checking this assumption remains to be done. The chapters, taken together, do provide a glimpse into the constant work of maintaining cooperation. They show us how peaceful cooperation is indeed marked by the ongoing conversion of relevant resources into relations of dominance and deference and, ultimately, preferred outcomes. Understanding better how the region ‘works’ cooperatively, rather than just asserting that it is largely cooperative, has policy implications both for securing progress in Arctic governance and for seeking to see what lessons can be derived for

Rather than recall and rehearse that theoretical apparatus, allow me only to point to some of those writings: Dube, Stitches on Time ; Saurabh Dube , After Conversion: Cultural Histories of Modern India ( New Delhi : Yoda Press , 2010 ); and Saurabh

Association and distinction in politics and religion
Rodney Barker

elite: the masses must comply with the religion of the elite, but need not, indeed should not, engage with it with the sophistication, active participation, or understanding which characterises elite devotion and theological understanding. Latin will remain the secular and religious language of the distinctive few, mass will be performed behind a rood screen, the conversions of humanity will simply be the conversion of kings. Harold Lasswell and Merritt Fox contrast autocratic separation, the Forbidden City or the Kremlin under both tsars and

fraught linkages underlay critical articulations of modernity, evangelism, and empire. Third and finally, the study explores wide-ranging expressions of community and nation in the wake of conversion. These underscore controversial issues of the “majority” and the “minority,” politics and religion, and the citizen and the convert, especially in independent India. These processes each appear molded by

, and I discuss the place of modular assumptions of modernity as shoring up the important, critical work of Habermas in Dube, After Conversion . 26 Considering the active interchange between the “ought” and the “is,” the “ideal” and the “real,” especially in

sovereignty over their putative Arctic ‘backyards’ in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as we shall see below. These colonial efforts included the growing use of native lands for non-​renewable resource extraction (Mitchell, 1996; Berger, 1985), religious conversion processes (Balzer, 1999), extension of law and justice (Grant, 2002), residential schools, medical care (including isolation of those with infectious diseases, such as tuberculosis) (Shkilnyk, 1985), and forced relocation and settlement policies (Marcus, 1995; Damas, 2002; Vitebsky, 2005). The effects of

indigenous authority and political economy; the containment of fluid borders between field and forest; and the subordination of the Indian economy to North Atlantic cycles of trade, profit-making, and consumption. On the one hand, the systematic destruction of forests, the conversion of commons into property, and the emphasis on increasing land revenue had led to the lineaments of an agrarian order

Seas, oceans and civilisations
Jeremy C.A. Smith

conversion of footholds into colonial territories, Europe’s oceanic empires had forged new constellations of power from the connections of the Western hemisphere with the central world economies, state systems and multi-​civilisational zones of Asia, Africa and the Indian Ocean. They were fully fledged world empires in the sense that they projected ambitions for pre-​eminence in the imperial worlds that they organised. They are categorically distinct from the portal and thalassic civilisations and states that we turn to next. 121 Saltwater horizons 121 Porosity of

Jewish emancipation and the Jewish question
Robert Fine and Philip Spencer

–114.  3 In 1791 the French National Assembly annulled all legal barriers to citizenship ‘affecting individuals of the Jewish persuasion’. It meant that Jews, in principle, could secure civic integration without the quid pro quo of conversion to Christianity or the provision of special, financial services to the state.
