The legendary overland silk road was not the only way to reach Asia for ancient travelers from the Mediterranean. During the Roman Empire’s heyday, equally important maritime routes reached from the Egyptian Red Sea across the Indian Ocean. The ancient city of Berenike, located approximately 500 miles south of today’s Suez Canal, was a significant port among these conduits. In this book, Steven E. Sidebotham, the archaeologist who excavated Berenike, uncovers the role the city played in the regional, local, and "global" economies during the eight centuries of its existence. Sidebotham analyzes many of the artifacts, botanical and faunal remains, and hundreds of the texts he and his team found in excavations, providing a profoundly intimate glimpse of the people who lived, worked, and died in this emporium between the classical Mediterranean world and Asia.

A thrilling, seductive adventure from award-winning author Alyssa Alexander… After he is betrayed by one of his own, British spy Julian Travers, Earl of Langford, refuses to retire without a fight, vowing to find the traitor. But when the trail leads to his childhood home, Julian is forced to return to a place he swore he’d never see again, and meet a woman who may be his quarry—in more ways than one. Though she may appear a poor young woman dependant on charity, Grace Hannah’s private life is far more interesting. By night, she finds friendship and freedom as a member of a smuggling ring. But when the handsome Julian arrives, she finds her façade slipping, and she is soon compromised, as well as intrigued. As she and Julian continue the hunt, Grace finds herself falling in love with the man behind the spy. Yet Julian’s past holds a dark secret. And when he must make a choice between love and espionage, that secret may tear them apart.

The First Edition of this text was written at a time when the structures of international relations were undergoing a profound transformation, with the collapse of Soviet-style communism just behind us and the creation of NAFTA and the WTO just ahead. The Second Edition came at a time when NAFTA and the WTO had taken shape but not yet acquired a history. At the time of the Third Edition, both of those structures can be studied in detail and their ramifications for the world economy can be better appreciated. In the interim, the Internet has established itself as a presence in innumerable firms and households, and the dot com bubble has come and gone. The services-oriented information economy seems no longer to be emerging, but rather a fundamental aspect of contemporary business. The Fourth Edition of International Business and Economics reflects the growth and development of the global economy as well as the way law schools prepare lawyers to work in that world. The book was written in the shadow of a financial crisis that seemed at times destined to bring international economic catastrope, but which so far has been grim but not disastrous. The book has been revised more comprehensively than any of the earlier successor editions. For example, materials on international civil litigation have largely dropped out and correspondingly more materials on international investment arbitration and WTO dispute resolution, as well as the interaction between those bodies of law and national law have been added. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
