The World's Oldest Culinary Art?

If a definition doesn't quickly come to mind, then the new quarterly Web magazine from the Science, Technology and Business Division of the Library of Congress can help

'Washington, D.C. The Australian Legation. Mrs. Casey, Wife of the Minister, Examining a Globe with Her Son and Daughter,' 1942 'The New Ford Cabriolet,' [between 1927 and 1934]

The first issue of the Business & Economics Research Advisor (BERA) focused on globalization -- what it means, its history and trends. The site contains links to selected authoritative discussions of this topic. For example, an article written by staff of the International Monetary Fund, "Globalization: Threat or Opportunity?" provides a general discussion of the meaning, history and impact of globalization.

Nearly 20 articles document the history of globalization. The University of Pennsylvania has dedicated an entire Web site to this topic, and if you think "globalization" is a recent phenomenon, you will want to read the site's "Globalization Since the 14th Century."

Other issues of BERA are dedicated to "The Automotive Industry" and "The Sports Industry."

The Business Reference Services main home page offers a wealth of useful information and links to business wire services, Internet resources, a Calendar of Events and a cybercasts page where you can see and hear an extraordinary range of programs that the division sponsors at the Library
