              Understanding Tourism Mobilities in Japan (Hardback)

              The total number of foreign tourists received in countries throughout the world was 530 million in 1995. That number broke through the 1 billion mark for the first time in 2012, at 1,035,000,000. In 2015, it reached 1,180,000,000. According to Anthony Elliot and John Urry, modern... society has been characterized as being mobile, and within that we are also living mobile lives. In modern society, flows of people, things, capital, information, ideas and technologies are constantly being occurred, and as they are merging like a violently rushing stream, what could be termed a landscape of mobilities has appeared. Social realities are in flux and are changing into shapes that are different than those that existed before now. This volume will expand the inquiry of tourism mobilities comprehensively and clearly from the fields of humanities and social sciences. In particular, tourism mobilities has been actively investigated up to now in the UK, US, Europe and Australia, but even though the Japanese body of literature contains a great many excellent studies of Japanese examples, there are almost no English-language articles presenting their results. Publishing examples of Japanese tourism mobilities will not only foster new and exciting lines of inquiry for the existing and future research on tourism mobilities, but also have implications for humanities and social sciences throughout the world.

              Information Regimes During the Cold War in East Asia (Hardback)

              Morgan and his contributors develop the concept of the Information Regime as a way to understand the use, abuse, and control of information in East Asia during the Cold war period. During the Cold War, war itself was changing, as was statecraft. Information emerged as the most va...luable commodity, becoming the key component of societies across the globe. This was especially true in East Asia, where the military alliances forged in the wake of World War II were put to the most severe tests. These tests came in the form of adversarial relations between the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as pressures within their alliances, which eventually caused the People's Republic of China to break with from Moscow while Japan, for a time during the 1950s and 60s, seemed poised to move away from Washington. More important than military might, or economic influence, was the creation of information regimes - swaths of territory where a paradigm, ideology, or political arrangement obtained. Information regimes are not necessarily state-centric and many of the contributors to this book focus on examples which were not. Doing so allows us to see that the East Asian Cold War was not really cold at all, but was the epicentre of an active, contentious birth of information as the defining element of human interaction. A valuable resource for historians of East Asia and of developments in information management in the twentieth century.

              China's International Socialization of Political Elites in the Belt and Road Initiative (Hardback)

              This book argues that China's international socialization of the political elites of Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) partner states is an exceptionally effective instrument of China's current foreign policy. It shows how the BRI-related process of socialization generates shared be...liefs in the legitimacy and therefore in the acceptability of a Chinese international order among target elites and how in turn the policies and actions of states controlled by these elites tend to become aligned with the norms 'taught' by the Chinese socializer. It goes on to show how this serves the interests of China's government, firms, and citizens at national, regional, and global levels; and how the resulting increased support for Beijing's version of the international order creates a virtuous circle that further enhances China's international position and potential.

              Orthodoxy has achieved a large scale revival in Russia following the collapse of Communism. However, paradoxically, although there is a high level of identification with Orthodoxy, there is in fact a low level of church attendance. This book, based on in depth ethnographic fieldw...ork, explores the social background and moral attitudes of the little flock of believers who actively participate in religious life. It reveals that the complex moral beliefs of the faithful have a disproportionately high impact on Russian society overall; that among the faithful there is a strong emphasis on striving for personal perfection; but that also there are strong collective ideas concerning religious nationalism and the synergy between the secular and the religious.

              This book argues that the Russian thinker Petr Kropotkin's anarchism was a bio-political revolutionary project. It shows how Kropotkin drew on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century European and Russian biosocial-medical scientific thought to the extent that ideas about hea...lth, sickness, insanity, degeneration, and hygiene were for him not metaphors, but rather key political concerns. It goes on to discuss how for Kropotkin's bio-political anarchism the state, capitalism, and revolution were medical concerns whose effects on the individual and society were measurable by social statistics and explainable by biosocial-medical knowledge. Overall, the book provides a refreshing, innovative approach to understanding Kropotkin's anarchism.

              Why did large numbers of Scots leave a temperate climate to live permanently in parts of the world where greater temperature extreme was the norm? The long nineteenth century was a period consistently cooler than now, and Scotland remains the coldest of the British nations. Ninet...eenth-century meteorologists turned to environmental determinism to explain the persistence of agricultural shortage and to identify the atmospheric conditions that exacerbated the incidence of death and disease in the towns. In these cases, the logic of emigration and the benefits of an alternative climate were compelling. Emigration agents portrayed their favoured climate in order to pull migrants in their direction. The climate reasons, pressures and incentives that resulted in the movement of people have been neither straightforward nor uniform. There are known structural features that contextualize the migration experience, chief among them being economic and demographic factors. By building on the work of historical climatologists, and the availability of long-run climate data, for the first time the emigration history of Scotland is examined through the lens of the nation's climate. In significant per capita numbers, the Scots left the cold country behind; yet the 'homeland' remained an unbreakable connection for the diaspora.

              Involuntary Motion contributes to the study of refugee flight by using movement as a lens to explore problems in refugee performance and understand the experience of bodies in motion. Drawing from Somatics, Movement Analysis, and dance praxis, the chapters explore forces that set... bodies in motion; the spaces in which forced movement occurs; the movement of refugee identity arcs; the monstrosity of refugee performance; and the relationship between writing and body culture. How does forced movement impact identity? What are the philosophical implications of robbing agency over motion? What performances does involuntary motion necessitate? These questions are important as the world confronts the threat of a return of the horrors of the Twentieth Century. Bringing together debates in Migration Studies and Movement Studies, the book argues that refugees are akin to dancers performing on disappearing stages, not of their choosing. It will be of great interest to students and scholars of performance, dance and politics.

              The subject of the book is the food supply to Ancient Rome during the period from the early to the middle Empire when the city was at the peak of its power and population. The subject matter delves into the wider supply of goods, such as wood and building products, to add further... perspective to the breadth of the system managed by the Roman administration to ensure supply and political stability. The inclusion of losses as the products travelled to Rome from various points around the Mediterranean proves to be a critical differentiator between this and other studies. For example, it was likely that the wastage in the grain supply as it moved from the farmlands in North Africa and Egypt to Rome were as high as 55 per cent due to the extraordinary complexity of the systems in place. Such losses had a significant impact on the infrastructure and systems required to manage the flow of goods that was made more complex by the long transfer times. A product flow map is developed from the source of supply to the end consumer detailing the labour, equipment and infrastructure required at each stage and painting a graphic picture of just what an achievement it was for the administration to have maintained such a complex system over this long time period.

              Science, Utility and British Naval Technology, 1793-1815: Samuel Bentham and the Royal Dockyards (Hardback)

              During the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, the technology employed by the British navy changed not just the material resources of the British navy but the culture and performance of the royal dockyards. This book examines the role of the Inspector General of Naval Works..., an Admiralty office occupied by Samuel Bentham between 1796 and 1807, which initiated a range of changes in dockyard technology by the construction of experimental vessels, the introduction of non-recoil armament, the reconstruction of Portsmouth yard, and the introduction of steam-powered engines to pump water, drive mass-production machinery and reprocess copper sheathing. While primarily about the technology, this book also examines the complementary changes in the industrial culture of the dockyards. For it was that change in culture which permitted the dockyards at the end of the Wars to maintain a fleet of unprecedented size and engage in warfare both with the United States of America and with Napoleonic Europe.
