This is the first world history of empire, reaching from the third millennium BCE to the present. By combining synthetic surveys, thematic comparative essays, and numerous chapters on specific empires, its two volumes provide unparalleled coverage of imperialism throughout history and across continents, from Asia to Europe and from Africa to the Americas. Only a few decades ago empire was believed to be a thing of the past; now it is clear that it has been and remains one of the most enduring forms of political organization and power. We cannot understand the dynamics and resilience of empire without moving decisively beyond the study of individual cases or particular periods, such as the relatively short age of European colonialism. The history of empire, as these volumes amply demonstrate, needs to be drawn on the much broader canvas of global history. Volume I: The Imperial Experience is dedicated to synthesis and comparison. Following a comprehensive theoretical survey and bold world history synthesis, fifteen chapters analyze and explore the multifaceted experience of empire across cultures and through the ages. The broad range of perspectives includes: scale, world systems and geopolitics, military organization, political economy and elite formation, monumental display, law, mapping and registering, religion, literature, the politics of difference, resistance, energy transfers, ecology, memories, and the decline of empires. This broad set of topics is united by the central theme of power, examined under four headings: systems of power, cultures of power, disparities of power, and memory and decline. Taken together, these chapters offer a comprehensive and unique view of the imperial experience in world history.

The roots of the present ecological crisis, Foster argues, lie in capital's rapacious expansion, which has now achieved unprecedented heights of irrationality across the globe. Foster demonstrates that the only possible answer for humanity is an ecological revolution: a struggle to make peace with the planet. Foster details the beginnings of such a revolution in human relations with the environment which can now be found throughout the globe, especially in the periphery of the world system, where the most ambitious experiments are taking place.

Après Paramaribo en 1998 et la Havane en 1999, Cayenne a accueilli la conférence annuelle de l'Association des Historiens de la Caraïbe (AHC) du 16 au 20 avril 2000. L'AHC regroupe des historiens du bassin de la Caraïbe ainsi que des membres venant des universités et des organismes de recherche des Etats-Unis, du Canada, du Mexique, du Venezuela et du Brésil et de certaines universités de l'Union Européenne. Les trente-deux communications présentées ont été regroupées dans cet ouvrage. Un nombre significatif de communications a été consacré aux problématiques de l'histoire de la Guyane, le pays d'accueil. Dix intervenants ont ainsi traité des questions du peuplement et de la mise en valeur coloniale de la Guyane, des réactions politiques et identitaires liées à la pratique française de l'assimilation. Les questions abordées par ailleurs ont été rassemblées, dans les langues des intervenants, autour des thèmes suivants : criminalité et châtiments dans la Caraïbe ; la question de la nationalité aux Antilles françaises ; le traitement de l'environnement; la Caraïbe vue du Mexique; relations internationales et historiographie ; migrations transatlantiques et questions identitaires dans la Caraïbe britannique ; division sexuelle du travail et représentation de la sexualité. En dépit de l'obstacle linguistique que pourraient rencontrer certains lecteurs, les textes rassemblées ici donnent de la Caraïbe un éclairage diversifié rarement disponible dans les lieux accueillant le grand public.

With the environmental crisis comes a crisis of the imagination, a need to find new ways to understand nature and humanity's relation to it. This is the challenge Lawrence Buell takes up in The Environmental Imagination, the most ambitious study to date of how literature represents the natural environment. With Thoreau's Walden as a touchstone, Buell gives us a far-reaching account of environmental perception, the place of nature in the history of western thought, and the consequences for literary scholarship of attempting to imagine a more "ecocentric" way of being. In doing so, he provides a major new understanding of Thoreau's achievement and, at the same time, a profound rethinking of our literary and cultural reflections on nature. The green tradition in American writing commands Buell's special attention, particularly environmental nonfiction from colonial times to the present. In works by writers from Crevecoeur to Wendell Berry, John Muir to Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson to Leslie Silko, Mary Austin to Edward Abbey, he examines enduring environmental themes such as the dream of relinquishment, the personification of the nonhuman, an attentiveness to environmental cycles, a devotion to place, and a prophetic awareness of possible ecocatastrophe. At the center of this study we find an image of Walden as a quest for greater environmental awareness, an impetus and guide for Buell as he develops a new vision of environmental writing and seeks a new way of conceiving the relation between human imagination and environmental actuality in the age of industrialization. Intricate and challenging in its arguments, yet engagingly and elegantly written, The Environmental Imagination is a majorwork of scholarship, one that establishes a new basis for the reading of American nature writing.
