Through the voices and perspectives of the members of an extended Hawaiian family, or `ohana, this book tells the story of North American imperialism in Hawai`i from the Great Depression to the new millennium. The family members offer their versions of being "Native Hawaiian" in an American state, detailing the ways in which US laws, policies, and institutions made, and continue to make, an impact on their daily lives. The book traces the ways that Hawaiian values adapted to changing conditions under a Territorial regime and then after statehood. These conditions involved claims for land for Native Hawaiian Homesteads, education in American public schools, military service, and participation in the Hawaiian cultural renaissance. Based on fieldwork observations, kitchen table conversations, and talk-stories, or mo`olelo, this book is a unique blend of biography, history, and anthropological analysis.

Spiel mit dem Feuer: Die britische Aussenpolitik vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg Europa vor dem Ersten Weltkrieg: Im Zentrum der internationalen und globalen Beziehungen agiert die Weltmacht Grossbritannien. Auf allen Ebenen der Diplomatie versucht es die alten Bundnisse der europaischen Staaten aufzubrechen. Die Geschichtswissenschaft hat diese Bemuhungen bisher als Reaktionen auf die aggressive Aussenpolitik des Deutschen Kaiserreiches interpretiert. Andreas Rose kann dagegen aufzeigen, wie sehr die englische Aussenpolitik von ganz anderen Interessen getrieben wurde: innerbritischen, kontinentalen und imperialen. Er entwirft den politischen Raum Londons, in dem uber aussen- und sicherheitspolitische Massnahmen intensiv diskutiert und aus dem heraus Entscheidungen getroffen wurden."

The South Pacific archipelago of Vanuatu simultaneously experienced the two major types of colonialism of the modern era (British and French), the only instance in which these colonial powers jointly ruled the same people in the same territory over an extended period of time. This, in addition to its small size and recent independence (1980), makes Vanuatu an ideal case study of the clash of contemporary colonialism and its enduring legacies. At the same time, the uniqueness of Melanesian society highlights the singular role of indigenous culture in shaping both colonial and postcolonial political reality. With its close attention to global processes, Bridging Mental Boundaries in a Postcolonial Microcosm provides a fresh comparative approach to an island state that has most frequently been examined from an ethnographic or area studies perspective. William F. S. Miles looks at the long-term effects of the joint Franco-British administration in public policy, political disputes, and social cleavages in post-independence Vanuatu. He emphasizes the strong imprint left by condocolonialism in dividing ni-Vanuatu into Anglophones and Francophones, but also suggest how this basic division is being replaced (or overlaid) by divisions based on urban or rural residence, traditional or modern employment, and disparities between the status and activities of men and women. As such, this volume is more than an analysis of a unique case of colonialism and its effects; it is an interpretation of the evolution of an insular society beset by particularly convoluted precolonial, colonial, and postcolonial fractures. Based principally on research conducted in 1991 and, following a key change in Vanuatu's government, a subsequent visit in 1992, the analysis is enriched by regular comparisons between Vanuatu and other colonized societies where the author has carried out original research, including Niger, Nigeria, Martinique, and Pondicherry. Extensive interviews with ni-Vanuatu are integrated throughout the text, presenting islanders' views of their own experience.
