Oceans of wine : Madeira and the emergence of American trade and taste by David Hancock( Book )
7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 475 libraries worldwide
"This innovative book examines how, between 1640 and 1815, the Portuguese Madeira wine trade shaped the Atlantic world and American society. David Hancock painstakingly reconstructs the lives of producers. distributors, and consumers, as well as the economic and social structures created by globalizing commerce, to reveal an intricate interplay between individuals and market forces. Ranging widely across history, economics, chemistry, material culture, anthropology, archaeology, and psychology, Hancock paints an engaging portrait of a commodity and the societies that grew up around it. Wine lovers and Madeira enthusiasts will enjoy Oceans of Wine, as will historians interested in food, colonial trade, and the history of the Atlantic region." "Using voluminous archives of records pertaining to wine, many of them previously unexamined, Hancock offers a dramatic new perspective on the economic and social development of the Atlantic world by challenging traditional interpretations that have identified states and empires as the driving force behind trade. He demonstrates convincingly just how decentralized the early modern commercial system was, as well as how self-organized, a system that emerged from the actions of market participants working across imperial lines. The networks they formed began as commercial structures, and expanded into social and political systems that were conduits not only for wine but also for ideas about reform, revolution, and independence. Oceans if Wine reframes American history as Atlantic history, placing colonial America and the early republic within an expansive, global context."--Jacket

"The hopes, fears, and aspirations of adolescence are expressed in the close friendship of two Afghan boys. As their acceptance of the filmmakers leads them to express their feelings more and more openly, the film grows rich in fact and themes of universal concern. Filmed in the Balkh Province, an area inhabited by Tajik and other Central Asian peoples. The town of Aq Kupruk is approximately 320 miles northwest of Kabul. The theme of the film focuses on education and socialization ... Particular attention is paid to the lives of one or two young people in the educational system, to their family and kinship structure, and more broadly to educational policies in the developing world."
