History of International Law

by | Jul 18, 2018 | July 2018, On-Going Training

Understanding the history of international law is the foundation needed in order to move forward in understanding how societies have formed and how they interact amongst themselves. In this on-going training, David begins the discussion with Livy’s History of Rome. Starting with this historical document, it becomes very clear the Law of Nations and the concepts of international relations dates all the way back to Roman times.

This 90-minute training covers a lot of material. David did mention listening to an audio recording between him and Gary. Although he did not get to that audio, it will be available for you to listen in this archive. David also reviews two video excerpts (1) The LON in America’s Independence, and (2) a presentation from a Harvard professor who wrote a book called the Founder’s Coup in which he discusses just how bad things got between the “founding fathers” during the time of the Constitutional Convention. Below will be the full training as well as a brief timeline of topics discussed. along with links to certain resource material mentioned.
