1990 erlangte Namibia, das ehemalige Deutsch-Südwestafrika, als letzte afrikanische Kolonie die Unabhängigkeit. Mit diesem Buch liegt erstmals eine umfassende Einführung in die Geschichte dieses faszinierenden Vielvölkerstaates in deutscher Sprache vor. Die Historikerin Marion Wallace (London) und der Archäologe John Kinahan (Windhoek) bieten einen fundierten Überblick über die historischen Epochen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklungen seit den ersten Niederlassungen von Menschen in den Savannen und Wüsten des südwestlichen Afrikas. Die vielschichtige Darstellung der deutschen und der von Apartheitspolitik und Befreiungskampf geprägten südafrikanischen Kolonialzeit schliesst mit einer Einschätzung von Gesellschaft, Politik und Wirtschaft des unabhängigen Namibias.

Peoples and International Law is the most comprehensive current account of the right of self-determination in international law. The book examines the law of self-determination as the product of the interaction between nationalism and international law. This broad and interdisciplinary work charts this interaction through different aspects of the legal process – in international instruments, judicial decisions, legal obligations and historical context – critically and in extensive detail. The book is essential reading for those with an interest both in peoples’ rights in international law and the study of nationalism.

Borders of Global Theory Reflections from Within and Without

Genre: Social Science

Global Theory from Within and Without is a critical examination of the concept of globalization. There are in sociological theory many definitions of globalization. Sociological theory constructs a new theory of globalization starting from the structural changes of social systems at the beginning of the 21th century. The research subject is the ongoing connection of global studies and the research program of multiple modernities. The structural change is initiated by growing pace and different intensities of social exchange of the subsystems of societal communication in contemporary societies. The studies of global scholarship show that the structural change is not an indicator of any unified constitution of social systems.
