    Abstract: "This book examines the development of Uzbekistan's international relations since the collapse of the Soviet Union. Drawing on extensive original research, including interviews with key people, and presenting an analysis of social, economic and political developments inside Uzbekistan, the book argues that the concentration of power in the state has contributed significantly to the way in which foreign policy is conducted. It goes on to consider Uzbekistan's relations with major powers including the United States, Russia, China, Japan and the European Union, and identifies factors which have led to both Russia and China being more successful in establishing economic co-operation with Uzbekistan than other countries. The book concludes by assessing likely future developments"--

    Abstract: Even as beauty pageants have been critiqued as misogynistic and dated cultural vestiges of the past in the US and elsewhere, the pageant industry is growing in popularity across the Global South, and Nigeria is one of the countries at the forefront of this trend. In a country with over 1,000 reported pageants, these events are more than superficial forms of entertainment. Beauty Diplomacy takes us inside the world of Nigerian beauty contests to see how they are transformed into contested vehicles for promoting complex ideas about gender and power, ethnicity and belonging, and a rapidly changing articulation of Nigerian nationhood. Drawing on four case studies of beauty pageants, this book examines how Nigeria's changing position in the global political economy and existing cultural tensions inform varied forms of embodied nationalism, where contestants are expected to integrate recognizable elements of Nigerian cultural identity while also conveying a narrative of a newly-emerging, globally-relevant Nigeria. Oluwakemi M. Balogun critically examines Nigerian pageants in the context of major transitions within the nation-state, using these events as a lens through which to understand Nigerian national identity and international relations.

    Abstract: This book introduces and critically explores walking as an innovative method for doing social research, showing how its sensate and kinaesthetic attributes facilitate connections with lived experiences, journeys and memories, communities and identities. The book situates walking methods historically, sociologically, and in relation to biographical and arts-based research, as well as new work on mobilities, the digital, spatial, and the sensory. The book is organised into three sections: theorising; experiencing; and imagining walking as a new method for doing biographical research. There is a key focus upon the Walking Interview as a Biographical Method (WIBM) on the move to usefully explore migration, memory, and urban landscapes, as part of participatory, visual, and ethnographic research with marginalised communities and artists and as re-formative and transgressive. The book concludes with autobiographical walks taken by the authors and a discussion about the future of the walking interview as biographical method. Walking Methods combines theory with a series of original ethnographic and participatory research examples. Practical exercises and a guide to using walking as a method help to make this a rich resource for social science researchers, students, walking artists, and biographical researchers.

    Abstract: Traditionally viewed as an abstraction, the quantative nature of money is essential in evaluating the relationship between monetary systems and society. On the Qualities of Quantity moves beyond abstraction, exploring the conceptual diversity and everyday enactment of money's quantity. Drawing from case studies including British jewelers, blood money payments in Germanic law codes, and the quotidian use of money in cosmopolital Moscow, a Western Kenyan village, and socialist Havana, the chapters in this volume offer new theoretical and empirical interpretations of money's quantative nature as it relates to abstraction, sociality, materiality, freedom, and morality.

    Abstract: Place-based cultural knowledge - of ceremonies, songs, stories, language, kinship and ecology - binds Australian Indigenous societies together. Over the last 100 years or so, records of this knowledge in many different formats - audiocassettes, photographs, films, written texts, maps, and digital recordings - have been accumulating at an ever-increasing rate. Yet this extensive documentary heritage is dispersed. In many cases, the Indigenous people who participated in the creation of the records, or their descendants, have little idea of where to find the records or how to access them. Some records are held precariously in ad hoc collections, and their caretakers may be perplexed as to how to ensure that they are looked after.Archival Returns: Central Australia and Beyond explores the strategies and practices by which cultural heritage materials can be returned to their communities of origin, and the issues this process raises for communities, as well as for museums, galleries, and other cultural institutions.

    Abstract: In Authoritarian Modernization in Indonesia`s Early Independence Period, Farabi Fakih offers a historical analysis of the foundational years leading to Indonesia`s New Order state (1966-1998) during the early independence period. The study looks into the structural and ideological state formation during the so-called Liberal Democracy (1950-1957) and Sukarno`s Guided Democracy (1957-1965). In particular, it analyses how the international technical aid network and the dominant managerialist ideology of the period legitimized a new managerial elite. The book discusses the development of managerial education in the civil and military sectors in Indonesia. The study gives a strongly backed argument that Sukarno`s constitutional reform during the Guided Democracy period inadvertently provided a strong managerial blueprint for the New Order developmentalist state.

    Abstract: Sprechen Bengalinnen und Bengalen von Kalkutta, tun sie's mit leuchtenden Augen; für sie ist die Stadt die unangefochtene Kulturhauptstadt Indiens. Im Westen allerdings hatte Kalkutta den Ruf eines schwarzen Lochs, einer Kloake; für Reiseschriftsteller des 20. Jahrhunderts war die Metropole - so der Historiker Jeffrey N. Dupée - die "exemplarische urbane Horrorstory".Zwischen Selbstwahrnehmung und Aussensicht klafft eine Lücke, welche der Forograf Samuel Schütz und der Klangdokumentarist Thomas Kaiser bei zahlreichen Aufenthalten in Kalkutta ausloteten.Schütz fotografierte mit einer Lochkamera Schritt für Schritt Strassenzüge, Kreuzungen, Werkstätten und die Fährstelle beim alten Kali-Tempel in Kalighat, während Kaiser Bewohnerinnen und Bewohner der Stadt nach ihren Träumen und Lebensgeschichten befragte.

