Die Reorganisation der Kollektivbetriebe im ländlichen Raum Russlands stellt das größte jemals durchgeführte Privatisierungsprojekt überhaupt dar. Einbezogen waren über 10 Mio. Beschäftigte und eine Fläche, die dem fünffachen Staatsgebiet der Bundesrepublik Deutschland entsprach. Sie musste meist gegen den Willen der Betroffenen durchgesetzt werden und erreichte ihr ursprüngliches Ziel, die Etablierung kleinbäuerlicher Strukturen, nicht einmal in Ansätzen. Die Studie geht den Ursachen dieses Scheiterns nach und setzt sich dabei insbesondere kritisch mit der verbreiteten These auseinander, kulturell verankerter Kollektivismus und Egalitarismus determinierten die Entwicklungen im ländlichen Raum. Stattdessen wird gezeigt, dass der Schlüssel zum Verständnis des Verlaufs der Transformation in der symbiotischen Beziehung zwischen Hofwirtschaften und Großbetrieben zu sehen ist, deren Auflösung durch die Einführung marktwirtschaftlicher Strukturen erzwungen wird.

First published in 1976, this Routledge Revivals reissue presents an analysis of the Swat Pathans, the people of the North-West Frontier Province of Pakistan, who belong administratively to Pakistan despite being a fiercely independent group, with their own codes and ways of life. Akbar S. Ahmed, who knows the Swat Pathans well through his family connections, presents a clear and sophisticated analysis of their complex society. The study provides an anthropological and critical re-examination of the ethnography of the Swat Pathans and the author suggests specific alternative models of social organization. The book also represents an important contribution to the general debate in the social sciences between the ‘methodological individualists’ and the ‘methodological holists’, and challenges some of the theoretical and methodological premises in anthropology. In particular the author is critical of Professor Fredrik Barth’s study of Swat Pathans, for he believes that the ‘Swat models’ have inadvertently become the basis for generalized, and often incorrect, understanding of models of Pathan socio-political organization in the social sciences.

Parables as Subversive Speech

Jesus as Pedagogue of the Oppressed

William Herzog shows that the focus of the parables was not on a vision of the glory of the reign of God but on the gory details of the way oppression served the interests of the ruling class. The parables were a form of social analysis, as well as a form of theological reflection. Herzog scrutinizes their canonical form to show the distinction between its purpose for Jesus and for evangelists. To do this, he uses the tools of historical criticism, including form criticism and redaction criticism.

Values are culturally specific. This handbook explains select biblical social values in their Mediterranean cultural contexts. Some examples of values are altruism, freedom, family-centeredness, obedience, parenting, and power. Though the English words for the values described here would be familiar to readers (e.g., altruism) the meanings of such words differ between cultures. In the Mediterranean world, for instance, altruism is a duty incumbent upon anyone who has surplus. It is interpersonal and group specific. In the West, especially in the United States, altruism is impersonal and universally oriented generosity that operates in a highly organized context. This handbook not only presents the Mediterranean meanings of these value words but also contrasts those meanings with Western ones.

Much has been written of China's peasant revolution, less has been written on the peasant experience of reform. In From Heaven to Earth Elisabeth Croll examines the images, policies and experiences of development and links the peasants' experience of revolution and reform with their conceptualisations of time and change and examines the new and recent desires which motivate peasant households in China; the new and strenuous demands which are generated by current reforms which allocate new responsibilities to the peasant family; and family strategies evolved by peasant housholds to maximise their resources within the context of reformed rural development. From Heaven to Earth will be of great interest to students, lecturers and professionals in development studies, anthropology, sociology and Chinese Studies.
