Peer Review Procedure Amsterdam University Press after July 2009

A manuscript that qualifies for publication by AUP, is forwarded by the publisher to two members of the appropriate editorial staff council. These two members are requested to suggest each two names of external peer reviewers. We then approach these external peer reviewers to write a peer review following the ‘AUP Review Form’.

If the first two reviews share the same opinion, this opinion will be presented for agreement to the editorial staff council by email. If AUP receives only one review, with either a positive of a negative advice, or if the reviewers have different opinions, the manuscript will be scheduled for the next meeting of the editorial staff council where will be decided whether to publish the book. If the author is asked to revise his/her manuscript, the final manuscript goes back to one of the two ‘first readers’ for approval.

Peer Review Procedure Amsterdam University Press before July 2009

A manuscript that qualifies for publication by AUP, is forwarded by the publisher to all members of the appropriate editorial staff council. Two members (first readers) are requested to look at the manuscript thoroughly. In the next meeting of this editorial staff council, the manuscript is discussed and the council advises the publisher whether AUP should publish the book. If the author is asked to revise his/her manuscript, the final manuscript goes back to one of the two ‘first readers’ for approval. If the council doesn’t deem itself appropriate to review the manuscript, it is sent out to at least one external peer reviewer, and that (written) peer-review is discussed in the next meeting of the council, after which the council advises the publisher on acceptation of the manuscript.

Abstract

Indische Nederlanders zijn de grootste immigrantengroep die zich ooit in Nederland heeft gevestigd. Er is niet veel over hen bekend en al helemaal niet over hun nazaten. Voelen die zich eigenlijk nog Indisch? In ‘Indisch is een gevoel’ vertellen de volwassen kinderen en kleinkinderen van de Indische immigranten, de tweede en derde generatie, over hun leven. Ze gaan vooral in op wat ze van huis uit aan Indische bagage hebben meegekregen en wat Indisch-zijn voor hen betekent. Het boek bevat veel inzichtgevende citaten uit hun openhartige verhalen én een fotokatern in kleur door Fanny van der Linden.

Abstract

This book challenges every common presumption that exists about the trafficking of women for the sex trade. It is a detailed account of an entire population of trafficked Albanian women whose varied experiences, including selling sex on the streets of France, clearly demonstrate how much the present discourse about trafficked women is misplaced and inadequate. The heterogeneity of the women involved and their relationships with various men is clearly presented as is the way women actively created a panoptical surveillance of themselves as a means of self-policing. There is no artificial divide between women who were deceived and abused and those who "choose" sex work; in fact the book clearly shows how peripheral involvement in sex work was to the real agenda of the women involved. Most of the women described in this book were not making economic decisions to escape desperate poverty nor were they the uneducated naïve entrapped into sexual slavery. The women's success in transiting trafficking to achieve their own goals without the assistance of any outside agency is a testimony to their resilience and resolve.

Abstract

Also available in English "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789089643285">Attached to the World Few other countries are so interrelated with the world around us in political, economic, and social respects as the Netherlands. This means that the Dutch government needs to be alert in its response to the risks and opportunities presented by a rapidly changing world. Addressing this issue, the Scientific Council for Government Policy (wrr) offers some reflections in this report, guided by the question how the Netherlands can develop a foreign policy strategy that matches the changing power relations in the world and the radically changed character of international relations. The answer to this question is a reorientation. This means making transparent choices, making smarter use of Europe as our dominant arena, and, finally, choosing an approach that makes better use of the growing role of non-state actors. The report's recommendations not only underline the necessity of reorientation but also show how this could be accomplished in practice.

Abstract

Nationality and citizenship have been subjects of stormy policy debates in many EU countries in recent years. Concerns over the integration of immigrants, but also attempts to forge links with emigrants, have led to changes in the laws regulating loss and acquisition of nationality and citizenship. This title outlines the research conducted by a team of 30 researchers into the nationality laws and their implementation in 15 EU member states. Acquisition and Loss of Nationality - Volume 1 presents the results of a systematic comparative analysis. It uses a novel methodology that permits a detailed comparison how nationality can be acquired or lost across all 15 countries. The results show divergent trends towards liberalization in some countries and new restrictions of access to nationality in others. The book examines the impact of international and European law, presents statistical data on naturalization and assesses administrative practices. Although the European Union has no formal competence in regulating nationality, the nationality laws of member states are linked to each other via the common citizenship of the Union. Member States should therefore agree on common norms for their nationality laws. The book contains detailed policy recommendations based on the idea that stakeholders in the political community should be given access to nationality. Studies of each country's nationality law are published separately in "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789053569214"> Volume 2. Additional material including detailed statistics and further comparative analyses of legal regulations of nationality is available at "http://www.imiscoe.org">www.imiscoe.org. Volume 1 & 2 are also available as a set, "http://www.aup.nl/do.php?a=show_visitor_book&isbn=9789053569498&l=2">click here for more information. This is the most comprehensive comparative study of the legal status of nationality so far and it will become an indispensable source of reference for further research.

Abstract

Sociale zekerheid dient de bestaanszekerheid te garanderen. Maar bestaanszekerheid is een steeds groter begrip geworden, dat ook te maken heeft met vraagstukken van identiteit en veiligheid. Door grote migratiebewegingen veranderde in relatief korte tijd, vooral in de grote steden, de samenstelling van de bevolking. Daarnaast werd veiligheid een steeds groter thema, enerzijds door de reële toename van de problemen, anderzijds door een groeiend maatschappelijk onbehagen. De zekerheid van het bestaan is niet alleen een materiële kwestie, maar heeft steeds meer te maken met het wegvallen van (veronderstelde) vanzelfsprekendheden. Daarbij is de afstand tussen publieke sector en burgers gegroeid. Het komt erop aan de zekerheid weer meer rond burgers te organiseren. De vervreemdende werking van de instituties zal moeten worden omgezet in nieuwe arrangementen van kleine zekerheden.

Abstract

Television as we knew it is irrevocably changing. Some are gleefully announcing the death of television, others have been less sanguine but insist that television is radically changing underneath our eyes. Several excellent publications have dealt with television's uncertain condition, but few have taken the specific question of what television's transformations mean for the discipline of Television Studies as a starting point. The essays collected in this volume aim to fill this void. Two fundamental questions string the various contributions together. First, is television really in crisis or is the present not so extraordinary when revisiting television's development? Second, should we invent new theoretical concepts or are our old ones still perfectly relevant? To answer such questions the authors in this volume take up diverse case studies, ranging from the academic series Reading Contemporary Television to Flemish Fiction, from nostalgic programming on broadcast television to YouTube, from tell-sell television shows to public television art in the 1980s.

Abstract

Aftershocks was written in the midst of the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression. Although it would be premature to presume to identify the repercussions of the crisis, it is clear that it will have profound aftershock effects in the political, economic, and social spheres. The book contains essays based on semi-structured interviews with leading scholars, European politicians and representatives from the world of business. They reflect on the origins of the crisis as well as the possible social, economic, and political transformations it may engender.

Abstract

In 2003-2006, Patricia Henderson lived in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal where she recorded the experiences of people living with HIV/AIDS. In this illuminating study, she recounts the concerns of rural people and explores local repertoires through which illness was folded into everyday life. The book spans a period when antiretroviral medication was not available, and moves on to a time when the treatment became accessible. Hope gradually became manifest in the recovery of a number of people through antiretroviral therapies and 'the return' of bodies they could recognise as their own. This research implies that protracted interaction with people over time, offers insights into the unfolding textures of everyday life, in particular in its focus on suffering, social and structural inequality, illness, violence, mourning, sensibility, care and intimacy.
