Any book is built by many hands. Unlike other books on
which I have worked, this project required travel to archives,
museums, and the sites which it describes. The support of the
Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada
was invaluable in making this possible. My thanks go to SSHRC and
to the anonymous reviewers who originally recommended my pro-
ject proposal. Preparing such a proposal is a major undertaking, in
which I was assisted by then-JD candidate Natalie Gajewski. Thanks
also to the University of Ottawa Faculty of Law research oce, and
then-Vice Dean Research Elizabeth Sheehy, for their assistance in
that process. More generally, this project benef‌ited from the willing
and enthusiastic support of colleagues at the University of Ottawa law
school and at our partner institution, the Norman Paterson School of
International Af‌fairs, Carleton University. In both places, matters of
international law in war and peace have f‌igured prominently in our
teaching, research, and discussions. On a sadder note, I would like
to think that my dear, departed colleague Nicole LaViolette, whose
work on the laws of war was cut short by her untimely passing in 2015,
would have relished the chance to debate this book’s content.
