Download and read online The Silver Way China Spanish America and the birth of globalisation 1565 1815 in PDF and EPUB Long before London and New York rose to international prominence, a trading route was discovered between Spanish America and China that ushered in a new era of globalisation. The Ruta de la Plata or ’Silver Way’ catalysed economic and cultural exchange, built the foundations for the first global currency and led to the rise of the first ‘world city’. And yet, for all its importance, the Silver Way is too often neglected in conventional narratives on the birth of globalisation. Gordon and Morales re-establish its fascinating role in economic and cultural history, with direct consequences for how we understand China today.

Download and read online Everything Under the Heavens in PDF and EPUB From the former New York Times Asia correspondent and author of China's Second Continent, an incisive investigation of China's ideological development as it becomes an ever more aggressive player in regional and global diplomacy. For many years after its reform and opening in 1978, China maintained an attitude of false modesty about its ambitions. That role, reports Howard French, has been set aside. China has asserted its place among the global heavyweights, revealing its plans for pan-Asian dominance by building its navy, increasing territorial claims to areas like the South China Sea, and diplomatically bullying smaller players. Underlying this attitude is a strain of thinking that casts China's present-day actions in decidedly historical terms, as the path to restoring the dynastic glory of the past. If we understand how that historical identity relates to current actions, in ways ideological, philosophical, and even legal, we can learn to forecast just what kind of global power China stands to become--and to interact wisely with a future peer. Steeped in deeply researched history as well as on-the-ground reporting, this is French at his revelatory best. From the Hardcover edition.

Download and read online 1616 in PDF and EPUB The world of 1616 was a world of motion. Enormous galleons carrying silk and silver across the Pacific created the first true global economy, and the first international megacorporations were emerging as economic powers. In Europe, the deaths of Shakespeare and Cervantes marked the end of an era in literature, as the spirit of the Renaissance was giving way to new attitudes that would lead to the Age of Revolution. Great changes were also taking place in East Asia, where the last native Chinese dynasty was entering its final years and Japan was beginning its long period of warrior rule. Artists there, as in many parts of the world, were rethinking their connections to ancient traditions and experimenting with new directions. Women everywhere were redefining their roles in family and society. Slave trading was relocating large numbers of people, while others were migrating in search of new opportunities. The first tourists, traveling not for trade or exploration but for personal fulfillment, were exploring this new globalized world.

Download and read online Savour in PDF and EPUB What defines a salad? Is it merely a few ingredients tossed together in a bowl with a dressing, or is it more complex than that? Acclaimed chef Peter Gordon shows us that salads are versatile and fun dishes that harmoniously combine a mixture of individually prepared ingredients, that when coming together, can either be very similar in texture and colour, or ones that oppose each other—such as crunch supporting smooth. Peter demonstrates how salads can be made to suit your mood; some salads are perfectly crafted assemblages, whilst others are quickly put together. By adding a contrasting flavour or texture to a mix, it can often highlight other ingredients in the same dish. Throughout the recipes within Vibrant Salads, you’ll discover that it is the shock of a sweet roast grape that highlights sharp citrus notes, or a spicy chilli being used to add excitement to a sweet mango. Peter’s salads are wide-ranging and the recipes within Vibrant Salads reflect this; from vegetarian dishes such as aubergine with gem, quinoa and pistachio, to red meat based salads such as poached veal with anchovy mayonnaise and potatoes. Whatever your mood, the occasion or season, there will always be a saladto complement it.
