L’Empire ottoman et l’économie-monde capitaliste : quelques questionnements pour la recherche

À un certain moment de l’histoire, l’Empire ottoman se situait en dehors de l’économie-monde capitaliste. Plus tard, il a été intégré à l’économie-monde capitaliste. Comment pouvons-nous comprendre cette évolution, et les processus à travers lesquels cette transition de T1 à T2 s’est déroulée ? Je déclare d’emblée que je ne connais pas les réponses à ces questions. Je souhaite seulement suggérer des façons de procéder qui nous permettraient d’y répondre. 1 J’ai longuement développé ce paradigme dans The Modern World-System, New York, Academic Press, 197 (...) 2Toute réponse à une série de questions historiquement spécifiées présuppose un paradigme des structures sociales et du changement social. Un empire-monde et une économie-monde sont deux types de systèmes, très différents du point de vue de leurs économies, de leurs politiques et de leurs expressions culturelles.

Jared Kushner is wreaking havoc in the Middle East

The region was already teetering on the edge, but recent events have only made things worse. And while the mayhem should be apparent to any casual observer, what’s less obvious is Jared Kushner’s role in the chaos. Kushner is, of course, the US president’s senior advisor and son-in-law. The 36-year-old is a Harvard graduate who seems to have a hard time filling in forms correctly. He repeatedly failed to mention his meetings with foreign officials on his security clearance and neglected to report to US government officials that he was co-director of a foundation that raised money for Israeli settlements, considered illegal under international law. Days before Salman’s unprecedented move, Kushner was with the crown prince in Riyadh on an unannounced trip. But the Kushner-Salman alliance moves far beyond Riyadh. ISIS’s future will emerge from the Western metropolis.

La route de la soie - Edith Huyghe - Babelio

Avec un style agréable et en citant de nombreux passages de récits de voyages, notamment, les auteurs nous emmènent à la (re)découverte de certains personnages historiques : Gengis Khan ; Rubrouck ; Marco Polo ou encore Ibn Batouta, pour notre plus grand plaisir. Pour ceux et celles qui aimeraient approfondir certains thèmes, une bibliographie se trouve en fin d'ouvrage. Cependant, il n'y a qu'une seule carte qui n'est pas appropriée et incomplète. Elle couvre la péninsule arabique jusqu'à la côte Est de la Chine alors que les auteurs évoque la Turquie et surtout il manque certains toponymes comme Samarcande !

China's New Silk Road Initiative Will Boost the Global Economy

Silk Road Economic What is China’s belt and road initiative? OVER the weekend Xi Jinping welcomed 28 heads of state and government to Beijing for a coming-out party, which continues today, to celebrate the “belt and road” initiative, his most ambitious foreign policy.

What is China’s belt and road initiative?

Launched in 2013 as “one belt, one road”, it involves China underwriting billions of dollars of infrastructure investment in countries along the old Silk Road linking it with Europe. The ambition is immense. China is spending roughly $150bn a year in the 68 countries that have signed up to the scheme. The summit meeting (called a forum) has attracted the largest number of foreign dignitaries to Beijing since the Olympic Games in 2008. Yet few European leaders are showing up.

As Christopher Columbus set foot in the Caribbean Islands in October 1492, it marked the beginning of the end of the old world order and the start of the Atlantic era.

The Ottoman Empire and the Chinese Ming Dynasty were at their height at this point, commanding the trade in their respective Mediterranean and East Asian regions. Both of these old world empires were well-aware of this rapid development thanks to their legendary naval explorers, Barbaros Hayreddin and Zheng He, but were unwilling to join the Western civilized in their exploitation of the Americas. As a result, the millennial Silk Road lost its appeal as the Western explorers flocked to the resource-laden new found lands. Such reluctance has cost both these civilizations quite significantly, as both were eventually dominated severely by the rising European powers in the following centuries. Due to its geographical location, Istanbul will inevitably aim to be the major crossroad in this project between Europe and Asia. I. OBOR: China's Empowerment & Silk Road 2.0 (EXCLUSIVE) Investments flowing out of China are only getting more and more intense in every next news update.

It is by now no secret that the Chinese are on a global construction spree as they are getting hold of ports on the Mediterranean while moving bullet trains through Siberian steppes. Although, among all these headlines of billion dollar infrastructure contracts and thousand mile train rails through the Eurasian lands, a much more subtle yet highly critical story might be unfolding. At the time of writing, a history of empowerment could be in the process of being written in front of our eyes: The ambitious Silk Road project that was recently launched with the slogan “One Belt, One Road (OBOR)”. Empowerment, especially in this case, can be defined as granting someone the authority or power to achieve further. China's 21st Century Silk Road Project & Great Britain. Simply Google the phrase “Silk Road” for a second. You will come up with images of caravans strolling through vast deserts of Central Asia and many versions of maps which depict routes from East China all the way to Istanbul or Venice.

The recently emerging rhetoric of the post-modern Silk Road ― or China’s One Belt One Road initiative ― is also generally based upon those traditional routes that stretch through old world. The champion of the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, Chairman Xi Jinping, has been busy with an engaging international agenda of mutual state visits since the project’s announcement in 2014. China is rapidly strengthening its ties with nations within the span of the OBOR: Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Turkey and many more that make up the Eurasian economic corridor.

Yet, one state visit during October 2015 to London sticks out of the line-up. 1. “Connecting China’s less developed West to developed Europe presents exciting economic opportunities. 2.

Dispatchers in the Kazakh border town of Dostyk gave this train priority over all other traffic, including passenger trains. Specially trained guards rode on board. Later in the trip, as the train traveled across desolate Eurasian steppes, guards toting AK-47 military assault rifles boarded the locomotive to keep watch for bandits who might try to drive alongside and rob the train. Sometimes, the guards would even sit on top of the steel shipping containers. The train roughly follows the fabled Silk Road, the ancient route linking and Europe that was used to transport spices, gems and, of course, silks before falling into disuse six centuries ago.

Now the overland route is being resurrected for a new precious cargo: several million laptop computers and accessories made each year in China and bound for customers in European cities like London, Paris, Berlin and Rome. Riding the New Silk Road - Interactive Feature.
