    Anthropologist Dr Ad Borsboom, chair of Pacific Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen, devoted his academic career from 1972 onwards to the transmission of cultural knowledge.

  • Electrifying Europeby Vincent Lagendijk; Eric Venbrux; Dave Lyddon; Kurt Vandaele

    Amsterdam University Press 2009; US$ 39.95

    Nowadays most consumers are aware of the European dimensions of their electricity supply. But what ideas lie behind this European network? In constructing electricity networks, Europe performed a Janus-faced function. On the one hand, a European network would bolster economic growth and peace. On the other, economic growth through electrification... more...

    Amsterdam University Press 2009; US$ 34.95

    Since 1882, the Gotthard Railway, with its fifteen-kilometer long tunnel under the Gotthard Mountains, has provided a crucial international link through the Swiss Alps, between North-Western Europe and Italy. Its symbolic meaning has never sunk into oblivion. In Swiss society today, references to the railway evoke images of a technological railway... more...

  • Strikes around the worldby Sjaak van der Velden; Heiner Dribbusch; Dave Lyddon; Kurt Vandaele

    Amsterdam University Press 2008; US$ 59.95

    Are strikes going out of fashion or are they an inevitable feature of working life? This is a longstanding debate. The much-proclaimed 'withering away of the strike' in the 1950s was quickly overturned by the 'resurgence of class conflict' in the late 1960s and 1970s. The period since then has been characterized as one of 'labor... more...
