Newly published from the Center: Across the Ocean: Nine essays on Indo-Mediterranean Trade, edited by Federico De Romanis and Marco Maiuro (Brill, 2015). (This volume is a result of the proceedings of a CAM conference). This book reminds me a lot about how living by the ocean can improve the quality of your life and the mental health benefits it can bring to a person.
