5 Cortada, James W. The Digital Flood: the diffusion of information technology across the U.S., Europe, and Asia
New York Oxford University Press, 2012 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Hard Cover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
A clean, tight copy with no markings in the text and minimal wear to the boards; gift-quality condition. A tour-de-force exposition of the global spread of technology via the Internet, showing the varied impacts in various countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. From the dust jacket blurb: "No technology seems to have spread so fast around the world in such a short period of time as computers. It was a phenomenon that predated the arrival of the Internet and that began to change how businesses, governments, and whole societies functioned. The diffusion of information technologies occurred in dozens of countries all over the world with fascinating similarities and differences. In this book, historian James W. Cortada provides the first world-wide history of how computers appeared and were used in North America, all of Europe, and in most of Asia in barely a half century. He explores the causes of diffusion, arguing that more than the technology itself, other conditions were required for the spread of computers, such as standards of living, education, the Cold War, and globalization of the economy. He argues that these technologies are the glue that hold together today's economies and are propelling increases in the quality of life of over a billion people moving into the middle class.Based on archival and secondary research, extensive use of economic data, and detailed country case studies of over a dozen nations, Cortada tells the history of how computers were discovered, invented, built, and used, and the consequences for whole regions. This is the first attempt by any expert to write a global history of information technologies, and specifically, about how these spread. It is economic and business history, but also a guide to those who want to understand what is happening today in such nations as India, China, and other emerging economies as the Computer Revolution continues. He has insights for historians, economists, public officials, and business executives. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

6 Doubt, Keith Through the Window: kinship and elopement in Bosnia-Herzegovin
Budapest Central European University Press, 2014 9633860601 / 9789633860601 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover New New Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny. From the publisher's blurb: "This book is not about war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, evil, or the killing of a society. It is about a cultural heritage, something vital to a society as a society, something that was not killed in the previous war, something that is resilient. Through the Window brings an original perspective to folklore of Bosnians at a certain period of time and the differences and similarities of the three main ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It examines the transethnic character of cultural heritage, against divisions that dominate their tragic recent past. The monograph focuses in particular on customs shared by different ethnic groups, specifically elopement, and affinal visitation. The elopement is a transformative rite of passage where an unmarried girl becomes a married woman. The affinal visitation, which follows, is a confirmatory ceremony where ritualized customs between families establish in-lawships. These customs reflect a transethnic heritage shared by people in Bosnia as a national group, including Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats." Notes, index, bibliography. xvii + 158 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