    Abstract: Uns allen sind die im Comic verwendeten, kolonialistisch geprägten und stereotypen Bilder des afrikanischen Kontinents und der dort lebenden Menschen bekannt. Besonders ältere Comics wie Tim und Struppi oder Micky Maus haben das Bild des »ungezähmten« Kontinents und seiner »wilden« Bewohner aufgegriffen, aber auch moderne Superheldencomics spiegeln den westlichen Blick auf Afrika.Doch wer kennt schon die afrikanische Sicht? Den genuin afrikanischen Comic? Die Herausgeber des Buches stellen ein vielfältges Spektrum afrikanischer Comic-Kunst vor - von Superhelden- und Undergroundcomics bis hin zu solchen mit propagandistischem Inhalt oder Bildungsanspruch.Lehr- und Aufklärungscomics hatten in Afrika in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts ihren Aufschwung. Sachcomics oder Bildungscomics sind für die Forschung und die Comic-Kultur auf dem afrikanischen Kontinent aus verschiedenen Gründen zentral. Das Medium Comic hat den Vorteil, Menschen mit niedrigem Bildungsniveau zu erreichen und diese auf ein­fache Art und Weise über komplexe Sachverhalte aufzuklären.Durch das Vorhaben, auch Menschen mit niedrigem Bildungsniveau zu erreichen, bildeten sich Publikationsgruppen für Comics mit dem Ziel der Aufklärung. Eine dieser Gruppen ist beispielsweise der SACHED Trust in Südafrika oder das Legal Assistance Centre in Namibia. Aber auch etliche NGOs sowie UNICEF publizieren Aufklärungscomics für ein afrikanisches Publikum. Ein nennenswertes Künstlerkollektiv ist die südafrikanische Storyteller Group, die insbesondere zwischen 1991 und 1996 sehr aktiv war. Mit Bezug auf Afrika werden komplexe Themen wie Sklaverei und Sklavenhandel beispielsweise in Werken wie Mémoire de l`esclavage vermittelt.Im Comic kann Geschichte visualisiert werden, ohne dass dabei auf die textliche Ebene verzichtet werden muss. Sie können den Geschichtsunterricht als zusätzliches Medium ergänzen und auch zur Auseinandersetzung mit Geschichte in der Freizeit anregen. Gerade einem jungen oder wenig belesenen Publikum können so Inhalte leichter zugänglich gemacht werden.

    Abstract: Les problématiques de santé en Afrique connaissent un tournant majeur depuis les années 2000. La Global health et son objectif d`inscrire les chocs épidémiologiques dans les agendas internationaux s`illustrent par l`intervention inédite d`une constellation d`acteurs sur les terrains de la santé. Ces nouveaux faisceaux de partenariats public-privé, de réseaux transnationaux, de programmes internationaux, sur lesquels se redéploient de manière inégale des trajectoires de politiques nationales, renouvellent la pensée politique de la santé en Afrique. Ce dossier soumet à l`épreuve des faits cette reconfiguration des politiques de santé, dissèque les déterminants des progrès et des inégalités, ainsi que les apories qui fondent les rapports entre l`économie de marché et les impératifs de santé publique. Les textes de ce dossier montrent, sur des politiques spécifiques, des césures et des continuums dans la manière de penser la santé tout en mettant en lumière des angles morts de la Global Health.

    Abstract: This paper discusses the narratives regarding (un)employment which emerged before, during and after German reunification in the East German town of Zwickau. Previous research in the anthropology of postsocialism has argued that the experience of work in socialism provided a foundation for East Germans to contest the viability of modern capitalism. However, I argue that such a "social" alternative has been to a large extent defeated by neoliberal hegemonic discourse. I do so by focusing on the narratives of worth and worthlessness in relation to employment, as well as the processes that shaped these narratives. First, I briefly present my field site and elaborate on the methods of my field research on the automotive industry in Zwickau. Second, using the life story of one of my informants, I show the disparity between personal experiences of dispossession and individual moral economic dispositions. Finally, I discuss the heightened moral and social importance of work in postsocialist former East Germany, the turbulence of its labour market since 1989, the process of welfare state retrenchment, and the narrative of labour shortage as factors which paved the way for the establishment of neoliberal hegemony. These developments, I argue, also contributed to framing issues of employment in individual rather than structural terms. (Abstract)

    Abstract: At the turn of the twentieth century, thousands of Central Asians made the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. Traveling long distances, many lived for extended periods in Ottoman cities dotting the routes. Though technically foreigners, these Muslim colonial subjects often blurred the lines between pilgrims and migrants. Not quite Ottoman, and not quite foreign, Central Asians became the sultan's spiritual subjects. Their status was continually negotiated by Ottoman statesmen as attempts to exclude foreign Muslim nationals from the body politic were compromised by a changing international legal order and the caliphate's ecumenical claims.Spiritual Subjects examines the paradoxes of nationality reform and pan-Islamic politics in late Ottoman history. Lâle Can unravels how imperial belonging was wrapped up in deeply symbolic instantiations of religion, as well as prosaic acts and experiences that paved the way to integration into Ottoman communities. A complex system of belonging emergedone where it was possible for a Muslim to be both, by law, a foreigner and a subject of the Ottoman sultan-caliph. This panoramic story informs broader transregional and global developments, with important implications for how we make sense of subjecthood in the last Muslim empire and the legacy of religion in the Turkish Republic.

