Geographical diversions [Texte imprimé] : Tibetan trade, global transactions /

de Harris, Tina (aut.)
Collation: 1 vol. (xv-189 p.) : couv. ill. en coul., ill., cartes. ; 23 cm. Collection: Geographies of justice and social transformation Édition: Athens and London : University of Georgia Press, cop. 2013.ISBN: 9780820338668 (rel); 0820338664 (rel); 9780820345123 (br); 0820345121 (br).Contenu: "Working at the intersections of cultural anthropology, human geography, and material culture, Tina Harris explores the social and economic transformations taking place along one trade route that winds its way across China, Nepal, Tibet, and India. How might we make connections between seemingly mundane daily life and more abstract levels of global change? Geographical Diversions focuses on two generations of traders who exchange goods such as sheep wool, pang gdan aprons, and more recently, household appliances. Exploring how traders "make places," Harris examines the creation of geographies of trade that work against state ideas of what trade routes should look like. She argues that the tensions between the apparent fixity of national boundaries and the mobility of local individuals around such restrictions are precisely how routes and histories of trade are produced. The economic rise of China and India has received attention from the international media, but the effects of major new infrastructure at the intersecting borderlands of these nationstates--in places like Tibet, northern India, and Nepal--have rarely been covered. Geographical Diversions challenges globalization theories based on bounded conceptions of nation-states and offers a smaller-scale perspective that differs from many theories of macroscale economic change."-- Publisher's website.Table des matières / Sommaire: Introduction : Tibet, trade, and territoryMiddlemen, marketplaces, and mapsFrom loom to machineSilk roads and wool routesReopenings and restrictionsNew economic geographiesMobility and fixitySujet RAMEAU: Ethnologie Chine Tibet (Chine) | Commerce Chine Tibet (Chine) | Pastoralisme Chine Tibet (Chine) | Géographie humaine Chine Tibet (Chine) | Ethnology China Tibet Autonomous Region | Commerce China Tibet Autonomous Region | Sheepherding Economic aspects China Tibet Autonomous Region | Human geography China Tibet Autonomous RegionSujet géographique RAMEAU: Tibet (Chine) Frontières | Tibet (Chine) Conditions économiques | Tibet Autonomous Region (China) Boundaries | Tibet Autonomous Region (China) Economic conditions | Himalaja Ost | TibetThématique: Economie | GéographieThématique spécifique: Espace | Commerce transfrontalier | Laine | Marchand | Frontières | Géographie humaine | Route commercialeGéographique: Népal | Sikkim | TibetType de document: OuvrageLangue du document: anglaisPays d'édition: Grèce, Royaume-Uni de Grande-Bretagne et d'Irlande du Nord
