1945 bis heute die globalisierte Welt by Akira Iriye( Book )

3 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in German and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Aufmerksamkeit richtet sich auf bisher wenig beachtete Querbeziehungen und Wechselwirkungen: auf Migrationen von Einzelnen und Gruppen und die Gründung neuer Gesellschaften, auf die interkontinentale Ausbreitung von Technologien, Religionen oder politischen Ideen, auf globale Kommunikationsnetze, Handelsströme und Konsummuster, auf Imperialismus, Kolonialismus und grossräumige Kriege." Akira Iriye und Jürgen Osterhammel Die Weltpolitik im Zeichen des Kalten Krieges, die ökonomische Globalisierung, der dramatische Wandel der Erde mit einer Verdoppelung und dann Verdreifachung der Weltbevölkerung innerhalb weniger Jahrzehnte sowie einer explosionsartigen Zunahme aller Arten von Umweltbelastungen bis hin zur Klimaerwärmung und Reaktorkatastrophen, die Herausbildung einer globalen Kulturgemeinschaft bei gleichzeitiger, teilweise offensiv behaupteter Diversität - all diese Megatrends der Weltgeschichte seit 1945 sind Gegenstand dieses neuen Bandes der "Geschichte der Welt".-
Europe's Battery: The Making of the Alpine Energy Landscape, 1870-1955 by Marc Dennis Landry( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines the environmental history of hydropower development in the Alps from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries. Analyzing government archival files, associational journals, conference proceedings, and published contemporary material from several Alpine countries, it seeks to determine how and why Europeans modified the Alpine landscape to generate hydropower, and to explore the consequences of these decisions. I argue that during this time period, Europeans thoroughly transformed the Alpine environment, creating what I call "Europe's Battery": a gigantic system for storing hydropower and distributing it on a continental scale

Unredeemed Land: The U.S. Civil War, Changing Land Use Practices, and the Environmental Limitations of Agriculture in the South, 1840-1880 by Erin Stewart Mauldin( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Using shifts in farming practices and debates over the best way to use land as a way to illuminate the ecological legacies of the Civil War, this project shows that the postwar replacement of extensive land use practices with more intensive, continuous cultivation went hand-in-hand with the hallmarks of the postwar agricultural system such as the decline in self-sufficiency among sharecroppers and tenants, the closing of the open range, and expanded cotton production. Environmental constraints unmasked by the war forced both black and white farmers to rely on the market for the inputs required to make increasingly intensive cultivation methods work. At the same time, the pressure to maximize space for the cultivation of staple crops and the increasing impracticality of free-range animal husbandry and shifting cultivation weakened the economic logic of maintaining common lands. By 1880, the cracks in the extensive land use regime that supported southern agriculture before the war had widened considerably, shattering the foundational practices southerners had once used to adapt their agricultural system to regional environmental conditions
Planting Politics: Pastoralists and French Environmental Administration in the Nineteenth-Century Mediterranean by Andrea Elizabeth Williams( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study uses the lens of forest administration to examine the transformation of Mediterranean pastoralism over the course of the nineteenth century. Drawing extensively on archival research, it focuses on case studies in Provence, southwestern Anatolia, and northern Algeria. For thousands of years, mobile pastoralists, agriculturalists, and forests coexisted in the Mediterranean region. In the nineteenth century, French forestry became a global model for scientific forest management. Its influence extended across the Mediterranean into French colonial Algeria and Anatolia, where France established a forestry mission in collaboration with the Ottoman state. The appearance, implementation, and international spread of French scientific forestry coincided with the retreat and marginalization of Mediterranean mobile pastoralists, both within and beyond the borders of France
The Mountains are Ours: Ecology and Settlement in Late Ottoman and Early Republican Cilicia, 1856-1956 by Christopher Gratien( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Centered on the city of Adana, the Çukurova delta plain was home to small urban and village communities along with transhumant pastoralists who used the plain for winter pasture at the mid-19th century. The people of Cilicia migrated to the mountains during the summer to beat the heat, graze their flocks, and avoid the risk of malaria in the marshy lowlands. Following the Crimean War, this ecology of transhumance began to change through the expansion of cotton cultivation, the arrival of tens of thousands of Muslims migrants, and the forced settlement of pastoralists. Wheat, cotton, and sesame took over the former swamps and pastures. Settlers grappled with epidemic malaria as they sought to make a living on a sparse, fertile, and uneven plain. The seasonal migrations of pastoralists slowly gave way to the seasonal migration of agricultural laborers. And the region's center of gravity drifted from the mountains to the plain
