This book takes the themes of the jurisprudential movement of legal polycentricity and applies them to international law. It focuses on the civilization of diversity and uncovers the non-universality of law and a pluralism of values. Sinha emphasizes that the proper role of international law is to ensure that in culture-specific matters, such as human rights, the state adheres to the normative ideals of the civilization to which it belongs.

“An extensive and well-conceived bibliography… [Sinha] closes the book with a rich vein of resource material for further exploration.” — ASIL Newsletter
