Abstract

Die Analyse des internationalen Handels von Dienstleistungen weist Eigenarten auf, die dem Charakter der Dienstleistung geschuldet sind: Immateriell und nicht lagerfähig findet dennoch der internationale Austausch statt, wenn auch unter besonderen Bedingungen. Diese Arbeit untersucht den Handel von Bankdienstleistungen und die Rahmenbedingungen denen er unterworfen ist. Die Anforderungen an die Dienstleister und ihre Produkte sind länderspezifisch sehr unterschiedlich gestaltet. Als Indikator für protektionistische Beschränkungen wird die landeseigene Zinsmarge verwendet, die die Wettbewerbssituation reflektiert. Durch entsprechende Regressionsschätzungen werden die Protektionspotentiale und -mechanismen eines Landes ermittelt sowie die wesentlichen Protektionsfaktoren identifiziert. Im Rahmen internationaler Verhandlungen sollten diese Handelshemmnisse vorrangig reduziert werden, um möglichst große Wohlfahrtsgewinne für die beteiligten Länder zu generieren.

Abstract

The end of the 16th century saw Dutch expansion in Asia, as The Dutch East India Company (the VOC) was fast becoming an Asian power, both political and economic. By 1669, the VOC was the richest private company the world had ever seen. This landmark study looks at perhaps the most important tool in the Company' trading - its ships. In order to reconstruct the complete shipping activities of the VOC, the author created a unique database of the ships' movements, including frigates and other, hitherto ingored, smaller vessels. Parthesius's research into the routes and the types of ships in the service of the VOC proves that it was precisely the wide range of types and sizes of vessels that gave the Company the ability to sail - and continue its profitable trade - the year round. Furthermore, it appears that the VOC commanded at least twice the number of ships than earlier historians have ascertained. Combining the best of maritime and social history, this book will change our understanding of the commercial dynamics of the most successful economic organization of the period.

Abstract

The Habsburg crownland Galicia was one of the poorest region of the Habsburg Monarchy and could in the 19th century only rudimentarily catch up with industrialization and income growth of other regions. The book shows how over the long run the unequal transregional entanglements, in particular concerning commodity trade, alongside with the imperial economic policy restrained Galicia’s economic development between 1772 and 1914.

Abstract

Sugar, Steam and Steel is about cane sugar and the transformation of an Indonesian island into the ‘Oriental Cuba’ during the middle decades of the nineteenth century. Between the 1830s and the 1880s, sweetener manufacture in Dutch-controlled Java — the crown jewel of the erstwhile Netherlands Indies — drew decisively away in matters of technology and sugar science from other Asian centres of production which had once equaled or, more often, surpassed it in terms of both output and know-how. Along with its larger and altogether more famous Caribbean counterpart, Java’s industry came to occupy a position at the apex of the trade in what had become by this date a key global commodity.

Abstract

Empire Girls: the colonial heroine comes of age is a critical examination of three novels by writers from different regions of the British Empire: Olive Schreiner’s The Story of An African Farm (South Africa), Sara Jeannette Duncan’s A Daughter of Today (Canada) and Henry Handel Richardson’s The Getting of Wisdom (Australia). All three novels commence as conventional Bildungsromane, yet the plots of all diverge from the usual narrative structure, as a result of both their colonial origins and the clash between their aspirational heroines and the plots available to them. In an analysis including gender, empire, nation and race, Empire Girls provides new critical perspectives on the ways in which this dominant narrative form performs very differently when taken out of its metropolitan setting.
