The 6th millennium BCE sees the first sedentary settlements in the southern Caucasus, with small scale farming communities established in various pockets of landscape in the lowlands of the Araxes and Kura rivers. The paper takes a micro-historical approach to explore the variability within the archaeological record deriving from new research in the Mil Steppe of southern Azerbaijan Republic and compares that with the published record from contemporary Hajji Firuz in Northwestern Iran. This allows tracing hidden patterns relating to cultural traditions and habits in the use of space, preparation of food and material culture in a close-up on similarities and differences between these two closely related areas, making individual pathways and strategies visible that distinguish human behaviour in these two areas. | Il VI millennio BCE vede la comparsa dei primi insediamenti stabili nel Caucaso meridionale, con comunità basate sull’agricoltura su piccola scala, insediate in varie aree nelle pianure dei fiumi Arax e Kura. Questo lavoro utilizza un approccio micro-storico per esplorare la variabilità all’interno del record archeologico derivante da nuove ricerche nella Mil Steppe della Repubblica dell’Azerbaijan meridionale e per confrontarlo con i dati già editi del contemporaneo sito di Hajji Firuz nell’Iran nord-occidentale. Ciò consente di individuare schemi nascosti relativi alle tradizioni e alle abitudini culturali nell’uso dello spazio, nella preparazione del cibo e nella cultura materiale, mettendo in rilievo le somiglianze e le differenze tra queste due aree strettamente correlate, rendendo visibili percorsi e strategie individuali che distinguono il comportamento umano in queste due aree.

This collective volume explores the ways merchants managed to connect different spaces all over the globe in the early modern period by organizing the movement of goods, capital, information and cultural objects between different commercial maritime systems in the Mediterranean and Atlantic basin. Merchants and Trade Networks in the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, 1550-1800 consists of four thematic blocs: theoretical considerations, the social composition of networks, connected spaces, networks between formal and informal exchange, as well as possible failures of ties. This edited volume features eleven contributions who deal with theoretical concepts such as social network analysis, globalization, social capital and trust. In addition, several chapters analyze the coexistence of mono-cultural and transnational networks, deal with network failure and shifting network geographies, and assess the impact of kinship for building up international networks between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic. This work evaluates the use of specific network types for building up connections across the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Basin stretching out to Central Europe, the Northern Sea and the Pacific. This book is of interest to those who study history of economics and maritime economics, as well as historians and scholars from other disciplines working on maritime shipping, port studies, migration, foreign mercantile communities, trade policies and mercantilism.

Recent decades have witnessed an impressive process of normative development in international law. Numerous new treaties have been concluded, at global and regional levels, establishing far-reaching international legal and regulatory regimes in important areas such as human rights, international trade, environmental protection, criminal law, intellectual property, and more. New political and judicial institutions have been established to develop, apply and adjudicate these rules. This trend has been accompanied by the growing consolidation of treaty norms into international custom, and increased references to international law in domestic settings. As a result of these developments, international relations have now reached an unprecedented level of normative density and intensity, but they have also given rise to the phenomenon of 'fragmentation'. The debate over the fragmentation of international law has largely focused on conflicts: conflicts of norms and conflicts of authority. However, the same developments that have given rise to greater conflict and contradiction in international law, have also produced a growing amount of normative equivalence between rules in different fields of international law. New treaty rules often echo existing international customary norms. Regional arrangements reinforce undertakings that already exist at the global level; and common concerns and solutions appear in many international legal fields. This book focuses on such instances of normative parallelism, developing the concept of 'multisourced equivalent norms' in international law, with contributions by leading international law experts exploring the legal and political implications of the concept in a variety of contexts that span the full spectrum of international legal norms and institutions. By concentrating on situations governed by a multitude of similar norms, the book emphasizes the importance of legal contexts and institutional settings to international law-interpretation and application.
