In 1790, it was not a given that the young US, bruised and healing from its struggle for independence and populated by fewer than four million inhabitants, would even survive, much less flourish. But the great adventure that came next - the exploration and settlement of the lands lying to the west and stretching to the Pacific Ocean - would build a nation where only a patchwork of Eastern seaboard colonies had existed before.  The first audiobook in this series, Out Where the West Begins: Profiles, Visions, & Strategies of Early Western Business Leaders, profiled 50 individuals who made significant contributions to the economic development of a young nation. This second volume follows the saga of more than 100 influential men and women - political and military leaders, religious thinkers, civil rights proponents, suffragettes, African American pioneers, writers and artists, explorers and surveyors, architects, inventors, innovators, medical professionals, and conservationists - who together wove the story of early Western frontier America. The engaging account of their lives forms a unique tapestry of human experience. In the words of the author, “Understanding our distinctive past helps us better comprehend who we are now and who we wish to become.” 1.

World domination is a vision most kings, queens, and emperors can only dream of, and is a path less visited for good reason. It is one that requires, above all, patience, as well as skill, tenacity, and an impenetrable plan of action. The only one to ever come close to this impossible level of prestige is the legendary British Empire. It was under the reign of King Henry VII of England that this ambitious idea of global expansion was first planted. In March of 1496, the king granted an exploratory charter to John Cabot, who would pilot a successful voyage that resulted in the occupation of an uninhabited island in Newfoundland. Though Cabot's second voyage ended in disaster, the courage and will he displayed during these endeavors inspired English explorers to organize more ventures and take to the seas themselves, as they hoped to see just how far they could push the envelope. Today, the British Army is one of the most powerful fighting forces in the world. Its highly trained professional soldiers are equipped with the most advanced military technology ever made. Naturally, the history and traditions behind this army are also impressive. Britain has not been successfully invaded in centuries. Its soldiers once created and defended a global empire, and during the Second World War, it was one of the leading nations standing against the brutal Axis forces, leading the way in the greatest seaborne invasion in military history.But it was not always like this. For most of its history, Britain was a patchwork of competing nations. England, the largest of its constituent countries, was often relatively weak as a land power compared with its European neighbors. Moreover, Britain’s armies, like those of the other European powers, were neither professional nor standing armies for hundreds of years.The Origins of the British Army: The History of England’s Establishment of a Professional Modern Army covers that period before the development 1.

“You are charged with one of the most difficult and disagreeable tasks that a British admiral has ever been faced with. But we have complete confidence in you and rely on you to carry it out relentlessly.” (Prime Minister Winston Churchill)  “90% of senior naval officers, including myself, thought [Operation Catapult] a ghastly error and still do.” (Royal Navy Admiral Andrew Cunningham, 1950) Emerging from France's catastrophic 1940 defeat like a bedraggled and rather sinister phoenix, the French State – better known to history as “Vichy France” or the “Vichy Regime” after its spa-town capital – stands in history as a unique and bizarre creation of German Fuhrer Adolf Hitler's European conquests. A patchwork of paradoxes and contradictions, the Vichy Regime maintained a quasi-independent French nation for some time after the Third Reich invasion until the Germans decided to include it in their occupation zone. While the French later disowned the Vichy government with considerable vehemence, evidence such as fairly broad-based popular support prior to Case Anton suggests a somewhat different story.  Of course, this precarious position left Britain in the unenviable position of figuring out what to do with its once erstwhile ally. France is seldom deemed a maritime power, yet during World War I and in the interwar period, the French Navy developed into a relatively powerful fighting force. While it could not rival the British, American, or Japanese forces, it represented one of the medium-sized naval powers like Germany or Italy. As such, the French Navy would have an interesting role to play in the development of the Vichy state during World War II.   While the Third Reich naturally cast covetous eyes at the powerful French naval vessels in the hands of their ostensible Vichy ally, they proved content to see those ships remain neutral for several years after their victory in Western Europe. Only when the French changed their alle 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Norman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/112869/bk_acx0_112869_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Medieval Towns and the Rural Economy In Eastern...

This work represents an insight into the economy of the Norwegian High Middle Ages. It presents the process of urban development in Norway from AD 1000 - AD 1350 in order to highlight significant economic differences between Norway and Europe and England. After the first towns were founded by the Norwegian Crown in the 11th century urban development stalled. No more towns were founded from AD 1200 until the mid 17th century and large tracts of the Norwegian landscape were to remain without a town or a market until almost a century after the reformation. In this respect Norway is unique by not conforming to the patterns that represent urban development elsewhere in Europe.The path that took Norway from being a patchwork of pagan Viking chiefdoms to a unified Medieval Christian Kingdom was short. The result was a monopolisation of the economy by the Crown and Church to the detriment of weaker urban development, and a system that collapsed under the demographic crisis that followed in the wake of the Black Death.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Law - Civil / Private / Trade / Anti Trust Law / Business Law, grade: 1,3, University of Groningen, language: English, abstract: When examining the development of foreign direct investment and the effects of multinationalcorporations over the last decades, one has to come to the conclusion that the importance increased andgrew significantly. Until the 1970s most of the countries were opposed to foreign direct investment due toa fear of losing economic and political independence by allowing foreign control over their economicresources and their key industries. Since the 1990s, there has been a positive turn towards foreign directinvestment and its liberalization, because it is predominantly seen as requirement for economic growth,productivity increase, creation of export potential and technology transfer. As a result, the amount offoreign direct investment expanded faster than the world economy and the volume of international traderesulting in a need to control the investment flows and to regulate the area.1By virtue of the rather sensitive topic of foreign direct investments, it was impossible in the past for theinternational community to agree upon an uniform and harmonized international regime setting out thestandards for international investments. Hence, a multitude of national and international policy rules andprinciples govern the relevant aspects in this field resulting in a variety of international investmentagreements. As an example, more than 2670 bilateral investment treaties and more than 270 otherinternational investment agreements have been adopted globally until the end of 2008.2Nevertheless, the plurality of the different international investment agreements with their different scopes,different types, different signatories have led to a patchwork of treaties resulting in a highly fragmentedand incoherent international investment regime. As a result of this and the problems accompanying it,such as a more and more complex structure and an increase in investment disputes due to theinterpretation and implementation of these treaties, the desire to adopt a general coherent framework forinvestment has been stirred, especially by international organizations like the WTO or the OECD.The OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) is an international economicorganization consisting out of 34 countries and was founded in 1961 to stimulate economic progress andworld trade.
