Détails: Partez sur les traces de James S. Lee et revivez ses nombreux périples ! La plupart des écrivains voyageurs ont entendu parler de James S. Lee et de son Underworld of the East, un classique oublié de la littérature de voyage et de la « drug literature » jamais encore traduit en français. Ingénieur des mines en Asie mais né en 1872 dans le Nord de l’Angleterre victorienne, James S. Lee a attendu d’avoir 62 ans pour publier le récit (scandaleux, pour beaucoup) de ses voyages à travers le monde. De l’Inde à l’Indonésie, de la Malaisie à Shanghai, du Brésil au Congo, des bas-fonds portuaires aux jungles tropicales les plus denses, des lupanars secrets aux fumeries d’opium souterraines, le lecteur suit cet élégant et désarmant junkie dans sa recherche effrénée d’expériences interdites. Underworld of the East retrace l’intégralité de ces voyages à travers le monde colonial des années 1895-1915, et offre une vision particulièrement moderne du rapport à la médecine et aux cultures étrangères. Entre deux prises de stupéfiants, le narrateur du récit élabore une esquisse de testament écologique, dresse un procès impitoyable du système colonial de l’intérieur, et témoigne d’une sensibilité aux cultures étrangères particulièrement surprenante dans le Commonwealth victorien déclinant des années 1895-1915. Un véritable carnet de voyages relatant les aventures de l'auteur à travers le monde, entre ses découvertes des empires coloniaux et sa consommation démesurée de drogues EXTRAIT Avant de commencer le déroulement chronologique de mon récit, je dirai quelques mots de l’usage de la drogue en général. Au cours des vingt ans durant lesquels je prenais constamment de multiples substances, diverses personnes, y compris des médecins et des pharmaciens, m’ont demandé comment je pouvais continuer à consommer des drogues pendant si longtemps, et en si grandes quantités, tout en restant en bonne santé. Le récit de mes expériences l’expliquera, et pourra aussi montrer l’usage de la drogue sous un angle entièrement nouveau. Je ne prends plus aucune drogue depuis de nombreuses années, mais durant les vingt ans dont traite ce récit, j’ai fait usage de morphine, de cocaïne, de haschich, d’opium, et de bon nombre d’autres drogues, aussi bien de manière isolée qu’en association les unes avec les autres. CE QU'EN PENSE LA CRITIQUE - "Underworld of the East est à la fois une curiosité littéraire et un livre-culte de la littérature de voyage qui méritait d’être enfin publié en France." (Jean-Claude Perrier, Livres-Hebdo) - "Son témoignage retrace une aventure unique, subversive et dépeignée, digne de figurer parmi les récits de voyages extraordinaires." (Eric Dussert, Le Matricule des Anges) - "Délirantes, drôles, touchantes, voire cinglées, ses tribulations feront le délice des amateurs d’authentiques curiosités." (Nicolas Ungemuth, Le Figaro Magazine) - "Les têtes de chapitres dégagent le parfum d’interdit et d’exotisme qui imprègnent les mémoires de James S. Lee." (François Montpezat, Les Dernières Nouvelles d’Alsace)

Détails: SCIENCE AND EMPIRES: FROM THE INTERNATIONAL COLLOQUIUM TO THE BOOK Patrick PETITJEAN, Catherine JAMI and Anne Marie MOULIN The International Colloquium "Science and Empires - Historical Studies about Scientific De velopment and European Expansion" is the product of an International Colloquium, "Sciences and Empires - A Comparative History of Scien tific Exchanges: European Expansion and Scientific Development in Asian, African, American and Oceanian Countries". Organized by the REHSEIS group (Research on Epistemology and History of Exact Sciences and Scientific Institutions) of CNRS (National Center for Scientific Research), the colloquium was held from 3 to 6 April 1990 in the UNESCO building in Paris. This colloquium was an idea of Professor Roshdi Rashed who initiated this field of studies in France some years ago, and proposed "Sciences and Empires" as one of the main research programmes for the The project to organize such a colloquium was a bit REHSEIS group. of a gamble. Its subject, reflected in the title "Sciences and Empires", is not a currently-accepted sub-discipline of the history of science; rather, it refers to a set of questions which found autonomy only recently. The terminology was strongly debated by the participants and, as is frequently suggested in this book, awaits fuller clarification.

Détails: Jacques Waardenburg writes about relations between Muslims and adherents of other religions. After illuminating various aspects of Islam from an outside point of view in his volume "Islam" (published in 2002 by de Gruyter) his second volume changes the perspective: The author shows how Muslims perceived non-Muslims - particularly Christianity and "the West", but also Judaism and Asian religions - in many centuries of religious dialogue and tensions. The main focus is on Muslim minorities in Western countries and on religious dialogues of which he provides first-hand knowledge through his participation in several important dialogue meetings. After 50 years of research and personal involvement, Waardenburg aims at a mutual understanding and reconciliation of Islam and other religions, particularly Christianity, both on an international level as well as on a more local level where "old" and "new", Christian and Muslim Europeans live together.

