Between colonialism and diaspora : Sikh cultural formations in an imperial world by Tony Ballantyne( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bringing South Asian and British imperial history together with recent scholarship on transnationalism and postcolonialism, Tony Ballantyne offers a bold reevaluation of constructions of Sikh identity from the late eighteenth century through the early twenty-first. Ballantyne considers Sikh communities and experiences in Punjab, the rest of South Asia, the United Kingdom, and other parts of the world. He charts the shifting, complex, and frequently competing visions of Sikh identity that have been produced in response to the momentous social changes wrought by colonialism and diaspora. In the process, he argues that Sikh studies must expand its scope to take into account not only how Sikhism is figured in religious and political texts but also on the battlefields of Asia and Europe, in the streets of Singapore and Southall, and in the nightclubs of New Delhi and Newcastle. Constructing an expansive historical archive, Ballantyne draws on film, sculpture, fiction, and Web sites, as well as private papers, government records, journalism, and travel narratives. He proceeds from a critique of recent historiography on the development of Sikhism to an analysis of how Sikh identity changed over the course of the long nineteenth century. Ballantyne goes on to offer a reading of the contested interpretations of the life of Dalip Singh, the last Maharaja of Punjab. He concludes with an exploration of bhangra, a traditional form of Punjabi dance that diasporic artists have transformed into a globally popular music style. Much of bhangra's recent evolution stems from encounters of the Sikh and Afro-Caribbean communities, particularly in the United Kingdom. Ballantyne contends that such cross-cultural encounters are central in defining Sikh identity both in Punjab and the diaspora."--Publisher's website
Moving subjects : gender, mobility, and intimacy in an age of global empire( Book )

8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Moving Subjects is the first of its kind to make a case not simply for the necessity of a spatial analysis of imperial formations, but for the indispensability of an investigative approach that links space and movement with the domain of the intimate. Through a combination of careful archival research and a commitment to excavating the variety of 'mobile intimacies' at the heart of imperial power, its agents, and its interlocutors, this volume offers new evidence and approaches for scholars engaged in capturing the historical nuances of imperial domination. This book's contributors investigate how intimacy was constructed across the restless world of empire, a world that depended on the circulation of capital and commodities, the exchange of systems of governance and surveillance, and the movement of labourers, slaves, soldiers, and settlers.It's contributors include Tony Ballantyne, Antoinette Burton, Adrian Carton, David Haines, Katherine Ellinghaus, Charlotte Macdonald, Michael A. McDonnell, Kirsten McKenzie, Michelle Moran, Fiona Paisley, Adele Perry, Dana Rabin, Christine M. Skwiot, Rachel Standfield, Frances Steel, Elizabeth Vibert, and Kerry Wynn

Entanglements of empire : missionaries, Māori, and the question of the body by Tony Ballantyne( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first Protestant mission was established in New Zealand in 1814, initiating complex political, cultural, and economic entanglements with Maori. Tony Ballantyne shows how interest in missionary Christianity among influential Maori chiefs had far-reaching consequences for both groups. Deftly reconstructing cross-cultural translations and struggles over such concepts and practices as civilization, work, time and space, and gender, he identifies the physical body as the most contentious site of cultural engagement, with Maori and missionaries struggling over hygiene, tattooing, clothing, and sexual morality. Entanglements of Empire is particularly concerned with how, as a result of their encounters in the classroom, chapel, kitchen, and farmyard, Maori and the English mutually influenced each other's worldviews. Concluding in 1840 with New Zealand's formal colonization, this book offers an important contribution to debates over religion and empire

Empires and the reach of the global, 1870-1945 by Tony Ballantyne( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Empires and the Reach of the Global" brings the history of empires into sharp focus by showing how imperialism has been a shaping force not just in international politics but in the economies and cultures of today's world. Focusing on both the strengths and limits of imperial power, Tony Ballantyne and Antoinette Burton describe the creation and disintegration of the reigning world order in the period from 1870 to 1945. Using the British, Japanese, and Ottoman empires as case studies, the authors trace the communication, transportation, and economic networks that were instrumental to empire building. They highlight the role of empires as place-making regimes that organize geographic space as distinct territories. Militaries and missionaries, workplaces and households, all served as key domains of interaction within these territories, as colonial officials sought to manage the customs and lifeways of indigenous populations. Imperial connections contributed to the shrinking of time and space, but colonial encroachments also provoked opposition, which often played out in locations of everyday activity, from fields and factories to schools and prisons. Colonized territories sponsored a variety of forms of organized resistance, with full-fledged nationalist movements erupting onto the global scene in the interwar period. Ballantyne and Burton stress that empire was not something fabricated in European capitals and implemented "out there." Rather, imperial systems, with their many racial, gendered, and economic forms, affected empires in all of their parts--the metropole as well as the farthest outpost

1870-1945: Weltmärkte und Weltkriege( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zwischen 1870 und 1945 wurde die Welt durch die rasanten Fortschritte in Kommunikation und Transportwesen größer und kleiner zugleich. Neue Technologien verkürzen Entfernungen und beschleunigen den Austausch von Menschen, Produkten und Ideen. Der Band behandelt ein Zeitalter, in dem die wachsende globale Vernetzung nicht nur neue Ambitionen weckte, sondern auch Ängste und Rivalitäten, die sich schließlich in zwei Weltkriegen entluden - den zerstörerischsten Konflikten in der Geschichte der Menschheit. Jeder Beitrag des Bandes erörtert ein zentrales Thema: die Entstehung des modernen Staates und die Entwicklung der internationalen Beziehungen; imperiale Begegnungen und Konfrontationen; Bevölkerung und Migration; Weltmärkte und Hochindustrialisierung; transnationale gesellschaftliche und kulturelle Netzwerke. Mit den modernen Staatsformen und den wechselhaften Schicksalen der Imperien verstärkten sich die Anstrengungen, territoriale Grenzen abzustecken und zu kontrollieren. Doch während Menschen, Produkte, Kapital, Technologien und Loyalitäten über diese Absperrungen hinwegströmten, zerbrachen alte politische Ordnungen und mentale Selbstverständlichkeiten - in unerwarteten, oft grauenvollen und manchmal befreienden Eruptionen der Geschichte. "Fünf große Themenkreise verwebt der meisterliche erste Band einer neuen "Geschichte der Welt": Die Erfindung moderner Staatlichkeit, die global agierenden Imperien, das Phänomen der Migration, die Warenketten der globalen Wirtschaft und transnationale Strömungen... Wer sich die nötige Zeit gönnt, dieses wahrhaft große Buch zu erkunden, fühlt sich am Ende wie geläutert. Die Autoren dieses Bandes haben tausende von bunten Fäden unter der Regie der Herausgeberin zu einen meisterlich komponierten Wandteppich verwoben, der unser Wissen über die Epoche unserer unmittelbaren Vorfahren enorm vertieft und nicht nur Respekt einflößt vor ihrem Überlebenswillen und ihren Überlebensstrategien, sondern - ganz dezent - uns auch hilft, die Fehlentwicklungen unserer Gegenwart schärfer zu diagnostizieren" (dradio.de)
