Abstract

Cet ouvrage est le fruit d'une journée d'étude organisée aux Écoles de Saint-Cyr Coëtquidan le 15 décembre 2005, autour de la notion de frontière, vue dans ses aspects les plus variés. Séparation stricte ou voie de passage, la frontière reste le point de contact entre deux États, mais elle peut prendre l'aspect plus large et moins clairement défini d'un espace conçu comme base de rayonnement ou comme glacis protecteur. Les questions abordées s'inscrivent donc au cœur des relations diplomatiqu...

Abstract

Europe (in Theory) is an innovative analysis of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century ideas about Europe that continue to inform thinking about culture, politics, and identity today. Drawing on insights from subaltern and postcolonial studies, Roberto M. Dainotto deconstructs imperialism not from the so-called periphery but from within Europe itself. He proposes a genealogy of Eurocentrism that accounts for the way modern theories of Europe have marginalized the continent’s own southern region, portraying countries including Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal as irrational, corrupt, and clan-based in comparison to the rational, civic-minded nations of northern Europe. Dainotto argues that beginning with Montesquieu’s The Spirit of Laws (1748), Europe not only defined itself against an “Oriental” other but also against elements within its own borders: its South.

Abstract

Sind es Geschichte und Kultur, die Europa zur Einheit bestimmen? Zieht Europa in der globalen Standortkonkurrenz die alte Karte der "kulturellen Errungenschaft" universeller Werte? Was als Wirtschaftsunion gegründet wurde, wird heute zunehmend als Wertegemeinschaft definiert. Diese Suche nach einem europäischen Wesen entwickelt Züge einer "Identitätspolitik", die an nationalistische Inklusions- und Exklusionsdynamiken erinnert und anzuknüpfen erlaubt. Das neue Sinnbedürfnis überblendet nicht nur die Pluralität europäischer Erfahrungs- und Erinnerungs(ge)schichten, es zeugt zugleich von der als Druck wahrgenommenen Globalisierung. Mit Beiträgen von Michael Böhler, Michael Borgolte, Moritz Csáky, Johannes Feichtinger, Georg Kreis, Adolf Muschg, Sabine Offe, Johannes Pollak, Dragan Prole, Michael Rössner, Shingo Shimada und Moshe Zuckermann.

Abstract

Navigating Borders into the Netherlands provides a unique in-depth look at human smuggling processes. Based on biographical interviews with smuggled migrants in the Netherlands, the study reveals considerable differences that exist in smuggling's underlying causes, how journeys evolve, and outcomes of the process. This research from an insider's perspective clearly demonstrates that smuggled migrants are not passive actors, there is a broad variety in types of smugglers, and interactions between migrants and smugglers largely determine how the smuggling process evolves.

Abstract

This book interrogates the nature of anti-Americanism today and over the last century. It asks several questions: How do we define the phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, and cultural? What are the historical sources and turning points of anti-Americanism in Europe and elsewhere? What are its links with anti-Semitic sentiment? Has anti-Americanism been beneficial or self-destructive to its “believers”? Finally, how has the United States responded and why? The authors, ...

Abstract

World War I had just broken out, but colonial authorities in the Netherlands Indies heaved a sigh of relief: The colonial export sector had not collapsed and war offered new economic prospects; representatives from the Islamic nationalist movement had prayed for God to bless the Netherlands but had not seized upon the occasion to incite unrest. Furthermore, the colonial government, impressed by such shows of loyalty, embarked upon a campaign to create a ‘native militia’, an army of Javanese to assist in repulsing a possible Japanese invasion. - 

- Yet there were other problem: pilgrims stranded in Mecca, the pro-German disposition of most Indonesian Muslims because of the involvement of Turkey in the war, and above all the status of the Netherlands Indies as a smuggling station used by Indian revolutionaries and German agents to subvert British rule in Asia.

- 

- By 1917 the optimism of the first war years had disappeared. Trade restrictions, the war at sea, and a worldwide lack of tonnage caused export opportunities to dwindle. Communist propaganda had radicalized the nationalist movement. In 1918 it seemed that the colony might cave in. Exports had ceased. Famine was a very real danger. There was increasing unrest within the colonial population and the army and navy. Colonial authorities turned to the nationalist movement for help, offering them drastic political concessions, forgotten as soon as the war ended. The political and economic independence gained by the Netherlands Indies, a result of problems in communications with the mother country, was also lost with the end of the war.

- 

- Kees van Dijk examines how in 1917 the atmosphere of optimism in the Netherlands Indies changed to one of unrest and dissatisfaction, and how after World War I the situation stabilized to resemble pre-war political and economic circumstances.

- 

- Kees van Dijk (1946) has worked as a researcher at KITLV/Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies from 1968 to 2007 and has been professor of the history of Islam in Indonesia at Leiden University since 1985. Among his publications are Rebellion under the banner of Islam; The Darul Islam in Indonesia (Leiden, KITLV Press 1981) and A country in despair; Indonesia between 1997 and 2000 (Leiden, KITLV Press 2001).
