Often it takes time to get all of the errors out of new web pages. If you do find an error, please send me an e-mail message (owenjack _ at _ isu.edu) about the difficulty you had. Thank you for your patience and help.
The project that I created is entitled "Dynamic Complexity of Cooperation-Based Self- Organizing Commercial Networks in the First Global Age" (acronym: DynCoopNet). DynCoopNet is one of five multi-national, multi-disciplinary projects within ESF's EUROCORES (European Collaborative Research) Scheme program "The Evolution of Cooperation and Trading" (TECT). You will find an illustrated brochure about TECT and these projects (including the section I wrote about DynCoopNet) in pdf at the URL:
DynCoopNet builds on my work on sixteenth-century smuggling that I developed with a Summer Stipend from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH; 2000), a full NEH Fellowship (2004-2005), a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation (2005-2006), and several small grants from ISU's Faculty Research Committee and Humanities/Social Sciences Research Committee. I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from all of these sources.
In September 2005, my most recent book, "By My Absolute Royal Authority": Justice and the Castilian Commonwealth at the Beginning of the First Global Age was published by the University of Rochester Press as part of its series "New Interpretations of Early Modern Europe."