    Abstract: Vor dem Hintergrund, dass die Zahl der extrem armen Menschen in vielen Entwicklungsländern trotz vielfacher Bemühungen nicht rückläufig ist, führte das Institut für Entwicklung und Frieden (INEF) der Universität Duisburg-Essen ein vierjähriges Forschungsprojekt mit dem Titel "Wege aus extremer Armut, Vulnerabilität und Ernährungsunsicherheit" (AVE) durch. Ziel des Projektes war es, Empfehlungen für die deutsche staatliche Entwicklungszusammenarbeit (EZ) hinsichtlich der besseren Erreichbarkeit von extrem armen, vulnerablen und ernährungsunsicheren Bevölkerungsgruppen und der nachhaltigen Verbesserung ihrer Lebenssituation zu entwickeln. Der Fokus der Forschung lag dabei auf der Untersuchung von Projekten, die schwerpunktmäßig vor allem innerhalb folgender Themenbereiche arbeiten:(i) Zugang zu Land und Rechtssicherheit bei Landbesitz sowie -nutzung, (ii) Wertschöpfungsketten und (iii) soziale Sicherung. Dabei wurden Partizipation, soziokulturelle Faktoren sowie Genderaspekte als Querschnittsthemen stets mitberücksichtigt. In den Fokusländern Äthiopien, Benin, Burkina Faso, Kambodscha und Kenia wurden zu den genannten Schwerpunktthemen sogenannte Good Practice-Vorhaben identifiziert und in einemzweiten Schritt vor Ort auf ihre Wirksamkeit hin untersucht.Basierend auf unseren Feldforschungen und Recherchen der vergangenen vier Jahre befasst sich der vorliegende Beitrag mit dem Themenbereich der Wertschöpfungsketten sowie seinen Wirkungen und Herausforderungen und leitet daraus Empfehlungen für die EZ ab. Die überwiegende Mehrzahl der Armen und Ernährungsunsicheren in Entwicklungsländern lebt in ländlichen Gebieten und ist dort vorrangig von der Landwirtschaft abhängig. Die Teilhabe an landwirtschaftlichen Wertschöpfungsketten stellt somit für diese Menschen einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Armutsminderung und Ernährungssicherung dar. (Projekthintergrund)

    Abstract: Publié en 1961, à une époque où la violence coloniale se déchaîne avec la guerre d`Algérie, saisi à de nombreuses reprises lors de sa parution aux Éditions François Maspero, le livre Les Damnés de la terre, préfacé par Jean-Paul Sartre, a connu un destin exceptionnel. Il a servi et sert encore aujourd'hui d`inspiration et de référence à des générations de militants anticolonialistes. Son analyse du traumatisme du colonisé dans le cadre du système colonial et son projet utopique d`un tiers monde révolutionnaire porteur d`un « homme neuf » restent un grand classique du tiers-mondisme, l`uvre capitale et le testament politique de Frantz Fanon. Dans cette nouvelle édition, la préface de Alice Cherki, psychiatre et psychanalyste, auteur du Portrait de Frantz Fanon (Seuil, 2000), et la postface de Mohammed Harbi, combattant de la première heure pour la libération de son pays et historien de l'Algérie contemporaine, auteur de Une vie debout. Mémoires politiques 1945-1962 (La Découverte, 2001), restituent l'importance contemporaine de la pensée de Frantz Fanon. (Umschlagtext)

    Abstract: Southern Theory presents the case for a radical re-thinking of social science and its relationships to knowledge, power and democracy on a world scale.Mainstream social science pictures the world as understood by the educated and affluent in Europe and North America. From Weber and Keynes to Friedman and Foucault, theorists from the global North dominate the imagination of social scientists, and the reading lists of students, all over the world. For most of modern history, the majority world has served social science only as a data mine.Yet the global South does produce knowledge and understanding of society. Through vivid accounts of critics and theorists, Raewyn Connell shows how social theory from the world periphery has power and relevance for understanding our changing world from al-Afghani at the dawn of modern social science, to Raul Prebisch in industrialising Latin America, Ali Shariati in revolutionary Iran, Paulin Hountondji in post-colonial Benin, Veena Das and Ashis Nandy in contemporary India, and many others.With clarity and verve, Southern Theory introduces readers to texts, ideas and debates that have emerged from Australia's Indigenous people, from Africa, Latin America, south and south-west Asia. It deals with modernisation, gender, race, class, cultural domination, neoliberalism, violence, trade, religion, identity, land, and the structure of knowledge itself. Southern Theory shows how this tremendous resource has been disregarded by mainstream social science. It explores the challenges of doing theory in the periphery, and considers the role Southern perspectives should have in a globally connected system of knowledge. Southern Theory draws on sociology, anthropology, history, psychology, economics, philosophy and cultural studies, with wide-ranging implications for social science in the 21st century.

    Abstract: Aufgrund des COVID-19-Lockdowns ging das südafrikanische Bruttoinlandsprodukt zwischen dem ersten und zweiten Quartal 2020 um 51 Prozent zurück. Ein kürzlich veröffentlichter Bericht der Weltbank schätzt, dass durch die Pandemie 26 bis 40 Millionen Menschen in Afrika südlich der Sahara zusätzlich in die Armut rutschen werden. Gleichzeitig zeigen einige afrikanische Volkswirtschaften erste Anzeichen wirtschaftlicher Erholung.Because of the Covid-19 lockdowns, South Africa`s gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 51 per cent from the first to the second quarter of 2020. A recent World Bank report suggests that an additional 26 to 40 million subSaharan Africans could fall into poverty due to the pandemic. At the same time, some African economies are reporting initial signs of economic recovery.

