Описание: This volume brings together the major political writings of Mary Wollstonecraft in the order in which they appeared in the revolutionary 1790s. It traces her passionate and indignant response to the excitement of the early days of the French Revolution and then her uneasiness at its later bloody phase. It reveals her developing understanding of women`s involvement in the political and social life of the nation and her growing awareness of the relationship betweenpolitics and economics and between political institutions and the individual. In personal terms, the works show her struggling with a belief in the perfectibility of human nature through rational education, a doctrine that became weaker under the onslaught of her own miserable experience and the revolutionary massacres. Janet Todd`s introduction illuminates the progress or Wollstonecraft`s thought, showing that a reading of all three works allows her to emerge as a more substantial political writer than a study of The Rights of Woman alone can reveal.

Описание: Dr Burton argues that it is misleading to consider world society as comprising states as separate entities: states comprise clusters of systems, many of which cut across state boundaries. He argues that a systems approach makes possible an analysis of the relations of systems to states, of conflict between systems and states, and amongst states, and generally more insights into the nature of world society. He is critical of the old-fashioned art of diplomacy and suggests the basis of a science of diplomacy. Originally published in 1968, this book was intended to relate theoretical approaches in International Relations with the practice of diplomacy, and especially with the avoidance and resolution of conflict. In the last part of the book the author suggests guidelines which diplomats might find useful, and which might also improve the general understanding of world society.

Описание: In the period between the 1770s and 1840s, through the process of colonial state formation, the early colonial state in India was able to harness and extract vast amounts of agrarian wealth in north India. However, little is known of the histories of the Indian scribes and the role they played in shaping the early patterns of British colonial rule.This book offers a new way of interpreting the colonial state’s origins in north India. It examines how the formation of early agrarian revenue settlements exacerbated an extant late Mughal taxation tradition, and how the success of British power was shaped by this extant paper-oriented revenue culture. It goes on to examine how the service and cultural histories of various Hindu scribal communities fit within broader changes in political administration, taxation, patterns of governance and a shared Indo-Islamic administrative culture. The author argues that British power after the late eighteenth century came as much through bureaucratic mastery, paper and taxes as it did through military force and commercial ruthlessness. The book draws upon private family papers, interviews and Persian sources to demonstrate how the fortunes of scribes changed between empires, and the important role they played at the height of the British Raj by 1900.Offering a detailed account of how agrarian wealth provided the bedrock of the colonial state’s later patterns of administration, this book is a unique and refreshing contribution to studies in South Asian History, Governance and Imperialism.
