Comment: Not sure I can be much more

In reply to comment: Very interesting concept on "state" (see in situ)

Not sure I can be much more

Not sure I can be much more creative than to suggest making best friends with Black's Law Dictionary, The law of Nations, and the famous 1856 law dictionary whose author escapes me just now. Perhaps the only "out of the ordinary" book I can recommend is The Red Amendment. See link below.

Have fun and best wishes.
