Abstract

Lange vor „IS“ und „Boko Haram“ galt die messianisch-christliche „Lord’s Resistance Army“ (LRA) in Uganda als die vielleicht brutalste Rebellengruppe Afrikas oder der Welt – und als eine, die sich sehr klar auf die Entführung, „Rekrutierung“ und den Einsatz Minderjähriger als KämpferInnen spezialisiert hat. Dieses Buch zeigt die Erkenntnisse eines Forschungsprojekts über ehemalige KindersoldatInnen in Norduganda und ihre „Reintegration“ in den gesellschaftlichen und familialen Alltag nach ihrer Rückkehr ins zivile Leben. Biographische Verläufe von Ex-KindersoldatInnen vor, während und nach der Zeit ihrer Entführung werden vorgestellt. Die AutorInnen untersuchen, wie sie ins zivile Leben zurückfanden, welche Beziehungsstrukturen oder sozialen Figurationen sich danach zwischen ihnen und den ZivilistInnen sowie insbesondere ihren Herkunftsfamilien beobachten lassen und welche alltagsweltlichen Bedingungen einen Übergang ins zivile Leben erleichtern oder erschweren.

Abstract

Brian Ferneyhouh est l'une des personnalités les plus importantes et les plus fascinantes de la musique actuelle ; c'est aussi l'une des plus difficiles à cerner. Ses œuvres, qui furent révélées vers la fin des années soixante, ne renoncent ni à une expressivité que l'on pourrait presque qualifier de romantique, ni à la complexité d'une élaboration rigoureuse. Elles se situent au-delà des problématiques des années cinquante et soixante, que Ferneyhough a su parfaitement intégrer, tout en s'opposant radicalement aux tendances restauratrices des années soixante-dix. Dans ce volume, Brian Ferneyhough retrace sa propre évolution, commentant chacune de ses œuvres, et s'explique sur leur signification profonde, notamment sur leurs déterminations et leurs implications extra-musicales ; il parle de sa manière de travailler, de la fonction de sa notation, du rôle des interprètes... et il analyse deux de ses œuvres. Différents auteurs posent sur sa musique un regard critique, musicographique, philosophique, ou analytique. Brian Ferneyhough est né à Coventry en 1943. Il y a fait ses études de musique, puis a suivi les cours de composition de Lennox Berkeley à Londres (1964-1967), Ton de Leeuw à Amsterdam (1 968-1 969) et Klaus Huber à Baie (1969). Il a enseigné la composition à Freiburg-im-Breisgau de 1 973 à 1986, ainsi qu'à Darmstadt (cours d'été depuis 1976) et Milan (depuis 1984) ; il a fait de nombreuses lectures, notamment à Helsinki, Glasgow, Arezzo et Dartington. Il travaille aujourd'hui à San Diego en Californie. Parmi ses oeuvres les plus importantes, on compte trois Quatuors à cordes, Transit, le cycle des Carceri d'invenzione, la pièce d'orchestre La Terre est un Homme, et la série des Time and Motion Studies.

Abstract

Saint Jérôme souffre parfois du voisinage trop éclatant de son illustre contemporain Augustin. Qu’il s’essaie dans le genre historique avec la Chronique et aussitôt s’élève le choeur des voix qui lui préfèrent l’ampleur et la portée théologique de la Cité de Dieu ! Mais une telle comparaison, qui ne tient compte ni des enjeux ni du contexte spécifiques de chaque œuvre, est forcément réductrice et conduit inévitablement à des classements arbitraires et spécieux. L’œuvre historique d’Augustin, ...

Abstract

Why did people in North India from the 5th century BC choose to leave the world and join the sect of the Buddha? This is the first book to apply the insights of social psychology in order to understand the religious motivation of the people who constituted the early Buddhist community. It also addresses the more general and theoretically controversial question of how world religions come into being, by focusing on the conversion process of the individual believer.

