The Spanish Connection

The Spanish Connection
In early modern times, Seville was the most important hub for the transatlantic economy. It attracted a large number of foreign merchants who connected the American with the European markets. While the transatlantic axis of this trade has drawn much attention in historiography, the connection between Seville and the European Atlantic coast has largely been ignored. Therefore, this book analyzes the central actors of this trade route who were the Flemish and French merchants of Seville. Following their commercial activities, it shows features of their private and business networks in Seville and displays fundamental structures and processes of the European and transatlantic economy.

The Arab of the Future

release date: Oct 20, 2015
The Arab of the Future
The Arab of the Future, the #1 French best-seller, tells the unforgettable story of Riad Sattouf''s childhood, spent in the shadows of 3 dictators—Muammar Gaddafi, Hafez al-Assad, and his father In striking, virtuoso graphic style that captures both the immediacy of childhood and the fervor of political idealism, Riad Sattouf recounts his nomadic childhood growing up in rural France, Gaddafi''s Libya, and Assad''s Syria--but always under the roof of his father, a Syrian Pan-Arabist who drags his family along in his pursuit of grandiose dreams for the Arab nation. Riad, delicate and wide-eyed, follows in the trail of his mismatched parents; his mother, a bookish French student, is as modest as his father is flamboyant. Venturing first to the Great Socialist People''s Libyan Arab State and then joining the family tribe in Homs, Syria, they hold fast to the vision of the paradise that always lies just around the corner. And hold they do, though food is scarce, children kill dogs for sport, and with locks banned, the Sattoufs come home one day to discover another family occupying their apartment. The ultimate outsider, Riad, with his flowing blond hair, is called the ultimate insult... Jewish. And in no time at all, his father has come up with yet another grand plan, moving from building a new people to building his own great palace. Brimming with life and dark humor, The Arab of the Future reveals the truth and texture of one eccentric family in an absurd Middle East, and also introduces a master cartoonist in a work destined to stand alongside Maus and Persepolis.

The Triumphs of Eugène Valmont

The Triumphs of Eugène Valmont
The Triumphs of Eugene Valmont (1906) brings together tales of the multifarious exploits of Robert Barr''s elegant and cunning sleuth, Valmont, a brilliantly ironic parody of Sherlock Holmes. Exhibiting the crucial combination of realism and imagination that characterizes the finest crime writing, the stories exude playfulness and blend mystery and quasi-Gothic thrills with humorous detours and romantic adventure. A notable figure in 1890s literary London and a friend of Conan Doyle, Barr was acutely aware of style as a form of statement and the stories are full of literary effects, commentary on the detective mystery genre, and Valmont''s disparaging reflections on English values.

The Southern Frontier 1670-1732

The Southern Frontier 1670-1732
A classic resource on the struggle for dominance in southern North America during the colonial period. This volume recounts the clashes and intrigues that played out over the landscape of the Old Southwest and across six decades as the Spanish, French, British, and ultimately Americans vied for control. Rivalry began soon after initial discovery, mapping, and exploration as the world powers, particularly England and France, competed for control of the lucrative fur trade in the Mississippi valley. The French attempted to establish trade networks stretching from the Atlantic Ocean inland to the Mississippi River and northward from ports on the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio River. But they found the British already entrenched there. Verner Crane guides us through this multinational struggle and navigates the border wars and diplomatic intrigues that played crucial roles in the settlement of the South by Euro-Americans. In his new introduction, Steven Hahn places the work in the context of its time, sketches its publication history, and provides biographical information on Crane.

Four French Travelers in Nineteenth-century Cuba

release date: Jan 01, 2008
Four French Travelers in Nineteenth-century Cuba
The nineteenth century marks the apex of the travel genre. This book focuses on the representation of Cuba by four French travelers to the island from 1810 to 1866. The travelogues of these voyagers allow their first-hand experience to be considered under the mutual gaze involved in cross-cultural encounters. Four French Travelers in Nineteenth-Century Cuba argues that politics and science, as well as romanticism and commerce, coalesce in the travelers'' representations of Cuban culture and institutions. The travel accounts constitute exercises in how knowledge spreads and gathers as travelers attempt to entice other visitors to emulate them and forge identities for the Cuban «Others» they have encountered.
