Abstract

COMMENSALITY - EATING AND DRINKING together in a common physical and social setting – is a central element in people’s everyday lives. This makes commensality a particularly important theme within which to explore social relations, social reproduction and the working of politics whether in the present or the past.Archaeological attention has been focused primarilyon feasting and other special commensal occasionsto the neglect of daily commensality. This volumeseeks to redress this imbalance by emphasizing thedynamic relation between feasts and quotidian mealsand devoting explicit attention to the micro-politics of Alltag (“the everyday”) rather than solely to special occasions. Case studies drawing on archaeological(material) as well as written sources range from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age in Western Asia and Greece, Formative to late pre-Columbian com munities in Andean South America, and modern Europe.

Abstract

L’expression « communauté internationale » est victime de son propre succès. Son caractère rassurant – qui évoque une conception harmonieuse du système international par la mise en valeur de ses forces unificatrices – en a fait l’instrument favori des savants qui enquêtent sur la logique interne de la société mondiale et de tous ceux qui cherchent, même en dehors des sciences sociales, à rallier l’opinion publique à une cause réclamée « universelle ». De nos jours, on fait souvent « appel à l...

Abstract

Why has the US so dramatically failed in Afghanistan since 2001? Dominant explanations have ignored the bureaucratic divisions and personality conflicts&#xD;inside the US state. This book rectifies this weakness in commentary on Afghanistan&#xD;by exploring the significant role of these divisions in the US’s difficulties&#xD;in the country that meant the battle was virtually lost before it even began. The&#xD;main objective of the book is to deepen readers’ understanding of the impact of&#xD;bureaucratic politics on nation-building in Afghanistan, focusing primarily on the&#xD;Bush administration. It rejects the ‘rational actor’ model, according to which the&#xD;US functions as a coherent, monolithic agent. Instead, internal divisions within&#xD;the foreign policy bureaucracy are explored, to build up a picture of the internal&#xD;tensions and contradictions that bedevilled US nation-building efforts. The book&#xD;also contributes to the vexed issue of whether or not the US should engage in&#xD;nation-building at all, and if so under what conditions.

Abstract

From the 18th century, Oceania became the principal laboratory of raciology for scholars, voyagers, and colonisers alike. By juxtaposing encounters and theory, this magisterial book explores the semantics of human difference in all its emotional, intellectual, religious, and practical dimensions. The argument developed is subtle, engrossing, and gives the paradigm of ‘race’ its full use value. Foreign Bodies is a model of analysis and erudition from which historians of science and everyone interested in intercultural relations will greatly profit.

Abstract

Humanity as never before shares a common destiny, whether it be in terms of the resources of the planet, the global environment, economic integration, or the movement of peoples, ideas, cultures. For better or worse humankind is a Community of Shared Destiny 命运共同体. The People’s Republic of China under the leadership of the Chinese Communist Party and its ‘Chairman of Everything’, Xi Jinping, has declared that it shares in the destiny of the countries of the Asia and Pacific region, as well as of nations that are part of an intertwined national self-interest. The Party, according to Marxist-Leninist-Maoist theory, is the vanguard of progressive social forces; it cleaves to the concept of shared destiny and its historical role in shaping that destiny. Since its early days nearly a century ago it has emphasised the collective over the individual, the end rather than the means. It addresses majority opinion while guiding and moulding the agenda both for today, and for the future.

Abstract

From modest beginnings in 1967, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has become the premier regional institution in Southeast Asia. The 10 members are pursuing cooperation to develop the ‘ASEAN Community’ and also sponsor wider dialogues that involve the major powers. Australia has been interested in ASEAN since its inauguration and was the first country to establish a multilateral link with the Association, in 1974. Australia and ASEAN have subsequently engaged and cooperated on many issues of mutual concern, including efforts to secure an agreement to resolve the Cambodia conflict (signed in 1991), the initiation of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation grouping (1989) and the ASEAN Regional Forum (1994), the conclusion of the ASEAN–Australia–New Zealand Free Trade Agreement (signed in 2008) and the development of the East Asia Summit (from 2005). This book provides the first available detailed history of the evolution of Australia’s interactions with ASEAN. It assesses the origins and phases of development of Australia’s relations with ASEAN; the role ASEAN has played in Australian foreign policy since the 1970s; the ways in which the two sides have collaborated, and at times disagreed, in the pursuit of regional stability and security; and the key factors that will influence the relationship as it moves into its fifth decade.

Abstract

Un cliché populaire veut que la profession de psychologue attire des gens qui veulent se comprendre eux-mêmes. Cependant, le fond de vérité de cette boutade révèle qu’en réalité les gens attirés par cette profession sont souvent des gens sensibles, intéressés par les relations humaines, ayant un profond désir d’aider les autres et de soulager les souffrances humaines.

Abstract

Depuis l’accession au pouvoir d’Hugo Chávez Frías en février 1999, la politique extérieure vénézuélienne se caractérise par un activisme certain et a octroyé au Venezuela une nouvelle visibilité sur la scène internationale. Si les relations houleuses avec les États-Unis de George W. Bush ou celles, souvent décriées, avec l’Iran de Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ont placé Caracas sous les feux de la rampe diplomatique, on ne saurait pour autant occulter d’autres facettes de cette politique, tout aussi sy...
