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 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 sector bis heute werden ebenso behandelt wie der jüngere rasante Aufstieg Indiens als Wirtschaftsmacht.

Sample text

In his mind he travelled ahead of his tracks in the bush, and was able to see his future prey. In his dream he would kill the animal and then, the next day, he knew just where his path would cross that of his prey, and he would easily track it and kill it. Such a dream kill did not necessarily happen at every hunt, nor could all hunters dream in this way. However, dreams were an important experience for all Dunne-za people. The songs that were discovered through dreaming were performed at gatherings, such as the summer meetings when several hundred people would come together.

Within this territory were a variety of resource sites: halibut fishing grounds, salmon rivers, berry grounds, clam beds, and hunting and trapping areas. The Mamalilikulla tribe was made up of eight different numaym. The Kwakwaka’wakw seasonal round had three major periods. First was the winter ceremonial season. About the end of November, members of a tribe’s numaym gathered together in the tribal winter village. For the Mamalilikulla, this was on Village Island. Great cedar longhouses with painted house fronts and totems standing before them displayed the crests of the chiefs of each numaym.

Making Tools and Household Goods Winter offered an opportunity to replenish the tools that would be needed for the coming year. Usually everybody knew how to make the tools they would require, and men and women were responsible for making the implements they used. In some cases experts might be called upon to make very sophisticated items. Nothing was wasted: people made use of practically every part of the resources they harvested. For example, when a moose was killed, those parts that were not used for food could be used in other ways.
