Cilla McGowan - granddaughter of movie goddess Janet Hardy - has fled the cut-throat world of Hollywood for the peace and quiet of Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. Cilla restores houses for a living and has always dreamed of returning her grandmother's country retreat to its former glory. But a tragedy haunts the old farmhouse, and Cilla's restoration project is stirring up old scandals along with the dust and cobwebs. As Cilla begins to dig deeper into her grandmother's mysterious death thirty years ago, events take a darker turn. Someone in town is determined to keep the truth buried - at any cost. Cilla's new neighbour Ford Sawyer wants to help - but Ford is exactly the kind of man Cilla is running from . . .

Focusing on the role of the "tribute system" in maintaining stability in East Asia and in fostering diplomatic and commercial exchange, Kang contrasts this history against the example of Europe and the East Asian states' skirmishes with nomadic peoples to the north and west. Although China has been the unquestioned hegemon in the region, with other political units always considered secondary, the tributary order entailed military, cultural, and economic dimensions that afforded its participants immense latitude. Europe's "Westphalian" system, on the other hand, was based on formal equality among states and balance-of-power politics, resulting in incessant interstate conflict.

Historians since Herodotus and Thucydides have claimed that the year 483 BCE marked a turning point in the history of Athens. For it was then that Themistocles mobilized the revenues from the city's highly productive silver mines to build an enormous war fleet. This income stream is thought to have become the basis of Athenian imperial power, the driving force behind its democracy and the centre of its system of public finance. But in his groundbreaking new book, Hans van Wees argues otherwise. He shows that Themistocles did not transform Athens, but merely expanded a navy-centered system of public finance that had already existed at least a generation before the general's own time, and had important precursors at least a century earlier. The author reconstructs the scattered evidence for all aspects of public finance, in archaic Greece at large and early Athens in particular, to reveal that a complex machinery of public funding and spending was in place as early as the reforms of Solon in 594 BCE. Public finance was in fact a key factor in the rise of the early Athenian state - long before Themistocles, the empire and democracy.
