Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Once Intrepid Warriors Gender, Ethnicity, and the Cultural Politics of Maasai Development Dorothy L. Hodgson How the experience and legacy of development have shaped Maasai identities today. "Hodgson presents us with a complex, interactive picture of change over time, one dominated neither by the Maasai nor the state and development apparatus.... The Maasai emerge not simply as the 'intrepid warriors' envisioned by government and development officials, or even sometimes by themselves, but as active agents in the construction of their own history. This history, however, is often contradictory, contested, and varied." --Jane Parpart "... the first and only book that systematically addresses Maasai culture and development from multiple perspectives of cultural identity and ethnicity, issues of land, labor, education, and, not least, changing perspectives and understanding of gender and gender relations in the society... rich both in historical detail and ethnographic substance." --Elliot M. Fratkin Drawing on archival sources as well as her extensive fieldwork in Tanzania, Dorothy L. Hodgson explores the ways identity, development, and gender have interacted to shape the Maasai into who and what they are today. By situating the Maasai in the political, economic, and social context of Tanzania and of world events, Hodgson shows how outside forces, and views of development in particular, have influenced Maasai lifeways, especially gender relations. Attitudes and assumptions of government and development officials who believed that the Maasai must maintain their pastoralist tradition determined the types of development schemes imposed. But rather than reinforce visions of the Maasai as intrepid warriors, development created new gender hierarchies, new responses to the pressures of modernity, and ambivalent attitudes toward education and local, national, and international politics. Five profiles of Maasai men and women interspersed within the text bring Maasai voices to life and show that they were never passive participants in their own history. Once Intrepid Warriors reflects the complexity and variability of Maasai society as it has responded to outside interventions and internal struggles over how to protect Maasai interests in a changing world. Dorothy L. Hodgson teaches anthropology at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, and is affiliated with the Center for African Studies and the Women's Studies Program. She is editor of Rethinking Pastoralism in Africa: Gender, Culture and the Myth of the Patriarchal Pastoralist and co-editor of "Wicked" Women and the Reconfiguration of Gender in Africa.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Despite impressive exploits during World War II, Imperial Japan's military intelligence services remain virtually unknown. Stephen C. Mercado has written a pioneering study of the Imperial Japanese Army's elite Nakano School, which trained more than 2,000 men from 1938 to 1945 in the arts of espionage, propaganda, and irregular warfare." "Working in the shadows during World War II, these dedicated warriors of the Nakano School executed a range of missions. They played major roles in attempting to subvert British rule in India, captured oil fields in the Dutch East Indies, fought U.S. forces in the Philippines and on Okinawa, and organized Japanese guerrilla units that could have made the invasion of Japan a bloodbath." "In the postwar period, Nakano veterans became valuable U.S. allies by providing American intelligence with a wealth of information on the Soviet Far East, China, and Korea. Many would also influence postwar Japan through prominent positions in the government and the private sector." "Based on archival research and the memoirs of Japanese veterans, The Shadow Warriors of Nakano sheds much-needed light on Japan's wartime military and intelligence history as well as postwar Japanese affairs."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Download or read book Brown Warriors of the Raj written by Kaushik Roy and published by Manohar Publishers. This book was released on 2008 with total page 360 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Sepoy Army was one of the pivots of Britain's overseas empire. After 1857, this army policed the subcontinent as well as Britain's extra-Indian overseas possessions. The importance of the Sepoy Army for the Raj could be gleaned from the fact that it consumed about 30 per cent of the government's revenue. For the colonised also, the colonial army was one of the largest government employers in India. Nevertheless, it remains an underdog both in Indian and the British-Imperial historiography. This volume focuses on recruitment and the mechanics of command. It attempts to answer pertinent questions like: who were recruited and why, how the recruits were conditioned into soldiers, etc. Recruitment was the product of two opposing ideologies: the Martial Race ideology and the Anti-Martial Race ideology. The Sepoy Army was the largest volunteer army in the world. The Indians joined the army and remained loyal to it mostly because of a host of tangible and intangible incentives offered to the soldiers and institutionalisation of the coercive apparatus by the British command. The Study begins at 1859 and ends at 1913. This is because after the 1857 Uprising, the Bengal Army experienced a sea change in its organisation and social architecture. And again, 1914 constituted a break since the army went through a fivefold expansion. The author attempts a cross-cultural comparative analysis with other armies in order to flesh out the specificity of the Sepoy Army. This much awaited study is invaluable for scholars of military and modern Indian history.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this compact study, Thembisa Waetjen explores how gender structured the mobilization of Zulu nationalism in South Africa, where ethnic communitarian and liberal democratic conceptions of nation competed for dominance as anti-apartheid efforts gained force during the 1980s. As its title suggests, Workers and Warriors argues that political struggles fought out in lethal battles between men - struggles over the nature of political authority and citizenship, territorial sovereignty and cultural tradition, industrial relationships and street-level control - were necessarily bound up with struggles over the changing meaning of male gender identities, power, and practices in conditions of rapid social change.

Book excerpt: Tracing the evolution of state military institutions from the seventh through the twelfth centuries, this book challenges much of the received wisdom of Western scholarship on the origins and early development of warriors in Japan. This prelude to the rise of the samurai, who were to become the masters of Japan's medieval and early modern eras, was initiated when the imperial court turned for its police and military protection to hired swords--professional mercenaries largely drawn from the elites of provincial society. By the middle of the tenth century, this provincial military order had been handed a virtual monopoly of Japan's martial resources. Yet it was not until near the end of the twelfth century that these warriors took the first significant steps toward asserting their independence from imperial court control. Why did they not do so earlier? Why did they remain obedient to a court without any other military sources for nearly 300 years? Why did the court put itself in the potentially (and indeed, ultimately) precarious situation of contracting for its military needs with private warriors? These and related questions are the focus of the author's study. Most of the few Western treatments see the origins of the samurai in the incompetence and inactivity of the imperial court that forced residents in the provinces to take up arms themselves. According to this view, a warrior class was spontaneously generated just as one had been in Europe a few centuries earlier, and the Japanese court was doomed to eventually perish by the sword because of its failure to live by it. Instead, the author argues that it was largely court activism that put swords in the hands of rural elites, that court military policy, from the very beginning of the imperial state era, followed a long-term pattern of increasing reliance on the martial skills of the gentry. This policy reflected the court's desire for maximum efficiency in its military institutions, and the policy's success is shown by the court retaining to itself for centuries the exclusive right to sanction the use of coercive force.

Book excerpt: Karl May¿s German-language novel of the American West has been a perennial favorite in Europe since its release in 1892. The story of the German-born frontiersman ¿Old Shatterhand¿ and his Apache companion ¿Winnetou¿ in the western plains and mountains has been reprinted innumerable times, made into films and plays, and has inspired musical compositions. Today in Germany, Old West enthusiasts by the tens of thousands attend outdoor ¿Karl May¿ festivals each summer. Yet, despite Karl May¿s immense popularity in Europe, this prolific author of adventure fiction is virtually unknown in the United States and Canada. May¿s writing has shaped a European vision of the post-Civil War American West¿one uniquely Teutonized by his prolific pen. Interestingly enough, May did not visit the United States until late in life, in 1908¿long after his most popular western stories were published. In the WSU Press edition, David Koblick¿s excellent translation and abridgment puts the best known novel by Karl May into the hands of an English speaking audience. In addition, an introduction by Koblick and an insightful foreword by Richard H. Cracroft of Brigham Young University provide cultural and historical perspectives on the Karl May phenomenon. ¿An excellent modern translation.¿--The Wall Street Journal