    Abstract: Sehnsucht nach Ganzheit, Vitalität, Genesung oder Erlösung. Das Heft nimmt heterogene Inszenierungen des »Heils« als Austragungsorte kulturellen Widerstreits in den Blick. Welche gesellschaftlichen Tendenzen werden in solchen Inszenierungen verhandelt oder imaginär stillgelegt - und was hat das für politische Konsequenzen? Das »Versprechen« des Heils wird in seiner Doppeldeutigkeit untersucht: als Verheißung und als Fehlleistung. Denn einzulösen ist das In-Aussicht-Gestellte sicher nicht. Versprochen ist versprochen.Mit einer Übersetzung von Hélène Clastres »La terre sans mal« (Auszug). (Verlagsangaben)

    Abstract: Vor dem Hintergrund, dass die Zahl der extrem armen Menschen in vielen Entwicklungsländern trotz vielfacher Bemühungen nicht rückläufig ist, führte das Institut für Entwicklung und Frieden (INEF) der Universität Duisburg-Essen ein vierjähriges Forschungsprojekt mit dem Titel "Wege aus extremer Armut, Vulnerabilität und Ernährungsunsicherheit" (AVE) durch. Ziel des Projektes war es, Empfehlungen für die deutsche staatliche Entwicklungszusammenarbeit (EZ) hinsichtlich der besseren Erreichbarkeit von extrem armen, vulnerablen und ernährungsunsicheren Bevölkerungsgruppen und der nachhaltigen Verbesserung ihrer Lebenssituation zu entwickeln. Der Fokus unserer Forschung lag auf der Untersuchung von Projekten, die schwerpunktmäßig vor allem innerhalb folgender Themenbereiche arbeiten: (i) Zugang zu Land und Rechtssicherheit bei Landbesitz sowie -nutzung, (ii) Wertschöpfungsketten und (iii) soziale Sicherung. Als übergreifende Querschnittsthemen wurden soziokulturelle Aspekte von Entwicklung, Partizipation und Gender stets mitberücksichtigt. In den Fokusländern Äthiopien, Benin, Burkina Faso, Kambodscha und Kenia wurden zu den genannten Schwerpunktthemen sogenannte Good Practice-Vorhaben identifiziert und in einem zweiten Schritt vor Ort auf ihre Wirksamkeit hin untersucht.Basierend auf unseren Feldforschungen und Recherchen der vergangenen vier Jahre befasst sich der vorliegende Beitrag mit dem Zugang zu Land und der Sicherung von Landrechten im Rahmen von Maßnahmen der EZ. Die überwiegende Mehrzahl der Armen und Ernährungsunsicheren in den Entwicklungsländern lebt in ländlichen Gebieten und ist dort vorrangig von der Landwirtschaft abhängig. Der Zugang zu Land und die zumindest längerfristige Nutzungssicherung sind somit für diese Menschen überlebenswichtig.

    Abstract: African migrants have become increasingly demonised in public debate and political rhetoric. There is much speculation about the incentives and trajectories of Africans on the move, and often these speculations are implicitly or overtly geared towards discouraging and policing their movements. What is rarely understood or scrutinised however, are the intricate ways in which African migrants are marginalised and excluded from public discourse; not only in Europe but in migrant-receiving contexts across the globe. Invisibility in African Displacements offers a series of case studies that explore these dynamics. What tends to be either ignored or demonised in public debates on African migration are the deliberate strategies of avoidance or assimilation that migrants make use of to gain access to the destinations or opportunities they seek, or to remain below the radar of restrictive governance regimes.This books offers fine-grained analysis of the ways in which African migrants negotiate structural and strategic invisibilities, adding innovative approaches to our understanding of both migrant vulnerabilities and resilience.

    Abstract: Between 1986 and 1994, East Africa's postcolonial, political settlement was profoundly challenged as four revolutionary 'liberation' movements seized power in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Rwanda and Uganda. After years of armed struggle against vicious dictatorships, these movements transformed from rebels to rulers, promising to deliver 'fundamental change'. This study exposes, examines and underlines the acute challenges each has faced in doing so. Drawing on over 130 interviews with the region's post-liberation elite, undertaken over the course of a decade, Jonathan Fisher takes a fresh and empirically-grounded approach to explaining the fast-moving politics of the region over the last three decades, focusing on the role and influence of its guerrilla governments. East Africa after Liberation sheds critical light on the competing pressures post-liberation governments contend with as they balance reformist aspirations with accommodation of counter-vailing interests, historical trajectories and their own violent organisational cultures.

    Abstract: This book explores the nature of parliamentary representation within the autocratic regimes of Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan. It argues that although many parliaments are elected under flawed or non-competitive elections, autocratic governments are nevertheless aware of the need to appear representative and accessible to the demands of citizens and that even limited parliaments manage to represent their voters, sometimes in ways not intended by the regime. The book examines how elites structure, manage and organize representation; how they foster the desired kind of representation; and how they limit the ways in which parliaments fulfil their representative functions. The book concludes that Kazakhstan is a more hegemonic form of autocracy and the Kyrgyz Republic a more competitive form and that the degree to which parliaments fulfil their representational functions and how much room for manoeuvre individual MPs have depends largely on how much parties control candidate selection and the daily schedule and administrative resources of parliaments.

