Thus, while he deals in depth with the antagonists themselves, his central object of inquiry is, technically speaking, the geopolitics of the "non-belligerents" in the Spanish-American War, the war of many names that took place in 1898 (or, depending on one's perspective, perhaps between 1895 and 1903).

It is also significant that it was argued before the Prize Court on several occasions that these measures were not valid as belligerent action since Egypt did not recognize Israel to be a state, and war--in the technical sense--can only occur between states.(64) By implication, the Prize Court agreed that the sedes materiae of the validity of measures was the existence of a state of war when it held that: "The existence of a state of war or of neutrality in so far as non-belligerents are concerned cannot be discussed by the Court, for it is [its] duty to apply the law without examining its legality."(65) Another, arguably less cogent, argument employed by the Prize Court to reject such objections was modeled on the principle of estoppel.
