New PDF release: Geschichte Südasiens: 1500 bis heute

Das capability 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.

The employers sought to protect their interests by setting up an association which it was believed would have the strength to stand up to the nationally organised trade unions. C. firms in an efficient way without interference from the unions.

The critical moment arrived with the moving of the eight-hour-day motion, which had become the symbol of the struggle for power in the Congress between the old Lib-Lab leadership which favoured voluntary agreement and the new radical socialists, who wanted legislation. The resolution was carried, but only by a small majority. However, the representative of the Stonemasons, Broadhurst's own union, had dramatically informed the delegates that he had been instructed to support a legally imposed eighthour maximum day.

Whose function was primarily political, was now lawful. There was a section of the unions that was not displeased with the Osborne decision since they wished to see support for the Labour Party brought to an end. When the issue was discussed at the annual Congress a resolution calling for legislation to reverse the Osborne decision was passed by an enormous majority. The Liberal Government was not in any hurry to rescue the Labour Party from its predicament, but the Government was anxious to retain Labour support after the election of 1910, since its huge majority had been wiped out and it was dependent on the Irish Nationalists and Labour Party members.
