Zipping a folder's content without the folder itself

Does anyone know how to get zip to compress a directory full of files, but not include the initial parent directory?

For example:

  --- x.info
  --- x
  --- subdirectory
	  --- file1.txt
	  --- file2.txt
If I use the command zip -9 -r archive.zip the_directory/#?, archive.zip contains "the_directory" and all files and subdirectories. I only want it to contain the files and subdirectories, like so:

  --- file1.txt
  --- file2.txt
I know I can do the following and it'll work:
  • cd the_directory
  • zip -9 -r /archive.zip #?
  • cd /

But I'd prefer it if zip can do it all in one command for cleanliness.