Abstract

The anthology contains 15 elaborate historical scientific portraits of Austrian historians written by 16 historians from Austria, Germany and the Czech Republic. It conceptually follows the first volume distributed in 2008 which contained 18 portraits most positively reviewed by 15 experts until today. The presented historians had been born in the Habsburg monarchy owning or receiving the Austrian nationality after 1918 and went through their decisive mode of activity between 1900 and 1945. There are two historians of art and one orientalist amongst them. In science or other fields they left traces so that the analysis of their biographies brought new scientific historical results. The chosen period of time enters the work of three generations of historians subdivided into the "generation of the youth of war", the "generation of the front lines" and the "precedent generation". At the same time corresponding with an also internationally observed period of the Austrian historical research verified by the following names of the portrayed historians such as Michael Tangl, Max Dvořák, Hugo Dantsch, Heinrich von Srbik oder Karl Lechner. The portrayed historians had been taken despite of their innovative or controversial historical field of work. The portraits cover the most important biographical data even exceeding it since the authors analyzed material from the archives in order to show socio biographical facts. The research work at the archives supports the request of memberships in scientific and political parties and activities in scholarship and research. In addition to that political views and activities and structures of scientific networking were able to be verified. That also shows that in certain student circles and networks above all by the University of Vienna and especially at the Institut für Österreichische Geschichtsforschung, a special Austrian (and also international) scientific component, existed. A central point is the scientific historical implementation of the oeuvre of the portrayed historians. It shows how the works are influenced by the authors impetus received from different sides and how they again effected other historians. The characteristic of time of the writings, their positions and dependence of the present at that time had been brought out clearly. The change of perspective or paradigm due to "external" influences such as the defeat of the war in 1918 or the "annexation" in 1938 is apparent looking at several portrayed historians as well as the sense of resistance by the others. To take up differently the political moment of the portrayed historians in their life and work had been a committed debate above all since the majority of the portrayed historians had taken their political views seriously. All in all the published edition offers a further critical, biographical oriented scientific historical (part of the) profile of the Austrian science of history from 1900-1945.

Abstract

Raymond Saleilles (Gigny-par-Beaune, Borgoña, 1855-París 1912) está considerado como uno de los máximos representantes de la Escuela antiformalista francesa, como uno de los profesores que reaccionaron a finales del siglo XIX contra el Absolutismo jurídico. Al autor se le presenta también como católico implicado en los problemas sociales de la época2, pero sin duda destaca en la literatura científica posterior a 1912 el papel de Saleilles como uno de los creadores del derecho comparado moderno. Pese a que no fue el único comparatista de su época ni tampoco el más prolífico ni el que estableciese un método elaborado de esta disciplina, los comparatistas posteriores a Saleilles le han considerado siempre como precursor de la comparatística en Francia, llegando a calificársele en ocasiones como “padre” del derecho comparado. Si duda esto se debe, al menos en parte, al importante papel de Raymond Saleilles en la organización del primer congreso internacional de derecho comparado, celebrado en París entre el 29 de julio y el 1 de agosto de 1900. Ciertamentehay un antes y un después de 1900 para la mayoría de comparatistas. El libro, en primer lugar, presenta una biografía del jurista que nos acerca a su contexto y a sus motivaciones científicas, políticas y religiosas. A continuación analiza el contexto de la aparición de este modernismo jurídico para desgranar después los diferentes elementos del método y objeto del derecho comparado saleilliano, ambos elaborados de manera vaga e imprecisa por el propio Saleilles. La última parte se dedico al análisis de la aplicación de esta doctrina a los diferentes temas que abordó el jurista francés.

The power of prophecy; Prince Dipanagara and the end of an old order in Java, 1785-1855

Abstract

National hero, Javanese mystic, pious Muslim and leader of the ‘holy war’ against the Dutch between 1825 and 1830, the Yogyakarta prince, Dipanagara (1785-1855, otherwise known as Diponegoro), is pre-eminent in the pantheon of modern Indonesian historical figures. Yet despite instant name recognition in Indonesia, there has never been a full biography of the prince’s life and times based on Dutch and Javanese sources. ‘The power of prophecy’ is a major study which sets Dipanagara’s life history against the context of the turbulent events of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century when the full force of European imperialism hit Indonesia like an Asian tsunami destroying forever Java’s ‘old order’ and propelling the twin forces of Islam and Javanese national identity into a fatal confrontation with the Dutch. This confrontation known as the Java War, in which Dipanagara was defeated and exiled, marked the beginning of the modern colonial period in Indonesia which lasted until the Japanese occupation of 1942-1945. The book presents a detailed analysis of Dipanagara’s pre-war visions and aspirations as a Javanese Ratu Adil (‘Just King’) based on extensive reading of his autobiography, the Babad Dipanagara as well as a number of other Javanese sources. Dutch and British records, in particularly the Residency Archives of Yogyakarta and Surakarta currently kept in the Indonesian National Archives, provide the backbone of this scholarly work. The book will be read with profit by all those interested in the rise of Western colonial rule in Indonesia, the fate of indigenous cultures in an age of imperialism and the role of Javanese Islam in modern Indonesian history. Peter Carey, Laithwaite tutor in History at Trinity College, Oxford, has made a lifetime study of Dipanagara and the history of early nineteenth century Java. His many works include the two-volume Archive of Yogyakarta (1980, 2000), The British in Java, 1811-1816; A Javanese account (1992) and Babad Dipanagara; An account of the outbreak of the Java War (1825-1830) (1981). He is one of Britain’s foremost historians of Southeast Asia and has also published on Cambodia, Burma and East Timor.
