This Action Research study dealt with the forced resettlement and integration of La Pipe village community in Mauritius once located in the catchment area of the largest dam, the Midland dam, planned to be built in 1995. The La Pipe community was powerless at the beginning of the problem but was empowered by Mouvement Pour L'Autosuffisance Alimentaire(MAA), a Mauritian national NGO, to reverse the power relations in their favor. Community cohesion and participation in decsion making were at the heart of the positive outcomes of the resetllement process. The study also confirms that negotiation is fundamental in a resettlement issue. Each family of the community finally obtained a piece of land and a housing unit. In the truest sense the resettlement of La Pipe community was incomplete since the livelihood relocation did not take place.The non-availaibility of livelihood opportunities at the relocation site resulted in their impoverishment. A resettlement theory has evolved from the study which confirms other theories and can be replicated in other dam projects where forced resettlements are taking place.

"Masterly" -- The New Yorker A Smithsonian Magazine Best History Book of the YearA groundbreaking, haunting, and profoundly moving history of modernity's greatest tragedy: concentration campsFor over 100 years, at least one concentration camp has existed somewhere on Earth. First used as battlefield strategy, camps have evolved with each passing decade, in the scope of their effects and the savage practicality with which governments have employed them. Even in the twenty-first century, as we continue to reckon with the magnitude and horror of the Holocaust, history tells us we have broken our own solemn promise of "never again."In this harrowing work based on archival records and interviews during travel to four continents, Andrea Pitzer reveals for the first time the chronological and geopolitical history of concentration camps. Beginning with 1890s Cuba, she pinpoints concentration camps around the world and across decades. From the Philippines and Southern Africa in the early twentieth century to the Soviet Gulag and detention camps in China and North Korea during the Cold War, camp systems have been used as tools for civilian relocation and political repression. Often justified as a measure to protect a nation, or even the interned groups themselves, camps have instead served as brutal and dehumanizing sites that have claimed the lives of millions.Drawing from exclusive testimony, landmark historical scholarship, and stunning research, Andrea Pitzer unearths the roots of this appalling phenomenon, exploring and exposing the staggering toll of the camps: our greatest atrocities, the extraordinary survivors, and even the intimate, quiet moments that have also been part of camp life during the past century.

The Transformation of the Southeastern Indians, 1540-1760 Edited by Robbie Ethridge and Charles Hudson With essays by R. P. Stephen Davis, Jr., Penelope B. Drooker, Patricia Galloway, Steven C. Hahn, Marvin D. Jeter, Paul Kelton, Timothy K. Perttula, Christopher B. Rodning, Helen C. Rountree, Marvin T. Smith, and John E. Worth The first two hundred years of Western civilization in the Americas was a time when fundamental and sometimes catastrophic changes occurred in Native American communities in the South. In The Transformation of the Southeastern Indians, historians, anthropologists, and archaeologists provide perspectives on how this era shaped American Indian society for later generations and how it even affects these communities today. This collection of essays presents the most current scholarship on the social history of the South, identifying and examining the historical forces, trends, and events that were attendant to the formation of the Indians of the colonial South. The essayists discuss how Southeastern Indian culture evolved. They focus on such aspects as the introduction of European diseases to the New World, long-distance migration and relocation, the influences of the Spanish mission system, the effects of the English plantation system, the northern fur trade of the English, and the French, Dutch, and English trade of Indian slaves and deerskins in the South. This book covers the full geographic and social scope of the Southeast, including the indigenous peoples of Florida, Virginia, Maryland, the Appalachian mountains, the Carolina Piedmont, the Ohio Valley, and the Central and Lower Mississippi Valleys. Robbie Ethridge is an associate professor of southern studies and anthropology at the University of Mississippi. Charles Hudson is Franklin Professor of Anthropology and History at the University of Georgia.

Exile & the Politics of Exclusion in the Americas
44,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection of essays brings together leading experts in the study of exile and expatriation, whose historical and comparative perspectives enable readers to understand the phenomenon of forced displacement in the Americas. Political exile, a major political practice throughout most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, is still an under-researched topic. While ubiquitous and fascinating, with some notable and important exceptions, until recently it has been conceived as somewhat marginal for the development of these societies, instead being studied in the framework of traditional concepts and concerns in history and the social sciences. Following recent developments that highlight the centrality of diasporas and transnational studies, of transience and relocation, this book proposes that the study of exile should become a topic of central concern, closely related to basic theoretical problems and controversies on the structure of power, national representation and transnational displacement. The editors and contributors approach these issues through a nuanced reading of context and history. The work discusses the formative impact of exile in many of these societies at different times, while analysing how it evolved and changed its character throughout the centuries. The systematic studies brought together in this volume will likely generate new readings of history and the societies in the Americas and the Diasporas, moving away from the traditional understanding of national histories towards more regional, transnational and even continental dimensions.

Bear Mountain

Bear Mountain, once home to Native Americans and early settlers, had evolved by the 20th century into one of the nation,s most outstanding public parks. Threatened by quarrying operations and the relocation of Sing Sing Prison, this integral section of the Hudson Highlands was saved by the combined efforts of local citizens and the Palisades Interstate Park Commission. Graced by a deep, picturesque lake at the foot of the mountain and accessible by riverboat, train, and automobile, Bear Mountain State Park became a playground for New York City residents. Visionary park management enabled the park to expand, encompassing nature exhibits, a zoo, camps, and restaurants. It continues to be a year-round recreation center featuring hiking, boating, swimming, and cross-country skiing.

Arcata
22,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Arcata, a bright jewel surrounded by the redwood forested hills of northern Humboldt Bay, was once the territory of the Wiyot Indians. The tribe only barely survived massacres and relocation after a town was founded there in 1850, a supply point for gold seekers at nearby mines. That town soon evolved into a center for a thriving lumber industry that fed sawmills and a barrel factory, and dairies that prospered on the pastoral Arcata Bottom. Home to Humboldt State University and the much loved Humboldt Crabs baseball team, Arcata is attracting new businesses, industries, and national attention for its innovative Arcata Marsh public works project.
