Brahman and untouchable : the transactional ranking of American geography departments by David Edward Sopher( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ranking of university geography departments based on hiring transactions is compared to the ranking of Indian village castes based on food transactions. Fifty-one geography departments were examined for the period 1960-1974 when 326 hiring transactions occurred. A study of caste ranking in a north Indian village by McKim Marriott and existing surveys of the academic standings of geography departments are used to demonstrate the relationship. Measures of department status, based on the production of Ph. D. graduates and journal articles written by department members, are reviewed and compared. An algorithm is described which ranks Ph. D. graduates according to their job placement in geography departments, and its results are compared with the other measures. Findings indicate that, as in the case of Indian castes where ranking is determined by food transactions, geography departments belong to a hierarchy based on personnel transactions. (ND)

In the shadows of the tropics : climate, race and biopower in nineteenth century Ceylon by James S Duncan( )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume investigates the transformation of Ceylon during the mid-nineteenth century into one of the most important coffee growing regions of the world and the consequent ecological disaster which erased coffee from the island." "Using this case study by way of illustration, this book reveals the spatial unevenness and fragmentation of modernity through a focus on modern governmentality and biopower. It argues that the practices of colonial power, and the differences that race and tropical climates were thought to make, were central to the working out of modern governmental rationalities." "Contributing an important rural focus to current work on studies of governmentality in geography, In the Shadows of the Tropics offers a welcome non-state dimension, with its emphasis on the role of the expanding plantation economy and the power of individual capitalists in the management of the lives and deaths of labourers, the destabilization of subsistence farming and the aggressive re-territorialization of populations from India to Ceylon. In this context, the usefulness of Foucault's notions of biopower, discipline and governmentality are examined."--Jacket
