    One thought on “de Jure Belli Et Pacis”

    1. Regime Change, 1970 s StyleI first encountered the 17th century philosopher Hugo Grotius in 1978, when I briefly studied the international law and political philosophy with respect to unilateral declarations of independence UDI s and what has since become known as regime change.There was a UDI on 11 November, 1965 in Rhodesia Soon after, legal cases started to emerge in which there were jurisdictional issues about what government, what courts and what laws were applicable immediately after the d [...]

    2. De Jure Belli ac Pacis means On the Justice of War and Peace in Greek This is a kinda weird book, as far as books go, but pretty worthwhile in the end The plot starts out real slow at first, and the characters are distant and hard to relate to You really have to get used to Grotius style, which is a little outdated because he was a Roman, and he references tons of Roman and other examples to bolster his arguments, sometimes even like 20 pages of examples, and by the end, you re like, OK I get it [...]
