Business News in the Early Modern Atlantic World explores the creation, dissemination, and consumption of a specific type of news, ‘business news’, within early modern commercial news networks. The volume contains eleven case studies, written by scholars from a range of disciplines, which span the breadth of the early modern Atlantic from the first appearance of serial corantos in the seventeenth century to the United States’ Declaration of Independence in the late eighteenth century.

These expert contributions showcase the range of innovative methodological and theoretical approaches which can be used to study business news, including social network analysis, textual analysis, and qualitative methods.

What is center and periphery? How can centers and peripheries be recognized by their ontological and axiological features? How does the axiological saturation of a literary field condition aesthetics? How did these factors transform center-periphery relationships to the former metropolises of Romance literatures of the Americas and Africa? What are the consequences of various deperipheralization contexts and processes for poetics? Using theoretical sections and case studies, this book surveys and investigates the limits of globalization. Through explorations of the intercultural dynamics, the aesthetic contributions of former peripheries are examined in terms of the transformative nature of peripheries on centralities.
This is a peer-reviewed book series on the history of law in the broadest sense. The approach is preferably comparative in nature, both vertically and horizontally, although studies that approach the subject matter from a different perspective are not automatically excluded. The aim of the Library is to study the historical development of particular areas of law and to explain existing differences and similarities arising in other systems where such comparison is possible. An additional aim is to contribute to a mutual understanding of different approaches to similar problems within the various legal systems. In this way, the Library provides a forum for works related to the growing need for a ius commune in today’s globalising world and provides the necessary historical information for those working in the field of harmonisation projects throughout the world.

The Library not only welcomes dogmatical studies but also offers a forum for interdisciplinary volumes that incorporate law and legal history as their main theme. The editors seek novel, path-breaking, and innovative works that reflect the highest standards of academic writing regardless of the methodologies or approaches employed in any particular volume. Such works are often scholarly monographs, but collected works of previously unpublished contributions forming a cohesive and significant contribution to a particular field of legal history are also welcomed by the editors. There is no restriction in terms of topic, chronology, or geography with the exception of works on the history of international law and on medieval law which should be submitted directly to the Library’s subseries Studies in the History of International Law or Medieval Law and Its Practice.

Authors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/or full manuscripts to the series editors Remco van Rhee, Dirk Heirbaut, and M.C. Mirow or the publisher at BRILL, Alessandra Giliberto.

The series includes the subseries Studies in the History of International Law and Studies in the History of Private Law.

How do corporations use their instrumental and structural power within markets and states to advance their policy agendas? Capitalism and Class Power examines corporate power through chapters on the U.S. military industrial complex, the rise of billionaire wealth in the U.S., the role of a transnational investment bloc in U.S.–Saudi relations, the rise of global disinformation firms, Canadian imperialism in the English-speaking Caribbean, the power of an EU corporate bloc in Caribbean trade agreements, the relationship between capitalism and poverty in rich capitalist countries, and the relationship between “neoliberalism” and capitalism. Professor Cox concludes the volume with reflections on the importance of corporate pow
