The Enemy of All: Piracy and the Law of Nations Daniel Heller-Roazen Daniel
Heller-Roazen is, technically, a Professor of Comparative Literature at Princeton
University. But in such previous books as The Inner Touch: The Archeology of a
Sensation, a meditation on our sense of being alive, and Echolalias: On the
Forgetting of Language, he has ranged beyond what most of us would include
under even that vast categorical umbrella. Likewise with his newest title, The
Enemy of All, ...

of the human race. Being the enemy of all, he is liable to be punished by all. Any
act which denotes this universal hostility, is an act of piracy. Not only an actual

Nor can I consider these principles of the British Courts a departure from the law
of nations. The authority of so and Vattel are introduced to shew that private
subjects are not at liberty to seize the property of enemies without the
commission of the sovereign, and if they do they are considered as pirates. But
when attentively considered, it strikes me that, taking the full scope of these
authors, they will not be found to support so broad a position. Puff. B. 8. ch. 6. §
21.—Wattel, B., 3. ch. 15.

Piracy by law of nations, in its jurisdictional aspects, is sui generis. Though
statutes may provide for its punishment, it is an offence against the law of nations;
and as the scene of the pirate's operations is the high seas, which it is not the
right or duty of any nation to police, he is denied the protection of the flag which
he may carry, and is treated as an outlaw, as the enemy of all mankind—hostis
humani generis—whom any nation may in the interest of all capture and punish...

In truth, the right of every nation to punish is limited, in its nature, to offenses
against the nation inflicting the punishment. This principle is believed to be
universally true. It comprehends every possible violation of its laws on its' own
territory, and it extends to violations committed elsewhere by persons it has a
right to bind. It extends also to general piracy. A pirate, under the law of nations,
is an enemy of the human race. Being the enemy of all, he is liable to be
