Nusantara merupakan daerah perlintasan yang sangat tua. Sejak periode 2000 SM, Nusantara telah menjalin hubungan dengan Dinasti Shang di Cina. Mulai abad ke-18 orang-orang Barat mencoba melacak kembali persentuhan-persentuhan pertama antara Negeri Cina dengan Nusantara.
Dan dalam hal ini penelitian oleh W.P.
Groeneveldt tentang Nusantara dalam catatan Tionghoa yang pertama kali diumumkan pada 1880 tetap saja merupakan pegangan yang bermanfaat sampai sekarang.
El objeto de esta monografía es ayudar a ampliar el conocimiento sobre el tardofranquismo, un periodo clave para comprender la historia reciente de España. Para ello recurrimos a una fuente tan útil como infravalorada: la información publicada en los medios de comunicación extranjeros sobre los cambios políticos y sociales operados en nuestro país durante aquellos años. El presente libro analiza la cobertura informativa ofrecida por The New York Times, una de las cabeceras más emblemáticas de la prensa escrita norteamericana y todo un referente a nivel mundial. A través del estudio de sus editoriales, sus artículos de opinión y las crónicas enviadas por los corresponsales desplazados en nuestro país, seremos capaces de reconstruir la imagen que España proyectaba hacia el exterior y, sobre todo, percibir cuál era la opinión del periódico estadounidense acerca del progresivo cambio político que comenzaba su andadura durante los últimos años de la dictadura franquista.
The New York Times has called Carl Dennis's poetry "wise, original, and deeply moving." A poet with a growing audience of admirers, Dennis writes in a clear, classically simple language that is both personal and universal. Making use of a rich variety of genres--advice, meditation, elegy, and prophecy--his poems take unexpected turns as they explore their subjects, catching the reader off balance in a way that is liberating. This new anthology gathers the best of his eight previous books along with a generous sampling of new poems.

Hans Fallada's raw, darkly humorous account of a town rife with corruption, greed and brutality, first published in 1931, was written as Weimar Germany collapsed around him. It is an extraordinary novel about the failure of governments and the failings of people. Michael Hofmann's brilliant, colloquial translation brings this work of intrigue and foreboding to English readers for the first time.

How International Law Works presents a theory of international law, how it operates, and why it works. Though appeals to international law have grown ever more central to international disputes and international relations, there is no well-developed, comprehensive theory of how international law shapes policy outcomes. Filling a conspicuous gap in the literature on international law, Andrew T.
Guzman builds a coherent theory from the ground up and applies it to the foundations of the international legal system. Using tools from across the social sciences Guzman deploys a rational choice methodology to explain how a legal system can succeed in the absence of coercive enforcement. He demonstrates how even rational and selfish states are motivated by concerns about reciprocal non-compliance, retaliation, and reputation to comply with their international legal commitments. Contradicting the conventional view of the subject among international legal scholars, Guzman argues that the primary sources of international commitment--formal treaties, customary international law, soft law, and even international norms--must be understood as various points on a spectrum of commitment rather than wholly distinct legal structures. Taking a rigorous and theoretically sound look at international law, How International Law Works provides an in-depth, thoroughgoing guide to the complexities of international law, offers guidance to those managing relations among nations, and helps us to understand when we can look to international law to resolve problems, and when we must accept that we live in an anarchic world in which some issues can be resolved only through politics.
