PUNITIVE DAMAGES - Great Britain and uncertain justice in the American Civil War

Simon Daniels

    Research output: Working paper

    Abstract

    In the most internecine war in modern history, Great Britain was the foreign power most closely involved in the War between the States; but, for all the arguments of law, we cannot escape from the awful truth that stands, glaring and reproachful, head and shoulders over the faltering figure of Britain?s contentious neutrality. On the day that Washington took up arms to fight the Secessionists until they were crushed, the ineffable doctrine of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness was challenged by the authority of the State. This monograph examines just how Britain?s involvement followed the course of the war and, ultimately, led to an extraordinary arbitral award in the Geneva Conference.
