The story underlying this ethnography began with the recent discovery and commercialization of the remnant of an ancient �queendom� on the Sichuan-Tibet border. Recorded in classical Chinese texts, this legendary matriarchal domain has attracted not only tourists but the vigilance of the Chinese state. Tenzin Jinba�s research examines the consequences of development of the queendom label for local ethnic, gender, and political identities and for state-society relations.

Dieser Band betrachtet die Verflechtung von Infrastruktur und Mobilitätstechnologien mit dem Alltag tibetischer Nomaden. Anhand von detailreichen ethnografischem Material beschreibt die Autorin, in welcher Weise Nomaden des tibetischen Hochlands mobile Technologien wie Motorräder, Autos und Mobiltelefone nutzen. Alltagspraktiken der Mobilkommunikation und der motorisierten Mobilität führen zu einer Translokalität, welche nomadische Akteure in Urbanisierungsprozesse Chinas implizieren, die seit der Jahrtausendwende auch Ost- und Nordosttibet verändern. Das Buch beleuchtet damit bislang kaum untersuchte Aspekte des Wandels in einer tibetischen Region und schlägt eine Brücke zu gesellschaftspolitischen Fragen der Urbanisierung und Technisierung der Gesellschaft. Eine fundierte Auseinandersetzung mit aktuellen theoretischen und methodischen Konzepten zu mobilen Technologien und Mobilität macht das Buch über die Asienwissenschaft hinaus auch für die vergleichenden Sozial- u. Kommunikationswissenschaften interessant.

Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions

David Quammen's book, The Song of the Dodo, is a brilliant, stirring work, breathtaking in its scope, far-reaching in its message -- a crucial book in precarious times, which radically alters the way in which we understand the natural world and our place in that world. It's also a book full of entertainment and wonders. In The Song of the Dodo, we follow Quammen's keen intellect through the ideas, theories, and experiments of prominent naturalists of the last two centuries. We trail after him as he travels the world, tracking the subject of island biogeography, which encompasses nothing less than the study of the origin and extinction of all species. Why is this island idea so important? Because islands are where species most commonly go extinct -- and because, as Quammen points out, we live in an age when all of Earth's landscapes are being chopped into island-like fragments by human activity. Through his eyes, we glimpse the nature of evolution and extinction, and in so doing come to understand the monumental diversity of our planet, and the importance of preserving its wild landscapes, animals, and plants. We also meet some fascinating human characters. By the book's end we are wiser, and more deeply concerned, but Quammen leaves us with a message of excitement and hope.
