Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Asien, Note: 5.5, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Indien bildete einen Machtfaktor wa?hrend der A?ra des europa?ischen Kolonialismus. Wer Indien beherrschte, regierte u?ber ein Fu?nftel der damaligen Weltbevo?lkerung. Nicht nur die menschlichen Ressourcen in Form von gewaltigen Armeen und Bauern standen zur Verfu?gung. Das Eldorado fanden die Briten nicht in Form von verborgenem Gold in den Dschungeln von Su?damerika, sondern in Indien mit seinen riesigen Mengen an Menschen und Land, das den solange herbeigesehnten finanziellen und steuerlichen Segen bringen wu?rde. Die Grossma?chte rissen sich um dieses Potenzial. Die Portugiesen waren die ersten, die Handelsschiffe zur Neuentdeckung von Land und zu Gru?ndungen von Kolonien ru?steten. Die Spanier wollten ku?rzere Handelsrouten nach Indien finden und entdeckten durch Zufall Amerika. Die Holla?nder verwalteten bereits dutzende von befestigten Anlagen in Indien und die Franzosen hatten sich durch geschickte Politik grossen Einfluss in Indien erarbeitet. Den unbedeutenden Briten der East India Company schenkte man keine Beachtung. Welche Umsta?nde ermo?glichten der englischen East-India-Company aber ab Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts de facto eine Alleinherrschaft auf dem indischen Subkontinent zu etablieren? Wie konnten sie sich als Aussenseiter gegen die ma?chtigeren portugiesischen, holla?ndischen und franzo?sischen Indien-Gesellschaften behaupten? Welche historischen Prozesse fu?hrten schliesslich dazu, dass die Company zur indischen Territorialmacht aufstieg? Wie wirkte die duale Funktion eines profitorientierten Handelsunternehmens und eines expansiven milita?rischen Verwaltungsapparates auf die Struktur der Company aus und wie pra?gte die Bu?rde der Diwani den spa?teren Verlauf der Company? Ich habe meine Arbeit in drei Teile geteilt. Im ersten Teil gehe ich auf die Geschichte des Mogulreiches ein und wie es zerfiel. Im zweiten Teil gehe ich auf die Handelsaktivita?ten der East India Company ein, wie sie sich gegen die ma?chtigen Handelsrivalen hatte durchsetzen ko?nnen und wie sie den Aufstieg zur Territorialmacht gemeistert hatte. Im dritten Teil untersuche ich, welche Auswirkungen der Aufstieg zur Territorialmacht auf die Company und seine Umgebung zur Folge hatte.

The Khilafat-, Hijrat- and Gandhis Non-Cooperat...

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject History - Asia, University of Peshawar (Pakistan Study Centre), course: M.Phill, language: English, abstract: The Khilafat Movement was the first ripple in the stagnant ocean of Muslim politics in India. The movement combined them as a nation and gave them a good lesson of unity. Seeing the opportunity, Mahatma Gandhi quickly affiliated himself with the Khilafat movement. The Khilafat movement enabled Gandhi to spread his non-cooperation movement in the whole country of India. One byproduct of the Khilafat movement was the Hijrat movement. The Hijrat movement failed, affecting the financial condition of Muslims badly, but conveying their unstinted love for Islam. The Khilafat movement was unable to achieve its targets, but the political activity it created helped Muslims to organize themselves as a nation and to work systematically in the upcoming movement of independence from India.

Chinese in Colonial Burma - A Migrant Community...
90,94 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Using previously unexplored archives from colonial institutions and individuals, and primary materials produced by the Burmese Chinese, this comprehensive study investigates over a century of history of the Burmese Chinese under British colonial rule. Due to the peculiar position of Burma in the British imperial world and the Southeast Asian Chinese network, the Chinese community had a unique experience in a Southeast Asian colony governed by Europeans with an India-based system. This book reveals, through everyday life experience, prominent community figures, and milestone events, the internal rivalry and integration among different regional groups within the community, and the general impressions it left in contemporary observations and communal memories. The book also traces historical roots of some unsolved ethnic issues in present-day Myanmar. Yi Li received her PhD in history at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, and was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore between 2014 and 2015. Her research interests include modern Southeast Asia and Chinese diaspora, with a particular focus on migration and colonial history.

Tagore and Nationalism
118,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume brings together eminent Tagore scholars and younger writers to revisit the concepts of nation, nationalism, identity and selfhood, civilization, culture and homeland in Tagores writings. As these ideas take up the centre-stage of politics in the subcontinent as also elsewhere in the world in the 21st century, it becomes extremely relevant to revisit his works in this context. Tagores ambivalence towards nationalism as an ideology was apparent in the responses in his discussions with Indians and non-Indians alike. Tagore developed the concept of syncretic civilization as a basis of nationalist civilizational unity, where society was central, unlike the European model of state-centric civilization. However, as the subterranean tensions of communalism became clear in the early 20th century, Tagore reflexively critiqued his own political position in society. He thus emerged as the critic of the nation/nation-state and in this he shared his deep unease with other thinkers like Romain Rolland and Albert Einstein. This volume for the first time covers the socio-political, historical, literary and cultural concerns relating to Tagores efforts towards the de-colonization of the Self. The volume begins with various perspectives on Tagores ambivalence about nationalism. It encompasses critical examinations of Tagores literary works and other art forms as well as adaptations of his works on film. It also reads Tagores nationalism in a comparative mode with contemporary thinkers in India and abroad who were engaged in similar debates. K.L. Tuteja, PhD, is Former Professor of Modern Indian History at Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra and currently, Tagore Fellow at the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Shimla. Kaustav Chakraborty, PhD, is Assistant Professor and Head, Department of English, Southfield (Loreto) College, Darjeeling, West Bengal. He has completed a major Research Project on tribal folklore sponsored by the University Grants Commission and is the editor of the Prentice Hall, India edition of Indian Drama in English.

Joothan: A Dalits Life by Omprakash Valmiki. A ...
2,99 € *

Literature Review from the year 2016 in the subject History - Asia, grade: 8, Presidency College, Kolkata, language: English, abstract: The malicious practice of the Caste system has formed an essence of Indian society, without any parallel of the same significance. The Caste system has consolidated a hierarchical division of society in which people are subjected to various privileges or discrimination, owing to their birth in a family belonging to a particular caste. Whether the caste system was a colonial construction or an ancient curse requires a separate debate. In this paper, an autobiography by Omprakash Valmiki, who was said to be a Dalit (an outcaste, belonging to the lowest echelon of society), has been reviewed. In it he has described daily struggles in the life of a low-born. While the world had cheered the process of decolonization and applauded the new notions of humanitarian values and worth of every human life, India, which was soon to be the largest democracy, could hardly break away from the shackles of the loathsome caste system. Valmiki has given us insights into the functioning of Dalit lives in the post independence era, that brought about changes in official documents and legal procedures but without much resonance of them in practical application.
