History & Mathematics: Political Demography Global Ageing. Yearbook


Among different important issues, which are discussed in Political Demography the issue of global ageing becomes more and more pressing every year. It is sufficient to take into account the point that within two forthcoming decades a rapid global increase in the number of retirement-age persons will lead to its doubling within this fairly small historical period. The concerns about population ageing apply to both developed and many developing countries and it has turned into a global issue. In forthcoming decades the population ageing is likely to become one of the most important processes determining the future society characteristics and the direction of technological development. The present volume of the Yearbook (which is the fifth in the series) is subtitled Political Demography & Global Ageing. It brings together a number of interesting articles by scholars from Europe, Asia, and America. They examine global ageing from a variety of perspectives. This issue of the Yearbook consists of two main sections: (I) Aspects of Political Demography; (II) Facing Population Ageing. We hope that this issue will be interesting and useful both for historians and mathematicians, as well as for all those dealing with various social and natural sciences.

Globalistics and Globalization Studies: Big History & Global


This yearbook is the fourth in the series with the title Globalistics and Globalization Studies. The subtitle of the present volume is Global History & Big History. The point is that today our global world really demands global knowledge. Thus, there are a few actively developing multidisciplinary approaches and integral disciplines among which one can name Global Studies, Global History and Big History. They all provide a connection between the past, present, and future. Big History with its vast and extremely heterogeneous field of research encompasses all the forms of existence and all timescales and brings together constantly updated information from the scientific disciplines and the humanities. Global History is transnational or world history which examines history from a global perspective, making a wide use of comparative history and of the history of multiple cultures and nations. Global Studies express the view of systemic and epistemological unity of global processes. Thus, one may argue that Global Studies and Globalistics can well be combined with Global History and Big History and such a multi-disciplinary approach can open wide horizons for the modern university education as it helps to form a global view of various processes.

Гринин Леонид Ефимович History & Mathematics: Economy, Demography, Culture, and Cosmic Civilizations. Yearbook


The present Yearbook (which is the sixth in the series) is subtitled Economy, Demography, Culture, and Cosmic Civilizations. To some extent it reveals the extraordinary potential of scientific research. The common feature of all our Yearbooks, including the present volume, is the usage of formal methods and social studies methods in their synthesis to analyze different phenomena. In other words, if to borrow Alexander Pushkins words, to verify the algebra with harmony. One should note that publishing in a single collection the articles that apply mathematical methods to the study of various epochs and scales - from deep historical reconstruction to the pressing problems of the modern world - reflects our approach to the selection of contributions for the Yearbook. History and Mathematics, Social Studies and formal methods, as previously noted, can bring nontrivial results in the studies of different spheres and epochs. This issue consists of three main sections: (I) Historical and Technological Dimensions includes two papers (the first is about the connection between genes, myths and waves of the peopling of Americas; the second one is devoted to quantitative analysis of innovative activity and competition in technological sphere in the Middle Ages and Modern Period); (II) Economic and Cultural Dimensions (the contributions are mostly focused on modern period); (III) Modeling and Theories includes two papers with interesting models (the first one concerns modeling punctuated equilibria apparent in the macropattern of urbanization over time; in the second one the author attempts to estimate the number of Communicative Civilizations). We hope that this issue will be interesting and useful both for historians and mathematicians, as well as for all those dealing with various social and natural sciences.

World of Populations. Transnational Perspectives on Demography in the Twentieth Century


Demographic study and the idea of a “population” was developed and modified over the course of the twentieth century, mirroring the political, social, and cultural situations and aspirations of different societies. This growing field adapted itself to specific policy concerns and was therefore never apolitical, despite the protestations of practitioners that demography was “natural.” Demographics were transformed into public policies that shaped family planning, population growth, medical practice, and environmental conservation. While covering a variety of regions and time periods, the essays in this book share an interest in the transnational dynamics of emerging demographic discourses and practices. Together, they present a global picture of the history of demographic knowledge.

Critical Mathematics Education. Theory, Praxis, and Reality


A volume in Cognition, Equity, & Society: International PerspectivesSeries Editors: Bharath Sriraman, University of Montanaand Lyn English, Queensland University of TechnologyMathematics is traditionally seen as the most neutral of disciplines, the furthest removed from the argumentsand controversy of politics and social life. However, critical mathematics challenges these assumptions andactively attacks the idea that mathematics is pure, objective, and value‐neutral. It argues that history, society,and politics have shaped mathematics-not only through its applications and uses but also through molding its concepts, methods, and evenmathematical truth and proof, the very means of establishing truth. Critical mathematics education also attacks the neutrality of the teaching andlearning of mathematics, showing how these are value‐laden activities indissolubly linked to social and political life. Instead, it argues that the valuesof openness, dialogicality, criticality towards received opinion, empowerment of the learner, and social/political engagement and citizenship arenecessary dimensions of the teaching and learning of mathematics, if it is to contribute towards democracy and social justice.This book draws together critical theoretic contributions on mathematics and mathematics education from leading researchers in the field.Recurring themes include: The natures of mathematics and critical mathematics education, issues of epistemology and ethics; Ideology, thehegemony o...

