Abstract

Wurden die Grundeinstellungen europäischer Bürger bisher fast exklusiv durch quantitative Methoden beobachtet und erklärt, so geht die in diesem Buch vorgestellte international vergleichende Studie einen anderen Weg: Das Ziel der von 2006 bis 2009 durchgeführten Erhebungen war es, genauere qualitative Untersuchungstechniken einzusetzen, um so die Komplexität und Vielfalt der Wahrnehmungen und Reaktionen der "Normalbürger" besser wiederzugeben. Ein wichtiger Beitrag zur Vielfalt der Einstellungen zu Europa und zur Erklärung der allgemeinen Distanz der meisten Bürger in Bezug auf die EU.(aus dem Französischen von Frank Weigand und Markus Merz)

Abstract

“This collection of the writings and speeches of one of Fiji’s greatest statesmen, the late Mr AD Patel, points to a different future which, if allowed to come to fruition, would have spared Fiji the fate it later encountered in its postcolonial journey. As a leader, Mr Patel was unmatchable in intellect and oratorical brilliance, glimpses of which we see in this volume. Dr Lal deserves to be congratulated for his patience and perseverance in completing this project. This book will find an honoured place among others on Fiji’s complex and contested modern history.”

Abstract

“Dr Lal’s book is more than an eloquent account of the political struggle of one of Fiji’s outstanding leaders. It is a timely reminder that the process of constitutional change hangs in the balance, as it did at the time of Mr Patel’s death. I hope his example will inspire future generations in Fiji to realise the vision articulated by a brilliant and courageous advocate of democracy, and a loyal son of Fiji.” Late Adi Kuini Bavadra

Abstract

Burkas in Frankreich, Moscheebau in Köln, Minarette in der Schweiz - der öffentliche Diskurs über die Integration von Muslimen in Deutschland und Europa ist geprägt vom Konflikt zwischen Religionsfreiheit und der westlichen Trennung von Religion und Politik. Doch wie neutral muss der Staat hier eigentlich sein? Wie können die Errungenschaften der Aufklärung verteidigt werden, ohne dass das Recht auf Religionsausübung verletzt wird? Und welchen Stellenwert hat Religion in den modernen westlichen Gesellschaften noch? Diesen und weiteren Fragen gehen die Beiträge in diesem Band nach. Expertinnen und Experten aus den Bereichen der Islamwissenschaft, Politikwissenschaft, Rechtswissenschaft und Migrationsforschung beleuchten das Verhältnis von Staatlichkeit und Religion.

Abstract

Recent years have shown an increase in interest in the study of cleanliness from a historical and sociological perspective. Many of such studies on bathing and washing, on keeping the body and the streets clean, and on filth and the combat of dirt, focus on Europe. In Cleanliness and culture attention shifts to the tropics, to Indonesia, in colonial times as well as in the present. Subjects range from the use of soap and the washing of clothes as a pretext to claim superiority of race and class to how references to being clean played a role in a campaign against European homosexuals in the Netherlands Indies at the end of the 1930s. Other topics are eerie skin diseases and the sanitary measures to eliminate them, and how misconceptions about lack of hygiene as the cause of illness hampered the finding&#xD;of a cure. Attention is also drawn to differences in attitude towards performing personal body functions outdoors and retreating to the privacy of the bathroom, to traditional bathing ritual and to the modern tropical Spa culture as a manifestation of a New Asian lifestyle.&#xD;With contributions by Bart Barendregt, Marieke Bloembergen, Kees van Dijk, Mary Somers Heidhues, David Henley, George Quinn, and Jean Gelman Taylor.

Abstract

This volume brings together new scholarship by Indonesian and non-Indonesian scholars on Indonesia’s cultural history from 1950-1965. During the new nation’s first decade and a half, Indonesia’s links with the world and its sense of nationhood were vigorously negotiated on the cultural front. Indonesia used cultural networks of the time, including those of the Cold War, to announce itself on the world stage. International links, post-colonial aspirations and nationalistic fervour interacted to produce a thriving cultural and intellectual life at home. Essays discuss the exchange of artists, intellectuals, writing and ideas between Indonesia and various countries; the development of cultural networks; and ways these networks interacted with and influenced cultural expression and discourse in Indonesia. With contributions by Keith Foulcher, Liesbeth Dolk, Hairus Salim HS, Tony Day, Budiawan, Maya H.T. Liem, Jennifer Lindsay, Els Bogaerts, Melani Budianta, Choirotun Chisaan, I Nyoman Darma Putra, Barbara Hatley, Marije Plomp, Irawati Durban Ardjo, Rhoma Dwi Aria Yuliantri and Michael Bodden.&#xD;From the reviews: ‘This book will become a founding publication of research on the cultural and social history of Soekarno’s Old Order. It will stimulate new research [...] and begins to fill in the gaps that have existed for the past half a century’, Laurie Sears. ‘[...] reveals the highly charged debates and conflicts over artistic practice in the newly independent Indonesian state during the Soekarno era in their infinite complexities’, Frances Gouda.

Abstract

Healers on the colonial market is one of the few studies on the Dutch East Indies from a postcolonial perspective. It provides an&#xD;enthralling addition to research on both the history of the Dutch&#xD;East Indies and the history of colonial medicine. This book will be&#xD;of interest to historians, historians of science and medicine, and&#xD;anthropologists.&#xD;&#xD;How successful were the two medical training programmes&#xD;established in Jakarta by the colonial government in 1851? One&#xD;was a medical school for Javanese boys, and the other a school&#xD;for midwives for Javanese girls, and the graduates were supposed&#xD;to replace native healers, the dukun. However, the indigenous&#xD;population was not prepared to use the services of these doctors and&#xD;midwives. Native doctors did in fact prove useful as vaccinators&#xD;and assistant doctors, but the school for midwives was closed in&#xD;1875. Even though there were many horror stories of mistakes made&#xD;during dukun-assisted deliveries, the school was not reopened, and&#xD;instead a handful of girls received practical training from European&#xD;physicians. Under the Ethical Policy there was more attention for&#xD;the welfare of the indigenous population and the need for doctors&#xD;increased. More native boys received medical training and went to&#xD;work as general practitioners. Nevertheless, not everybody accepted&#xD;these native doctors as the colleagues of European physicians.&#xD;&#xD;Liesbeth Hesselink (1943) received a PhD in the history of medicine&#xD;from the University of Amsterdam in 2009. She has had a career in&#xD;education and in politics. In addition she has published articles on&#xD;prostitution and the medical history of the Dutch East Indies.

Abstract

In the early decades of the 19th century, Indigenous Australians suffered devastating losses at the hands of British colonists, who largely ignored their sovereignty and even their humanity. At the same time, however, a new wave of Christian humanitarians were arriving in the colonies, troubled by Aboriginal suffering and arguing that colonists had obligations towards the people they had dispossessed. These white philanthropists raised questions which have shaped Australian society ever since. Did Indigenous Australians have rights to land, rationing, education and cultural survival? If so, how should these be guaranteed, and what would people have to give up in return? Would charity and paternalism lead to effective government or dismal failure – to a powerful defence of an oppressed people, or to new forms of oppression?&#xD;&#xD;In Good Faith? paints a vivid picture of life on Australia’s first missions and protectorate stations, examining the tensions between charity and rights, empathy and imperialism, as well as the intimacy, dependence, resentment and obligations that developed between missionary philanthropists and the people they tried to protect and control. In this work, Mitchell brings to life hitherto neglected moments in Australia’s history, and traces the origins of dilemmas still present today.
