in history "there are lines of evolution, but there is also discontinuity". It fails, however, to address the epistemological bias of international law as such, including its history and histories.