Grinin Leonid E. Globalistics and Globalization Studies. Global Transformations Future. Yearbook


The present volume is the fifth in the series of yearbooks with the title Globalistics and Globalization Studies. The subtitle of the present volume is Global Transformations and Global Future. We become more and more accustomed to think globally and to see global processes. And our future can all means be global. However, is this statement justified? Indeed, in recent years, many have begun to claim that globalization has stalled, that we are rather dealing with the process of anti-globalization. Will not we find ourselves at some point again in an edifice spanning across the globe, but divided into national apartments, separated by walls of high tariffs and mutual suspicion? Of course, some setbacks are always possible, because the process of globalization cannot develop smoothly. It is a process which is itself emerging from contradictions and is shaped by a new contradiction. They often go much further than underlying systemic changes allow. They break forward, as the vanguard of a victorious army, and then often meet resistance of various social and political forces and may suddenly start to roll back just at the moment when everyone expects their further offensive. We believe that this is what is happening with globalization at present. The yearbook will be interesting to a wide range of researchers, teachers, students and all those who are concerned about global issues.

The Hard Road to Reform. the Politics of Z Global Political Agreement


The defeat of ZANU-PF in the 2008 parliamentary election marked the end of one-party rule in Zimbabwe. The Global Political Agreement signed later that resulted in a Government of National Unity, and the former ruling party was, for the first time, faced with the reality of sharing power. The Hard Road to Reform presents a penetrating analysis of developments since the GNU was established, reviewing recent political history from a range of perspectives - political, economic, social and historical, and featuring the best work of Zimbabwe's young scholars. As Brian Raftopolos writes in his introduction: 'the book is an attempt to analyse and assess both the hopes and frustrations of the last four years and to confront the harsh challenges that lie ahead.'

Noel Cowen Global History. A Short Overview


This short book offers a clear and engaging introduction to the history of humankind, from the earliest movements of people to the contemporary epoch of globalization. Cowen traces this complex history in a manner which offers both a compelling narrative and an analytical and comparative treatment. Drawing on a new perspective on global history, he traces the intersection of change in economics, politics and human beliefs, examining the formation, enlargement and limits of human societies. Global History shows how much of human history encompasses three intersecting forces – trading networks, expanding political empires and crusading creeds. Abandoning the limits of a Eurocentric view of the world, the book offers a number of fresh insights. Its periodization embraces movement across continents and across the millennia. The indigenous American civilizations are included, for instance. The book also ranges over the early civilizations of China and Europe as well as the Russian and Islamic worlds. Modern American and Japanese civilizations are, in addition, a focus for attention. The author examines national and regional histories in relation to wider themes, sequences and global tendencies. In conclusion, he seeks to address the question of the extent to which a global society is beginning to crystallize.

Indigenous Peoples and Demography. The Complex Relation Between Identity Statistics


When researchers want to study indigenous populations they are dependent upon the highly variable way in which states or territories enumerate, categorise and differentiate indigenous people. In this volume, anthropologists, historians, demographers and sociologists have come together for the first time to examine the historical and contemporary construct of indigenous people in a number of fascinating geographical contexts around the world, including Canada, the United States, Colombia, Russia, Scandinavia, the Balkans and Australia. Using historical and demographical evidence, the contributors explore the creation and validity of categories for enumerating indigenous populations, the use and misuse of ethnic markers, micro-demographic investigations, and demographic databases, and thereby show how the situation varies substantially between countries.Per Axelsson is a Senior Researcher of the Centre for Sami Research at Umeå University, Sweden. His research interests and recent publications focus on indigenous demography, the medical history and historical demography of the Sami and the settlers in northern Sweden during the time of colonization and also the history of polio during the twentieth century. He co-chairs the network of Family/Demography within the European Social Science History Association.Peter Sköld is Professor of History at Umeå University and Director of the Centre for Sami Research.

History Wars and the Classroom. Global Perspectives


ABOUT THE BOOKThe book is entitled History Wars and the Classroom: Global Perspectives and examines how ten separate countries have experienced debates and disputes over the contested nature of the subject, for example the ‘Black Armband’ and ‘Whitewash’ factions in Australia who adopt opposingly celebratory or denigratory views of Australian history, especially when evaluating episodes of poor racial relations. There are also tensions between traditional/patriotic views of history teaching and reformed or ‘new’ history. There are issues of political control of the curriculum and parallel issues of who writes it (very topical in England at the moment over two expat ‘big picture’ historians who work at Harvard and Columbia (Niall Ferguson and Simon Schama)).ENDORSEMENTS:“An important collection for anyone seeking to understand the incendiary nature of the history curriculum across the globe.” Sam Wineburg, Margaret Jacks Professor of Education and History, Stanford University, USA.“A powerfully and impressively wide-ranging collection of essays, which vividly remind usthat the debates on the teaching of history are global rather than merely national”.Sir David Cannadine, Dodge Professor of History, Princeton University, USA.

Friedrich List National System of Political Economy. The History (Three Volumes in One)


Friedrich List was one of the most prominent economic philosophers of the 19th century, on a par with-but espousing quite different thinking than-Karl Marx and Adam Smith. In the three-volume National System of Political Economy, he explores a reasoned doctrine of national and pan-national management of trade, a global collaboration between government and business. Presented here in one combined volume, List examines the pronounced influence of freedom prudently balanced with regulation in the economic histories of the nations of Europe and North America, delineates his theory of supportive interconnectedness, and explores the economic and political systems that nurture ascendant nations in their global sovereignty. A close reading of this 1841 classic is an absolute necessity for anyone who hopes to understand world economic history of the last 150 years.German economist and journalist FRIEDRICH LIST (1789-1846) served as professor of administration and politics at the University of Tübingen, but was jailed and later exiled to America for his political views. He is also the author of Outlines of American Political Economy (1827).
