Here is a link to "A constitution for living"
http://www.watnyanaves.net/uploads/File ... living.pdf
There is a list of the abbreviations used at the end of the book.
In the pdf file from the link you kindly provided there is a "ABBREVIATIONS Designating major Buddhist scriptures∗" on the 11th digital page of the file -- no list at the end. The page does not indicate what "J.V." means.

Using a digital search I was able to find hit's on "J.V" but nothing that tells me what it means.

I'm thinking the Buddha's politics needs an addendum about transparent and unambiguous citations!
I would imagine J is for Jataka V is (volume) 5 and 378 is a page number but I guess that doesn't really help much.

If its Jataka volume 5 page 378 it should be in here:
https://suttacentral.net/ja-asitinipata
specifically: https://suttacentral.net/ja534/
but I have difficulty locating it...

Could be that it is referring to Thai editions, as the book is a translation. Ven Dhammanando may know.

Please unpack these abbreviated references into URL's to English translations. Or at least use their full names.
It's the two Goose King birth stories (Mahāhaṃsa Jātaka and Cullahaṃsa Jātaka) in the PTS romanised Pali edition. Translations:

So the first was the #534 that I linked to above?

It takes a bit of work to extract the list from that text...

I don't know. I'm afraid Sutta Central doesn't work on my computer - I just get blank pages.

Well, it's basically the same as the text you linked to, anyway...

A good book on the Buddha's politics:

https://www.holybooks.com/wp-content/up ... ddhism.pdf

"The Sangha was to provide the growth point from which would spread a new pattern of humanity, the social restructuring of human life, which had at its aim the elimination of individualism with all its human ill effects."
"Silence gives answers"

Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Rumi
