    • Abstract:
      It is well-known that the basic ideas and principles of modern international law originated in Europe. In a period during the early twentieth century, however, a number of Chinese intellectuals examined and demonstrated that international law had already existed during the Spring and Autumn and the Warring States Periods in China. They committed themselves to exploring and carrying forward ancient Chinese international law as a way to maintain China's rich cultural tradition in a global order governed by the West. This may be a swan song of the Chinese intellectuals who rose up against the oppression of imperialist powers and sought a more balanced order in the then-contemporary world. Were their efforts to be revived in another way, however, the swan song could be akin to a phoenix rising, initiating a time of renewal, bringing such ideas back into consideration.
