Encyclopedia of World Trade

"This resource, arranged alphabetically, contains approximately 450 entries offering biographies and information on countries, states, peoples, companies, policies, empires, and trade organizations. In addition, historical episodes such as the decline of the Roman Empire are discussed in light of how they shaped global trade, religion, war, immigration, exploration, and transportation. Readers will find a fascinating array of topics from the expected (spices) to the unexpected (descriptions of animals such as donkeys and their contributions to trade). See also references will lead students to other pertinent information, and each entry concludes with a short bibliography. An outstanding feature of the set is the succinct statement/definition at the beginning of each entry. Other prominent and useful properties are the topic finder and three indexes. Volume four contains a selection of primary sources listed chronologically from the Code of Hammurabi to the Agreement Establishing the World Trade Organization in 1995. Black-and-white photographs, illustrations, and maps are located throughout the encyclopedia. With today's interest in globalization, classes across the curriculum will find multiple uses for this reference set."*
