While the 1913 Carnegie Report features prominently in histories of modern warfare, ethnic cleansing, and human rights, this volume breaks new ground by foregrounding its importance in the evolution of international law. The book offers incredible breadth and depth: from the complex legal and philanthropic contexts of the report’s making to the fascinating biographies of the men who wrote it to its uneven and politicized reception in the Balkans and beyond, we learn a plethora of captivating information about its origins and impact in a truly global perspective. A must read for scholars and students of international law and organizations, human rights, and Balkan, European, and global history.
