New PDF release: Geschichte Südasiens: 1500 bis heute

Das strength 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 sector 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.

Example text

Industrial versus environmental battles have proliferated at the state and local level, in part because of NIMBYism ("Not in my backyardism") - the attitude and often actions of those who believe that they have a right to a healthy, safe, and valuable home and neighborhood. NIMBYism is shared by people across the political spectrum, including many of those tireless defenders of private property who would otherwise shrug at a dam across the Grand Canyon. To protect their quality of life, NIMBYists attend local hearings, negotiate with representatives of offending interests in "environmental dispute resolutions" (EDRs), and sue.

Congress acted on the Commission's recommendations by passing the 1913 Federal Reserve Act which established a Federal Reserve Board in Washington, designated 12 regional affiliated banks, and created the Federal Open Market Committee which sells and buys government securities. When an opening on the seven-member Board arises, the president appoints a successor and can designate a chair, both subject to senate approval. Although the Federal Reserve theoretically has had full monetary power since its inception in 1913, until 1935 it largely presided over the independent policies of the twelve regional banks and the Treasury Department's borrowing needs.

A classic iron triangle is the "military-industrial complex" among the allied Pentagon, military industries, and politicians, whose districts or states have military bases or factories; the military-industrial complex is politically invincible nearly all the time. The result is the proliferation of weapons systems, bases, and perks for the military that annually cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars and often have little or no strategic rationale. Regardless of whether an iron triangle dominates the issue or not, every industrial policy is fought over and shaped by dozens of Congressional committees and subcommittees, special interest groups, bureaucratic rivalries and inertia, perennial reelection campaigns, budget limitations, popular apathy and ignorance that sometimes flares into passion, porkbarrel politics, financial contributions, For Better or for Worse: Policymaking 35 disinformation, direct mailing campaigns, and demagogery.