    Abstract: "This book analyses the social, political and religious life of the Hyolmo people of Nepal. Highlighting patterns of change and adaptation, it addresses the Shamanic-Buddhist interface that exists in the animated landscape of the Himalayas. Opening with an analysis of the ethnic revival of Nepal, the book first considers the Himalayan religious landscape and its people. Specific attention is then given to Helambu, home of the Hyolmo people, within the framework of Tibetan Buddhism. The discussion then turns to the persisting shamanic tradition of the region and the ritual dynamics of Hyolmo culture. The book concludes by considering broader questions of Hyolmo identity in the Nepalese context, as well as reflecting on the interconnection of landscape, ritual and identity. Offering a unique insight into a fascinating Himalayan culture and its formation, this book will be of great interest to scholars of indigenous peoples and religion across religious studies, Buddhist studies, cultural anthropology and South Asian studies"--

    Abstract: Isolation measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 means that social researchers who have for doing fieldwork in a pandemic - specifically, ideas for avoiding in-person interactions by using mediated forms that will achieve similar ends. Social research has been conducted online for many years, of course. There are many examples of using online survey tools or doing content analyses or ethnographies using existing online interactions as research materials. Interviews have been conducted by phone or Skype for a long time. This document was initially directed at ways for how to turn fieldwork that was initially planned as using face-to-face methods into a more `hands-off` mode. However, people have added useful material about `born digital` research (content already generated on the internet by online interactions), which provides an alternative source of social research materials if researchers decide to go down that path.

    Series Statement: Museums in Focus
    Keywords: Museum Museumskunde ; Sammler und Sammlung ; Kritik
    Abstract: Anti-Museum charts the development of the anti-museum as a concept and as it has been realised in practice. Drawing on a range of case studies, including the New Museum and PS1 in New York, Mona in Australia, Art42 in Paris and Donald Judd`s Marfa, the book assesses their potential to engage museum publics in new ways. Anti-museums seek to breathe relational and theatricalised vitality into the objects they exhibit, by connecting them to the contexts of their making, to their social life outside the museum, to visitors' lives via their transformative capacities for change, and by being a place of dialogue, exchange and transformation, rather than instruction. Documenting the ways in which they have been created by artists, collectors, and curators, the book also examines the extent to which anti-museums connect with other museums through the exchange of values and resources. Critically, it asks whether, after some 40 years of `new museology`, such institutions are still able to offer something fresh and valuable. Anti-Museum provides a sharp and incisive account of the anti-museum as it has been imagined, realised and experienced, and as it has relevance for understanding and working in the contemporary museum world. As such, the book will be of great interest to scholars and students engaged in the study of museums, cultural economy, inclusive urban regeneration, the democratisation of art and contemporary art. It should also appeal to museum professionals around the world.

    Abstract: Voices from the Kavango explores the contribution that the life histories and the voices of the contract labourers make to our understanding of the contract labour system in Namibia. In particular it asks: is it possible to view the migration of the Kavango labourers as a progressive step, or does the paradigm of exploitation and suppression remain the dominant one? The study highlights contract labourers engaging in a defeating activity and their disappointment with the little rewards which were non-lasting solutions to their problems. The realization of their entrapment under the contract system and the eventual frustrations led to the political mobilization for independence by SWAPO. (Umschlag)

    Abstract: In the aftermath of the seventh-century Islamic conquest of Iran, Zoroastrians departed for India. Known as the Parsis, they slowly lost contact with their ancestral land until the nineteenth century, when steam-powered sea travel, the increased circulation of Zoroastrian-themed books, and the philanthropic efforts of Parsi benefactors sparked a new era of interaction between the two groups.Tracing the cultural and intellectual exchange between Iranian nationalists and the Parsi community during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Exile and the Nation shows how this interchange led to the collective reimagining of Parsi and Iranian national identityand the influence of antiquity on modern Iranian nationalism, which previously rested solely on European forms of thought. Iranian nationalism, Afshin Marashi argues, was also the byproduct of the complex history resulting from the demise of the early modern Persianate cultural system, as well as one of the many cultural heterodoxies produced within the Indian Ocean world. Crossing the boundaries of numerous fields of study, this book reframes Iranian nationalism within the context of the connected, transnational, and global history of the modern era. (Klappentext)

    Abstract: In den Jahren 1971/72 waren in Mitteleuropa und Südasien zwei gegenläufige Bewegungen zu beobachten. Während die deutsch-deutsche Entspannungspolitik den Ost-West-Konflikt zu überwinden suchte, entspann sich zwischen den beiden Nachfolgestaaten Britisch-Indiens ein Krieg, der zur Teilung Pakistans und Gründung Bangladeschs führen sollte. Indien unterstützte die bengalische Unabhängigkeitsbewegung gegen die pakistanische Zentralregierung.Entscheidend sind hierbei die unterschiedlichen Block-Allianzen der jeweils agierenden Nationalstaaten: Waren Bundesrepublik und DDR ihre Loyalitäten im Kalten Krieg recht klar, so blieben sie im bündnisfreien Indien bewusst weitaus unklarer. Dennoch war mit Abschluss des Indisch-Sowjetischen Freundschaftsvertrages im August 1971 eine (vor allem sicherheitspolitische) Annäherung der indischen Regierung an die UdSSR zu beobachten, derweil Pakistan schon früher zu einem wichtigen strategischen Partner der USA auf dem Subkontinent avanciert war.Ausgehend von der Hypothese, dass für Bundesrepublik und DDR Anfang der 1970er Jahre die Auseinandersetzung miteinander ihre Loyalitäten im Kalten Krieg überwog, untersucht die vorliegende Arbeit die Haltung der beiden deutschen Staaten im Bangladeschkrieg.

