This book offers the prequel to China's successful implementation of its New Silk Road, the so-called Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The preconditions for the establishment of especially the land route between China and Western Europe have been set decades ago in Central Asia. In the political, security, and economic realms, China had to find arrangements with Russia as well as the Central Asian states. Border disputes had to be resolved, a security architecture and political cooperation was lacking. The key to BRI's success today lies in China's successful diplomacy of the 1990s and 2000s. This book tells the exciting story behind the largest geopolitical infrastructure project of our time.

This bundle contains two novels-Leave it to Max and A Sheriff in Tennessee, both prequels to the popular Luchettis series. LEAVE IT TO MAX " . . . a great read . . ." Romantic Times Max Frasier is a remarkable eight-year-old boy whose imagination and clumsy feet get him in trouble. Max doesn't mean to forget he's grounded when he wanders off to follow the wind or a whim, he just forgets. Max is fascinated with things that go bump in the night and in Savannah, Georgia there are a lot of them. Livy doesn't have a clue how to cultivate the magic that lies within her child. By trying to keep him safe from broken bones, she crushes his flights of imagination. In trying to make him like other little boys, she fights against what makes him special. When Max meets Garrett Stark, famous horror author, he finds a kindred spirit. What he doesn't know is that he's found his father. Livy was the first person to offer Garrett love, and uncertain how to love back, believing himself unworthy, he had run. But from the first moment Garret sees Max, he knows there's something special about the child. Garrett had thought he'd returned to Savannah to pursue the muse that inspired his previous books. Now he knows he's come back for Livy. Can the three of them get past the lies between them to create the family and the home they've always wanted?

Gabe, who's been told he resembles his hound dog, Clint, knows better than to fall for a beautiful woman. But there is so much more to Isabelle than her face, that body. Will the two be able to deal with their issues of self-worth and society's image of what is beautiful so they can find happiness together?
