Northern Neighbours Excerpt :

How did the development of two small countries at the north of Europe, whose histories were joined from about the year 795 AD -- including a 300-year alliance -- nevertheless diverge sharply in the modern era? This edited collection of essays covers various elements of this analysis including land ownership, politics, agriculture, industry, money and banking, local government, education, religion, access and the outdoor life, as well as several more synthetic chapters. Written as it is by historians, political scientists, economists, sociologists, anthropologists and human geographers, the book moves beyond historical narrative, and outlines elements of a theory of divergent development between Norway and Scotland over the long term, and so towards a novel history which will be of interest to a wider audience.

Linking India and Eastern Neighbours Excerpt :

Linking India and Eastern Neighbours: Development in the Northeast and Borderlands studies different aspects of India’s bilateral relations with neighbouring countries and discusses implications of development initiatives in India’s northeastern region (NER) and its borderlands. The NER shares borders with five countries. The central government has shown interest in developing infrastructure in the NER, and state governments are taking initiatives to promote trade relations with the bordering countries. The book discusses the causes for underdevelopment and examines the initiatives taken to overcome the problems of the land-locked region. It provides a comprehensive account of varied processes at work in India’s northeastern borderlands. The book looks closely at the lifeworld of the border communities and myriad cross-border interactions. It throws light on the economic potentiality and preparedness of the NER, the significance of border haats, diverse manifestatsions of border crossing and nature of inter-ethnic interactions. The book also explains the theoretical significance and practical relevance of studying border processes.

Visiting the Neighbours Excerpt :

A million Australians went to Bali last year, following the millions of others who have made their way across Asia over the past century. Many travellers returned thinking they knew Asia and their personal experiences helped shape popular attitudes. This absorbing book unpacks their experiences, showing how their encounters changed the way Australians thought about themselves in the world.Visiting the Neighbours tells the story of Australian relations with Asia from the bottom up, examining the experiences of some of the millions of travellers and tourists who headed to the region over more than a hundred years. Merchants, missionaries, pilgrims, soldiers, hippies, diplomats, backpackers all had an impact on diplomacy and international relations. Agnieszka Sobocinska’s book is a bold and important step in understanding the intersection between popular opinion, prejudice and international relations as Australia stands at the precipice of the Asian Century.‘Sets out a range of fascinating and different roles played by Australians in Asia.’ – Michael Wesley, author of There Goes the Neighbourhood: Australia and the rise of Asia.‘ … Puts travel to Asia firmly on the 'Asia-literacy' map. This is not only a richly detailed, subtly argued and historically informed study of the Australian traveller in Asia. It is also smart, sharp and a very good read.’ – David Walker, BHP Billiton Chair of Australian Studies, Peking University.

Cultures of Law in Urban Northern Europe Excerpt :

Drawing together an international team of historians, lawyers and historical sociolinguists, this volume investigates urban cultures of law in Scotland, with a special focus on Aberdeen and its rich civic archive, the Low Countries, Norway, Germany and Poland from c. 1350 to c. 1650. In these essays, the contributors seek to understand how law works in its cultural and social contexts by focusing specifically on the urban experience and, to a great extent, on urban records. The contributions are concerned with understanding late medieval and early modern legal experts as well as the users of courts and legal services, the languages and records of law, and legal activities occurring inside and outside of official legal fora. This volume considers what the expectations of people at different status levels were for the use of the law, what perceptions of justice and authority existed among different groups, and what their knowledge was of law and legal procedure. By examining how different aspects of legal culture came to be recorded in writing, the contributors reveal how that writing itself then became part of a culture of law. Cultures of Law in Urban Northern Europe: Scotland and its Neighbours c.1350–c.1650 combines the historical study of law, towns, language and politics in a way that will be accessible and compelling for advanced level undergraduates and postgraduate to postdoctoral researchers and academics in medieval and early modern, urban, legal, political and linguistic history.