    Abstract: This volume proposes an alternative development paradigm to the existing capitalist extant one, and studies how it is distinctly different from the older system. Rooted in the principles of solidarity between humans, as well as between humans and nature, this alternative paradigm replaces the methodological individualism of capitalism by `reciprocal altruism`, a new logic of capital, to give pace and direction to the development process.The essays in this volume highlight instances of various forms of solidarity that have emerged in the contemporary worldsuch as resistance movements of informal workers, the formation of an autonomous cooperative of self-employed waste pickers in India, called SWaCH, and Brazil and Cuba`s experiments with Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE)to achieve long sustaining cohesive development. They also provide recommendations as to how the State can mold its development process to the benefit of marginalized communities, especially in India and Bangladesh.Featuring insights from leading experts in the field, Theorizing Cohesive Development will be an indispensable read for students and researchers of development studies, economics, political economy, political science and sociology, minority studies and Asian studies.

    Abstract: The Tarikh al-fattash is one of the most important and celebrated sources for the history of pre-colonial West Africa, yet it has confounded scholars for decades with its inconsistences and questions surrounding its authorship. In this study, Mauro Nobili examines and challenges existing theories on the chronicle, arguing that much of what we have presumed about the work is deeply flawed. Making extensive use of previously unpublished Arabic sources, Nobili demonstrates that the Tarikh al-fattash was in fact written in the nineteenth century by a Fulani scholar, Nuh b. al-Tahir, who modified pre-existing historiographical material as a political project in legitimation of the West African Islamic state known as the Caliphate of Hamdallahi and its founding leader Ahmad Lobbo. Contextualizing its production within the broader development of the religious and political landscape of West Africa, this study represents a significant moment in the study of West African history and of the evolution of Arabic historical literature in Timbuktu and its surrounding regions.

    Abstract: Das von der deutschen Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) im Auftrag des Bundesministeriums für wirtschaftliche Zusammenarbeit und Entwicklung (BMZ) geförderte Forstprogramm ("Waldschutz") Vietnam besteht aus insgesamt zehn seit 1995 geplanten, eingeleiteten und größtenteils bereits abgeschlossenen Einzelmaßnahmen. Ziel des Gesamtprogramms ist ein signifikanter Beitrag zum Ressourcenschutz in dem südostasiatischen Land, dessen Ökosystem insbesondere durch den Vietnamkrieg, aber auch durch übermäßigen Holzeinschlag staatlicher Forstbetriebe, Umwandlung von Naturwäldern in landwirtschaftliche Flächen sowie übermäßige Brandrodung sehr stark gelitten hat.Indem in Vietnam Wälder rehabilitiert, aufgeforstet und durch die ansässige Bevölkerung selbst nachhaltig bewirtschaftet werden, leistet das Gesamtprogramm auch einen wichtigen Beitrag zur Armutsminderung in den Bergregionen des Landes. Diese großteils von ethnischen Minderheiten besiedelten Zonen wurden jahrzehntelang von der Regierung vernachlässigt, so dass die Menschen hier von der generellen positiven wirtschaftlichen Entwicklung Vietnams wenig bis gar keinen Nutzen ziehen konnten.Als umso wichtiger erwies sich der seit Beginn des Programms gewählte Ansatz, die Menschen in den Bergzonen vor allem Nord- und Zentralvietnams von "ihrem" Wald unmittelbar profitieren zu lassen. Dies erfolgt durch den im sozialistischen System Vietnams sehr innovativen Ansatz, einen Großteil der vom Programm erfassten Waldflächen der Dorfbevölkerung direkt zur Bewirtschaftung zu übertragen. Durch die Ausstellung von langfristigen Nutzungsrechtszertifikaten (den "roten Büchern") konnten Zehntausende von Familien sicher sein, von ihrer Arbeit in individuell zugeteilten Waldstücken langfristig einen Teil ihres Lebensunterhalts erzielen zu können.Hinzu kommen Dorfgemeinschaften, die für den aktiven Waldschutz bezahlt werden oder von der Waldregeneration profitieren, indem sie die dadurch deutlich zunehmenden Nichtholzprodukte des Waldes gewinnbringend verwerten. Dies betrifft bis heute rund 140.000 Familien mit zwischenzeitlich mehr als 130.000 Hektar aufgeforsteter oder rehabilitierter Waldfläche sowie Zehntausende Hektar Staatswald, der auf Initiative des Programms von lokalen Gemeinschaften verwaltet wird.

