Friends, I am pleased to announce the launch of CANZUK Uniting. This group is dedicated to deepening the ties between the major Crown Commonwealths: The United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. With the British Brexit, an overdue opportunity for creative thinking and new institutional arrangements has finally arrived. I am very pleased to be associated with this group and with our outstanding contributors. As an American, I am particularly interested in the positive impact a CANZUK Union will have on the United States. Please take a look at our website. Stand by for further announcements related to CANZUK Uniting, and other related initiatives.

Also, please sign up for email notices of our publications and activities. It is very helpful for us to have as many people signed up as possible.

And please note that I am NOT retiring from the practice of law to participate in this initiative! Practicing law is my full time job. If you need legal help or legal services in Chicago, contact me. If the help you need happens to be outside my expertise, I will put you in touch with one of the brilliant and talented lawyer friends in my network.

We are proud to announce the publication of the Clausewitz Roundtable in book form. This book is an edited version of an online discussion on the Chicago Boyz blog in the Fall of 2009. It is said that everyone talks about Clausewitz, but no one reads him. The participants in this Roundtable refuted that assertion. They read On War by Carl von Clausewitz, and commented on each chapter of the book. Reading On War with a like-minded group, committed to taking Clausewitz seriously, in his own words, without relying on secondary sources, was an intellectual adventure. The discussion was lively, thoughtful and insightful. If you are interested in Clausewitz, and the ongoing value of his classic book, the Clausewitz Roundtable will be of interest to you. It is published in electronic format, and is modestly priced at $2.99.
