Besides looking at major outbreaks of diseases and how they were coped with, diseases such as malaria, smallpox, tuberculosis, plague, venereal disease, avian flu and SARS, this book also examines how the successive government regimes in Hong Kong took action to prevent diseases and control potential threats to health. It shows how policies impacted the various Chinese and non-Chinese groups, and how policies were often formulated as a result of negotiations between these different groups. By considering developments over a long historical period, the book contrasts the different approaches in the periods of colonial rule, Japanese occupation, post-war reconstruction, transition to decolonization, and Hong Kong as Special Administrative Region within the People’s Republic of China.

The end of Japan’s empire appeared to happen very suddenly and cleanly – but, as this book shows, it was in fact very messy, with a long period of establishing or re-establishing the postwar order. Moreover, as the authors argue, empires have afterlives, which, in the case of Japan’s empire, is not much studied. This book considers the details of deimperialization, including the repatriation of Japanese personnel, the redrawing of boundaries, issues to do with prisoners of war and war criminals and new arrangements for democratic political institutions, for media and for the regulation of trade. It also discusses the continuing impact of empire on the countries ruled or occupied by Japan, where, as a result of Japanese management and administration, both formal and informal, patterns of behavior and attitudes were established that continued subsequently. This was true in Japan itself, where returning imperial personnel had to be absorbed and adjustments made to imperial thinking, and in present-day East Asia, where the shadow of Japan’s empire still lingers. This legacy of unresolved issues concerning the correct relationship of Japan, an important, energetic, outgoing nation and a potential regional "hub," with the rest of the region not comfortably settled in this era, remains a fulcrum of regional dispute.

This book presents a wide range of new research on the Chinese treaty ports – the key strategic places on China’s coast where in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries various foreign powers controlled, through "unequal treaties", whole cities or parts of cities, outside the jurisdiction of the Chinese authorities. Topics covered include land and how it was acquired, the flow of people, good and information, specific individuals and families who typify life in the treaty ports, and technical advances, exploration, and innovation in government.

Nachdruck des Originals von 1904. Zwar wurde der Nobelpreistr ger Ilja Iljitsch Metschnikow (1845-1916; auch Elias Metschnikoff) vor allem durch seine naturwisschenschaftlichen Arbeiten - insbesondere die Entdeckung der Phagozytose - ber hmt, seine Arbeiten auf dem philosophischen Gebiet sind jedoch einem breiteren Publikum bekannt geworden. Hier insbesondere seine optimistische Philosophie, in der er auf der Basis seiner naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse den Menschen eine Zukunft voraussagt, in der sie einige der gro en Probleme wird l sen k nnen. Ein noch heute interessantes Buch als Kontrapunkt zu den vielfach verbreiteten pessimistischen Grund berzeugungen.

„Das Mädchen Kiêu" wird nicht nur wegen seiner fortschrittlichen Thematik eins der bewunderungswürdigsten Denkmäler vietnamesischer Dichtkunst bleiben. Wie kein zweiter hat es Nguyên Du verstanden, die volkstümliche vietnamesische Versschöpfung mit der gediegenen Kultur chinesischer Klassik zu verbinden. Seine literarischen Gemälde finden in der vietnamesischen Poesie nicht ihresgleichen. Die Frische eines Frühlingsspaziergangs, die Schrecknisse einer unheilvollen Nacht, die Empfindungen eines keuschen Mädchens, die niedrige Gier eines Bordellbesitzers — es gibt kein Bild, das die Feder des Dichters nicht mit vortrefflicher Leichtigkeit zeichnet. Die Geschichte der Thuy Kiêu ist ein nachahmenswertes Beispiel, wie die Sprache des Volkes zur vollendeten künstlerischen Aussage gelangen kann.
