Author: Silke Martini
Publisher: Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG
View: 8179Nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg suchen Indien und China ihren Platz in der Welt. Die Ideale und Strukturen internationaler Kooperation und Organisation, von denen diese Jahre weltpolitisch stark geprägt sind, bieten den Rahmen für verschiedene und zum Teil konkurrierende Entwürfe eines postimperialen Asien. In grenzübergreifenden Kommunikationskanälen politischer, gesellschaftlicher, wissenschaftlicher und journalistischer Natur bildet sich eine anglophone Weltöffentlichkeit heraus, in der die Zukunft Indiens und Chinas als unabhängige Nationalstaaten auf Augenhöhe mit den westlichen Mächten verhandelt wird. Diese transnational angelegte Ideengeschichte untersucht die politischen, wirtschaftlichen und kulturellen Modernisierungs- und Weltordnungskonzepte, die in dieser Zeit des Wandels für Indien und China formuliert wurden.

View: 6464This volume looks at the ways in which governance in the exercise of its strategies also acts as a process of production of subjects. It argues that governance is not a one-sided affair starting and ending with those who rule and govern, producing fiats, decrees, and diktats, but a productive process — one that produces subjects of governance who in turn respond to the process, and make the field of governance a contentious one. Against the backdrop of the first transition of democracy in India from its origin in a colonial polity to the first phase of its independent life after the promulgation of the Indian Constitution in 1950, this volume explores the second transition towards developmental democracy, examining the interrelations between globalisation, development and structures of governance. The volume suggests that while there is need to reflect on the governance of transition, it is important to question how democracy negotiates this transition.

Author: Chad M. Bauman
Publisher: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing
View: 7251When a form of Christianity from one corner of the world encounters the religion and culture of another, new and distinctive forms of the faith result. In this volume Chad Bauman considers one such cultural context -- colonial Chhattisgarh in north central India. In his study Bauman focuses on the interaction of three groups: Hindus from the low-caste Satnami community, Satnami converts to Christianity, and the American missionaries who worked with them. Informed by archival snooping and ethnographic fieldwork, the book reveals the emergence of a unique Satnami-Christian identity. As Bauman shows, preexisting structures of thought, belief, behavior, and more altered this emerging identity in significant ways, thereby creating a distinct regional Christianity.
Defending the Jewel in the Crown
Author: Winston S. Churchill
View: 8774In 1931, Britain's Conservative Party proposed the India Bill--a piece of proposed legislation that made significant changes to the way India governed itself under British rule. Winston Churchill, with a distinguished history of military service and war correspondence in India behind him, took a position on this bill independent of the party line--and fought for it with characteristic conviction and oratory brilliance. This book contains seven speeches and three important addresses on the subject, printed originally to generate popular support for Churchill's opinion. It should be noted that Churchill's opposition to Indian home rule is one of his more controversial political positions. Despite the strength of his oration, his attempt failed--and the India Bill was approved by Parliament in 1935. Documenting a rare loss for Churchill, these speeches provide an important insight into his mind and strategy as a political leader.

Reflections on India, the Emerging 21st-Century Power
Author: Shashi Tharoor
View: 4904Interest in India has never been greater. Here Shashi Tharoor, one of the subcontinent’s most respected writers and diplomats, offers precious insights into this complex, multifaceted land, which despite its dazzling diversity of languages, customs, and cultures remains—more than sixty years after its founding the world’s largest democracy. He describes the vast changes that have transformed this once sleeping giant into a world leader in science and technology, a nation once poverty-stricken that now boasts a middle class of over 300 million people—as large as the entire population of the United States. Artfully combining hard facts and statistics with opinion and observation, Tharoor discusses the strengths and weaknesses of his rapidly evolving homeland in five areas—politics, economics, culture, society, and sports—and takes a fresh look at the world’s oldest civilizations and most populous countries.