    Abstract: "How has the Ismaili branch of Shi'i Islam interacted with other Islamic communities throughout history? The groups and movements that make up Islamic civilisation are diverse and varied yet, while scholarship has analysed many branches of Islam in isolation, the exchanges and mutual influences between them has not been sufficiently recognised. This book traces the interactions between Ismaili intellectual thought and the philosophies of other Islamic groups to shed light on the complex and interwoven nature of Islamic civilisation. Based on a broad range of primary sources from the early medieval to the late nineteenth century, the book brings together different disciplines within Islamic Studies to cover polemical and doctrinal literature, law, mysticism, rituals and philosophy. The main Ismaili groups, such as the Fatimids, Nizaris and Tayyibis, are represented, as well as lesser known traditions such as that associated with the mountain region of Badakhshan in Central Asia. Religious syncretism, particularly in the Indian subcontinent and in Yemen, is considered alongside cultural interactions as reflected in the circulation of books in Fatimid markets, and various literary and mythical traditions, some still little explored. The chapters include contributions from leading experts in the field shed new light on the close and complex relationships very different Islamic groups and movements have enjoyed throughout the centuries."--

    Abstract: Institutionskritik ist hochaktuell und aus den kuratorischen Debatten nicht mehr wegzudenken. Sie dient als Folie für kritische Akteure, um sich im Kunstfeld zu positionieren. Als künstlerische Praxis vielfach untersucht, blieb bisher jedoch ungeklärt: Wie reagieren Kunstinstitutionen und kuratorische Praktiken auf Institutionskritik? Franziska Brüggmann gibt entlang dieser Frage einen systematischen Überblick über den institutionskritischen Diskurs und zeichnet die institutionellen Strategien der Kritik nach. Aktuelle Fallstudien bringen dabei gegenwärtige Formen von Institutionskritik nahe und zeigen deren neue Schauplätze. (Umschlagtext)

    Abstract: This book addresses the Jihad movement that created the largest African state of the 19th century: the Sokoto Caliphate, existing for 99 years from 1804 until its military defeat by European colonial troops in 1903. The author carves out the entanglements of jihadist ideology and warfare with geographical concepts at Africa's periphery of the Islamic world: geographical knowledge about the boundary between the "Land of Islam" and the "Land of War''; the pre-colonial construction of "the Muslim" and "the unbeliever"; and the transfer of ideas between political elites and mobile actors (traders, pilgrims, slaves, soldiers), whose reports helped shape new definitions of the African frontier of Islam. Research for this book is based on the study of a very wide range of Arabic and West African (Hausa, Fulfulde) manuscripts. Their policies reveal the persistent reciprocity of jihadist warfare and territorial statehood, of Africa and the Middle East. (Umschlagtext)

    Abstract: The present work is a study on the status and identity of Dalit women in India with special reference to South Andhra Lutheran Church (SALC). The experience of the struggles, sufferings, aspirations and victories of Dalit women, is the foundation in theologizing and constructing `Dalit Feminist Hermeneutics.` Using the concept of "identity" as a hermeneutical tool, the research is engaged in the basic theological issue, i.e., `Dalit women as the Image of God.` By drawing on the work of several Feminist and Dalit theologians, an attempt is made by the author to `depatriarchalize` the patriarchal ideology that boxed God; and to reconstruct God`s image in various metaphors which are empowering. This learned presentation contributes toward the said theology in line with understanding, reflection, interpretation and articulation of Indian Christian Theology at large. It contributes methodologically to the wider feminist movement in India. The theological enterprise in this research work, takes both the academic circles and the grassroots in to serious consideration, where the Bible becomes a major socio-religious context.

    Abstract: This collection of essays presents the very latest research on the peace-building dimension of sacred and secular journeys at individual, societal, regional and global levels. Not since the 1980s has there been any concerted effort to explore the potential of such journeys in helping to bridge the divide that separates people of diverse ethnicities, religions and cultures. This volume gathers together empirical studies, regional analyses, and personal reflections from four continents and twelve countries, including Sri Lanka, Syria, Ethiopia, and Indonesia, which highlight the potential of religious tourism and pilgrimage for promoting interfaith solidarity, natural dialoguie and inner peace. It will be of interest to religion, tourism and peace scholars, as well as to political scientists and anthropologists. (Umschlagtext)

    Abstract: On assiste, depuis quelques années en Afrique, au déploiement concomitant d`ethnographies carcérales et à l`inscription de la question pénitentiaire dans le champ du développement, en tension entre enjeux sécuritaires et droits de l`homme. Tandis que les agences internationales (re)produisent un discours sur la prison africaine, appréhendée comme un objet à réformer, ce dossier, à contre-courant des idées reçues et des lectures stéréotypées, entend ouvrir la discussion à partir d`enquêtes de terrain, issues majoritairement d`un programme collectif et pluridisciplinaire, et dégager les grandes questions qui sous-tendent la pluralité des réalités carcérales. L`expérience carcérale et l`économie des valeurs circulant en détention et produites hors et dans les murs sont ainsi analysées. Une place est également ménagée aux voix des détenus, trop souvent inaudibles. Les dimensions politiques de l`incarcération, des plus évidentes à celles plus implicites, sont abordées. Enfin, les multiples aspects de la réforme et de ses paradoxes sont discutés, au regard notamment de la place historique du travail dans les discours sur la punition et sur la réinsertion. Finalement, ce dossier réaffirme l`importance de la réflexion sur les prisons, et au-delà sur les rapports de domination et sur les inégalités sociales à l`échelle du continent. Ce faisant, il affirme aussi la place de l`Afrique dans le débat mondialisé sur la peine de prison. (Verlagsangaben)

    Abstract: Throughout the world, human rights have grown in prominence over the years. Despite this feat, numerous global events in the past and in recent times, especially those driven by political interests, show that respect for the ideals of human rights are far from being realised in practice. With approaches largely state-centred in nature, these events fundamentally point to a marked gap between human rights norms and practice. What is unfortunately and clearly afforded a low priority or no priority at all in these state-based and politically vested contestations are missing links between international human rights norms and cultural or traditional belief systems and practices. Specifically, this thesis argues that when it comes to beliefs in witchcraft and its practices, there remains a sizeable gap between theory and practice, and this creates the thorny and contentious issue of the unpleasant conflict between international human rights and specific cultural belief systems, practices, norms and values. With a view to analysing the dichotomy between culture and human rights, this dissertation positions, explores and indeed questions beliefs in and practices of witchcraft in Ghana, and particularly Ghana`s alleged witches` camps, within the framework of international human rights.