Détails: This book is about the struggles of female and male descendants of Indian indentured migrants in Trinidad in the first half of the twentieth century, each desiring to preserve some aspects of the gender system brought from India between 1845 and 1917, which were important to their continued definition of ethnic identity and community in Trinidad. At the same time the situation of migration allows for challenges to the caste system of Hinduism and, for women and some men, new opportunities to confront the more restricting aspect of Indian patriarchy which followed them across the seas from India.

Détails: The Bureaucracy of Beauty is a wide-ranging work of cultural theory that connects literary studies, postcoloniality, the history of architecture and design, and the history and present of empire. Professor Ananya Roy of UC Berkeley calls it a "fantastic book," and in many ways this is the best description of it. The Bureaucracy of Beauty begins with nineteenth-century Britain's Department of Science and Arts, a venture organized by the Board of Trade, and how the DSA exerted a powerful influence on the growth of museums, design schools, and architecture throughout the British Empire. But this is only the book's literal subject: in a remarkable set of chapters, Dutta explores the development of international laws of intellectual property, ideas of design pedagogy, the technological distinction between craft and industry, the relation of colonial tutelage to economic policy, the politics and technology of exhibition, and competing philosophies of aesthetics. His thinking across these areas is ignited by engagements with Benjamin, Marx, Adam Smith and Jeremy Bentham, Kant, Mill, Ruskin, and Gandhi. A rich study in the history of ideas, of design and architecture, and of cultural politics, The Bureaucracy of Beauty converges on the issues of present-day globalization. From nineteenth-century Britain to twenty-first century America, The Bureaucracy of Beauty offers a theory of how things - big things -change.

Détails: The City and the Wilderness recounts the journeys and microhistories of Indo-Persian travelers across the Indian Ocean and their encounters with the Burmese Kingdom and its littoral at the turn of the nineteenth century. As Mughal sovereignty waned under British colonial rule, Indo-Persian travelers and intermediaries linked to the East India Company explored and surveyed the Burmese Empire, inscribing it as a forest landscape and Buddhist kingdom at the crossroads of South and Southeast Asia. Based on colonial Persian travel books and narratives in which Indo-Persian knowledge and perceptions of the wondrous edges of the Indian Ocean merged with Orientalist pursuits, The City and the Wilderness uncovers fading histories of inter-Asian crossings and exchanges at the ends of the Mughal world.

Détails: ​This volume decentres the view of urbanisation in India from large agglomerations towards smaller urban settlements. It presents the outcomes of original research conducted over three years on subaltern processes of urbanization. The volume is organised in four sections. A first one deals with urbanisation dynamics and systems of cities with chapters on the new census towns, demographic and economic trajectories of cities and employment transformation. The interrelations of land transformation, social and cultural changes form the topic of the “land, society, belonging” section based on ethnographic work in various parts of India (Karnataka, Himachal Pradesh, Arunachal Pradesh and Tamil Nadu). A third section focuses on public policies, governance and urban services with a set of macro-analysis based papers and specific case studies. Understanding the nature of production and innovation in non-metropolitan contexts closes this volume. Finally, though focused on India, this research raises larger questions with regard to the study of urbanisation and development worldwide.

Détails: Probably the first thought which will occur to the reader who is acquainted with the matters treated in this work will be that the subject is too large. A history of Hinduism or Buddhism or even of both within the frontiers of India may be a profitable though arduous task, but to attempt a historical sketch of the two faiths in their whole duration and extension over Eastern Asia is to choose a scene unsuited to any canvas which can be prepared at the present day. Not only is the breadth of the landscape enormous but in some places it is crowded with details which cannot be omitted while in others the principal features are hidden by a mist which obscures the unity and connection of the whole composition. No one can feel these difficulties more than I do myself or approach his work with more diffidence, yet I venture to think that wide surveys may sometimes be useful and are needed in the present state of oriental studies. For the reality of Indian influence in Asia—from Japan to the frontiers of Persia, from Manchuria to Java, from Burma to Mongolia—is undoubted and the influence is one. You cannot separate Hinduism from Buddhism, for without it Hinduism could not have assumed its medieval shape and some forms of Buddhism, such as Lamaism, countenance Brahmanic deities and ceremonies, while in Java and Camboja the two religions were avowedly combined and declared to be the same. Neither is it convenient to separate the fortunes of Buddhism and Hinduism outside India from their history within it, for although the importance of Buddhism depends largely on its foreign conquests, the forms which it assumed in its new territories can be understood only by reference to the religious condition of India at the periods when successive missions were despatched.
