- Icons of the American West: From Cowgirls to Silicon Valley. $175.
The American West is rich in lore, cultural roots, and iconic images. This lively two-volume set presents the stories of some of the most influential and representative Western icons. This accessible treatment of the untamed enterprise of the ‘Old West’--including cowboys, wild west shows, and gun battles--and the continued entrepreneurial imagination of the paradisical ‘New West’--including environmentalists and the incorporation of national parks--elevates the reader’s understanding of oft-romanticized subjects and the conflicts and cultural changes that made them icons.
- Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation (Critical Perspectives on the World Economy). $1,390.
This new major work from Routledge is a five-volume collection which covers the origins and history of the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-Operation forum (APEC), its achievements and the impact it has had—and continues to have—on international relations and economic cooperation in general.