    Abstract: "Reading Popol Wuj offers readers and teachers a guide to understanding the Popol Wuj, one of the oldest and most important texts from the pre-Conquest Americas. Originally transcribed into Latin by a Dominican priest in 1700, the by Popol Wuj records the creation stories of K'iche Maya people. The original Latin text and its many more recent translations have been key for scholars and students seeking to understand Maya culture and worldview. Most recently, scholars of global literatures and ethnic studies have incorporated the Popol Wuj into classroom curricula as an example of a foundational non-Western text. In this book, Henne, who was born and raised in Guatemala and is fluent in the K'iche Maya language, offers a decolonial framework for understanding the Popol Wuj, and he provides tools for better understanding the text from an Indigenous perspective"--

    Abstract: The French missionary-linguist Émile Petitot (1838-1916) spent twenty years near the Arctic Circle in Canada, publishing numerous works on First Nations languages and practices. Over time, however, he descended into delirium and began to summon imaginary persecutions, pen improbable interpretations of his Indigenous hosts, and burst into schizoid fury. Delving into thousands of pages in letters and memoirs that Petitot left behind, Pierre Déléage has reconstructed the missionary`s tragic story. He takes us on a gripping journey into the illogic and hyperlogic of a mind entranced with Indigenous peoples against the backdrop of repressive church policies and the emergent social sciences of the nineteenth century. Apocalyptic visions from the Bible and prophetic movements among First Nations peoples merged in the missionary`s deteriorating psyche, triggering paroxysms of violence against his colleagues and himself. Whoever wishes to understand the contradictions of living between radically different societies will find this anthropological novella hard to put down. (Verlagsangaben)

    Abstract: As of yet, little is known about the emergence of agriculture in the Central Andes. The results of the investigations of the Middle Archaic settlement of Pernil Alto (3800-3000 BC) presented in this volume now provide important insights for a better understanding of this development.The site of Pernil Alto is located in the foothills of the Andes in Southern Peru. Extensive excavations were carried out here by the German Archaeological Institute. Within the scope of this research, the economic development, form of mobility and social structure were investigated. For this purpose, the discovered remains (artefacts, dwellings, burials, botanical and faunal remains, and human remains) were analyzed and numerous 14C-analyses and Sr-analyses were carried out. The results were combined in a multi-proxy analysis and evaluated in relation to paleo-environmental findings. The result is a six-phase settlement with intra-site burials. During the first phase (ca. 3800-3300 BC), it was a settlement of foragers that relied on food collection, but already cultivated domesticated plants in an additional low-level food production. From the second phase (ca. 3300 BC) onwards, the settlement had developed into a permanent, structured village in which agriculture constituted the basis of subsistence.This is hitherto one of the oldest documented villages in the Americas where agriculture formed the basis of subsistence. The results of the research conducted at Pernil Alto thus contribute to a better understanding of the formation of slightly later first complex, marine-agricultural societies on Peru`s central coast.

    Keywords: Tschechien Namibia ; Identität ; Diaspora ; Kindheit ; Flüchtling ; Umsiedlung ; Kultureinfluss ; Krieg und Gesellschaft ; Unabhängigkeitskampf
    Abstract: This book focuses on the history and problematic sense of belonging of Naminian Czechs, originally group of prominent child war refugees from Angola who were admitted by the Czechoslovak government in 1985 for education as an expression of international solidarity assistance to SWAPO, a liberation movement fighting for the independence of Namibia. This educational project with elements of social engineering was interrupted in 1991, after Namibia achieved its independence and Czecholovakia had overthrown the communist regime. The political decision to relocate the children to Namibia had a dramatic impact on their future lives. The experience of living in two culturally different environments and especially the realisation that both societies denied their belonging have led to their fatal discovery that they are doomed to rmain outsiders living on the border between two worlds. Naminian Czechs never fully integrated into Namibian society, moreover they proudly proclaim the belonging to the Czech Republic which they consider to be their only and true home. (Umschlagtext)

    Series Statement: Egalitarianism Volume 1
    Keywords: Anthropologie, politische Sozio-ökonomischer Aspekt ; Lateinamerika
    Abstract: The left-wing Pink Tide movement that swept across Latin America seems now to be overturned, as a new wave of free-market thinkers emerge across the continent. This book analyses the emergence of corporate power within Latin America and the response of egalitarian movements across the continent trying to break open the constraints of the state. Through an ethnographically grounded and localized anthropological perspective, this book argues that at a time when the regular structures of political participation have been ruptured, the Latin American context reveals multiple expressions of egalitarian movements that strive (and sometimes momentarily manage) to break through the state's apparatus.
