The Palgrave Handbook of Critical International Political Economy
Challenging the assumptions of `mainstream' International Political Economy (IPE), this Handbook demonstrates the considerable value of critical theory to the discipline through a series of cutting-edge studies. The field of IPE has always had an inbuilt vocation within Historical Materialism, with an explicit ambition to make sense, from a critical standpoint, of the capitalist mode of production as a world system of sometimes paradoxically and sometimes smoothly overlapping states and markets. Having spearheaded the growth of a vigorous critical scholarship in the 1960s and 1970s, however, Marxism and neo-Gramscian approaches became increasingly marginalized over the course of the 1980s. The authors respond to the exposure of limits to mainstream contemporary scholarship in the wake of the onset of the Global Financial Crisis, and provide a comprehensive overview of the field of Critical International Political Economy. Problematizing socioeconomic and political structures, and considering these as potentially transitory and subject to change, the contributors aim not simply to understand a world of conflict, but furthermore to uncover the ways in which purportedly objective analyses reflect the interests of those in positions of privilege and power.

Kultur des Eigentums, als dritter Band der Reihe Bibliothek des Eigentums strebt an, in vielen Variationen uber das Grundthema Eigentum nachzudenken, sein Versprechen und seine Gefahrdungen. Denn die Kultur des Eigentums hat vielerlei Auspragungen, von den altesten wie Grund und Boden bis zu den neuesten wie Patentwesen und Copyright. Nichts davon ist abschliessend gesichert, sondern muss Tag fur Tag vertreten werden, gerechtfertigt und verteidigt. Dieses Buch beleuchtet in der Perspektive des Eigentums die geistesgeschichtliche Lage der Gegenwart und leitet den Blick auf die Zukunft. Nicht zufallig ist der Anlass der Entstehung dieses Bandes: Der 75. Geburtstag der Bausparkasse Schwabisch Hall im Mai 2006 eine Institution die eben ein Dreivierteljahrhundert fur Eigentumsbildung und Eigentumskultur uber Deutschland hinaus steht.

Economy and Environment in the Caribbean: Barbados and the Windwards in the Late 1800s
In this historical geography of the British colonies of Barbados and the Windwards (St. Lucia, St. Vincent, and Grenada), Bonham C. Richardson describes the economies, environments, and societies of the four geographically dissimilar islands and outlines the severe economic depression they experienced following the 1884 plunge in London sugar prices and the exacerbating effects of two catastrophes, a massive hurricane in 1898 and a volcanic eruption in 1902. In a novel approach, Richardson emphasizes the effects of the islands' physical environments and devotes chapters to climate, waters, lowlands, and highlands. He also demonstrates how these environmental zones and resources were contested by different socioeconomic groups, leading him to one of his most provocative arguments: that depression-induced demonstrations and riots in the islands in the late 1890s in large part precipitated the Royal Commission's wise decision to advocate the break-up of sugarcane plantations into smaller shareholds. Thus, Richardson demonstrates the ways in which working people, far from being victims of colonialism, managed to influence British decision makers so that each island developed a unique adaptation to the economic and geophysical stresses placed on it, proving fruitless the British attempts to regionalize the islands under a single policy. Throughout, Richardson's discussion of insularity and islandness is important to understanding problems in the Caribbean today, a century later, and will be of interest to geographers and historians of the Caribbean and to anyone with an interest in small-island economics.

Individ Dignty Mod Jap Thougt CB: The Evolution of the Concept of Jinkaku in Moral and Educational Discourse / Kyoko Inoue.
The American draft of the Japanese Constitution included an article expressing that each individual was entitled to respect simply by virtue of being a human being. The Japanese, however, interpreted this concept as respect for jinkaku (moral character). Jinkaku was a strongly elitist concept that gradually acquired more egalitarian meanings during the Taisho period. Yet the hierarchical connotations were still present when the term was used to interpret individual dignity in the Constitution and was later made the foundation of postwar Japanese education. As Japanese discourse began to embrace the American idea that all people are worthy of respect just because they are human beings, and thus their fundamental rights must be protected, it did not adopt the American emphasis on protecting individual rights against the government. Consonant with the ideas embodied in the Constitution, the Japanese teach that government and the people are jointly responsible for bringing about a fair and just society for all. Textbooks thus promote a communitarian rather than individualistic view of democracy.Individual Dignity in Modern Japanese Thought is important for scholars of modern Japanese intellectual history and Japanese democracy, for political scientists interested in political socialization, and for scholars of comparative history, law, politics, and education.

A Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings IV: Self-Portraits
Volume IV of A Corpus of Rembrandt Paintings deals uniquely with the self-portraits of Rembrandt. In a clearly written explanatory style the head of the Rembrandt Research Project and Editor of this Volume, Ernst van de Wetering, discusses the full body of work of paintings and etchings portraying Rembrandt. He sets the different parameters for accepting or rejecting a Rembrandt self-portrait as such, whilst also discussing the exact working environment of Rembrandt and his apprentices. This workshop setting created a surroundings where apprentices could be involved in working on Rembrandt paintings making it more difficult to determine the hand of the master. Van de Wetering, who is one of the Rembrandt experts of our day and age, goes down to great detail to explain how the different self-portraits are made and what techniques Rembrandt uses, also giving an overview of which paintings are to be attributed to the Dutch Master and which not. In the additional catalogue the self-portraits are examined in detail. In clear and accessible explanatory text the different paintings are discussed, larded with immaculate images of each painting. Details are shown where possible, as well as the results of modern day technical imaging like X-radiography. This work of art history and art research should be part of every serious art historical institute, university or museum. Nowhere in the art history have all Rembrandt's self portraits been discussed in such detailed and comparative manner by an authority such as Ernst van de Wetering. This is a standard work for decades to come.

Ideas in Action: Political Tradition in the Twentieth Century
Imagine a world in which means and ends, theory and practice, ideals, values, and interests, are torturously disassociated and yet manifestly linked. That is the world of the 20th century as Stephen Eric Bronner vividly portrays it in his important new work. Now imagine a world in which new traditions mix with the old, creativity blends with commitment, and values from the past combine with bold visions of the future. Creating this new fusion, says Professor Bronner, is the challenge for the 21st century and it inspires Ideas in Action. Contemporary political theory has become alienated from politics. It often neither discusses concrete political events nor touches the world of political action. That is an intellectual luxury the academy of the 21st century can ill-afford, and Ideas in Action offers an accessible way out of the box into which the canon of political theory and philosophy has been stuffed. With elegance and power, Bronner surveys 20th century political traditions. In the process, he places theories and thinkers in their social, historical, and political contexts. His sweeping presentation is organized into four imaginatively articulated phases that signal the direction of political thinking in the twentieth century. Offering distinctive interpretations and criticisms, presenting a new internationalist perspective, Bronner imbues the text with original voices and primary sources from the very canon he is reconfiguring. Careful notes of citation and explanation provide a pedagogical subtext that serves as a running bibliographic essay. All this and more makes

Uncertain Transition: Ethnographies of Change in the Postsocialist World
The ethnographies collected here offer a surprising and compelling picture of change in Russia and Eastern Europe found in no other book to date. Looking at the everyday processes by which individuals and groups forge new lives, the authors challenge the idea that we can understand this transformation by the predictable models_whether capitalism, post-socialism, modernity, or postmodernity. The collection brings together a wide-ranging group of authors from sociology, anthropology, and political science to reveal the complex relationships that still exist between the former socialist world and the world today. Through evocative ethnographic research and writing, they bring to light the unintended consequences of change and show how the 'slates' of the past enter the present not as legacies_but as novel adaptations. Often what appear as 'restorations' of patterns familiar from socialism are something quite different: direct responses to the new market initiatives. By showing the unexpected ways in which these new patterns are emerging, this book charts a new and important course for the study of post-socialist transition.

Leonhard Euler: Ein Mann, MIT Dem Man Rechnen Kann
In seinem Kopf stellte er die mathematische Welt auf den Kopf. Er berechnete Fl ssigkeitsstr mungen, das Tr gheitsmoment, entwickelte die Variationsrechnung und die moderne Zahlentheorie. Als Wissenschaftler steht er auf einer Stufe mit Newton und Einstein. Konstrukteure in aller Welt arbeiten tagt glich mit seinen Formeln - egal ob es um den Schiffsrumpf der Alinghi geht oder um die Schwingungen des Viaduc de Millau, der Welt h chster Autobahnbr cke. Dabei war er ein Mensch, der b rgerliche Behaglichkeit und Ruhe liebte. Nicht ganz einfach zur Gr ndungszeit von St. Petersburg inmitten russischer Kaisermorde oder im Berlin zur Zeit der schlesischen Kriege. Und erst recht nicht inmitten einer grossen Kinderschar. Der Comic von Elena Pini (Graphik) und Alice und Andreas K. Heyne (Text) zeichnet das Leben des genialen Baslers nach, der vor 300 Jahren geboren wurde, mit zwanzig Jahren seine Heimatstadt verliess - und nie wieder zur ckkehrte.
