Geschichte Südasiens: 1500 bis heute - download pdf or read online

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 quarter 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.

In the course of I9I I a new challenge to the Labour Party appeared among its own affiliated organisations.

One highly controversial issue was the dilution of labour in the factories - that is, the admission of unskilled workers into occupations hitherto reserved for craftsmen who had served their apprenticeship. Another was military conscription, which was strongly opposed by most sections of the labour movement. Members of the government soon began to realise that the participation of Henderson and his colleagues in office did not guarantee the loyalty of all the workers in the factories and mines.
