Download e-book for iPad: Geschichte Südasiens: 1500 bis heute by Michael Mann

Das power und die Wirtschaftskraft Südasiens und Indiens rücken immer deutlicher in das europäische Bewusstsein. Welche vielgestaltige Geschichte dieser Großraum hat und wie es zu den heutigen Staaten gekommen ist, führt der Band von Michael Mann eindrücklich vor.

Geographisch geht es nicht um eine Geschichte Indiens in seinen heutigen Grenzen, sondern um eine des gesamten Subkontinents, von Pakistan und Nepal über Indien bis Sri Lanka und den Malediven. Inhaltlich behandelt der Band die Geschichte der zone nicht nur punktuell dort, wo Europäer mit ihr in Berührung kommen (Kaufleute, Ostindienkompanien, Kolonisatoren), sondern begreift sie als eigenständige, hoch spannende Geschichte einer Großregion. Die Darstellung beginnt mit dem Entstehen des islamischen Großreiches der Moguln und endet in der Gegenwart. Die religiösen wie politischen Spannungen der zone bis heute werden ebenso behandelt wie der jüngere rasante Aufstieg Indiens als Wirtschaftsmacht.
