The struggle for distribution and control of natural resources has been at the heart of international legal developments over the last decades. Sigrid Boysen's study sets out to show that the idea of legitimacy international environmental law relies on is fundamentally flawed in relation to both genealogy and substance. What is usually described as a self-transcendence of the sovereign state, is in fact the darker side of the shifting world order during the twentieth century: the transformation of classical imperialism.
