My new video is about an ancient institution. You can view it below, or you can watch it directly on YouTube by clicking here.

Tomorrow, I’ll be visiting the rare books room at Yale Law School, where my friend Mike Widener will be showing me some of his treasures, including the library’s collection of Blackstone—the subject of a future video. Stay tuned. And thanks for your comments and support.

  1. Nice piece, raising interesting questions about the connections between environmental and legal history. See: http://environmentlawhistory.blogspot.com/2013/06/environmental-history-and-lawa-new.html

    • Thanks for your kind words. And thanks, too, for passing along this link, which lays out a very interesting and ambitious research agenda: “to explore how material environments have mattered to the history of law without falling into the trap of determinism or buying into some kind of pre-modern natural law.” I’m looking forward to learning more about your work.
