"This book furthers discussion of a topic that is inadequately addressed but of paramount importance to the U.S. Navy, and of great interest to Naval Institute members: what quality and quantity of ships can China supply its navy with, today and over the next fifteen years?"--Provided by publisher.

중국의 실체를 파악하기 위한 36가지 날카로운 질문들 하버드대학이 시진핑의 중국을 진단하다 중국은 늘 중요했고, 앞으로도 그럴 것이다. 중국을 언급하지 않고 21세기의 정치·경제적 전망을 논한다는 것은 불가능하다. 하지만 정보가 넘쳐흐르는 시대임에도 중국에 대한 제대로 된 정보를 접하기는 어렵다. 주로 눈에 띄거나 충격적인 사건에만 초점을 맞추고 있기 때문이다. 중국의 대표 매체인 관영 언론을 통해 주요 정보를 접하게 되는 것도 문제다. 지난 60년간 중국에 대해 가장 현실적이고 정확한 분석을 해온 것으로 정평이 난 하버드대학 중국연구소가 그간의 성과물을 집대성해낸 것도 그런 까닭이다. 정치, 경제, 국제 관계 등 각 분야별 석학들이 중국을 둘러싼 핵심 쟁점들을 36가지 질문 형식으로 제시한다. 이 책의 필진들은 시진핑의 장기 집권 전략, 중국의 해상 영유권 분쟁, 중국 경제 성장의 둔화, 동아시아에서의 군사‧외교적 역학관계 등 중국을 둘러싼 모든 문제들에 주목한다. 특히 중국의 과거, 현재, 미래를 넘나드는 유기적이고 입체적인 분석을 통해 중국에 대한 선입견을 걷어내고 ‘실제’ 중국의 모습을 정확하게 진단할 수 있게끔 해준다. 날카로운 질문과 그에 대한 정확한 해석을 따라가다 보면, 지금 중국이 어떤 나라인지, 앞으로 중국이 어떤 방향으로 나아갈지 보다 분명하게 이해할 수 있을 것이다.

«‹Eine neue Geschichte der Welt› – dieses Buch verdient den Titel voll und ganz.» Peter Frankopan lehrt uns, die Geschichte neu zu sehen – indem er nicht Europa, sondern den Nahen und Mittleren Osten zum Ausgangspunkt macht. Hier entstanden die ersten Hochkulturen und alle drei monotheistischen Weltreligionen; ein Reichtum an Gütern, Kultur und Wissen, der das Alte Europa seit jeher sehnsüchtig nach Osten blicken ließ. Frankopan erzählt von Alexander dem Großen, der Babylon zur Hauptstadt seines neuen Weltreichs machen wollte; von Seide, Porzellan und Techniken wie der Papierherstellung, die über die Handelswege der Region Verbreitung fanden; vom Sklavenhandel mit der islamischen Welt, der Venedig im Mittelalter zum Aufstieg verhalf; von islamischen Gelehrten, die das antike Kulturerbe pflegten, lange bevor Europa die Renaissance erlebte; von der Erschließung der Rohstoffe im 19. Jahrhundert bis hin zum Nahostkonflikt. Schließlich erklärt Frankopan, warum sich die Weltpolitik noch heute in Staaten wie Syrien, Afghanistan und Irak entscheidet. Peter Frankopan schlägt einen weiten Bogen, und das nicht nur zeitlich: Er rückt zwei Welten zusammen, Orient und Okzident, die historisch viel enger miteinander verbunden sind, als wir glauben. Ein so fundiertes wie packend erzähltes Geschichtswerk, das wahrhaft die Augen öffnet.

Beschreibung: This book is a collection of papers in which cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) is used to study science, technology and innovations. In the 16 chapters of the book an activity theoretical approach is developed through dialogue with the relevant theoretical approaches of science and technology studies, such as actor network theory, symbolic interactionism and Knorr-Cetinas's theory of objectual cultural practice. The book has three parts. The first one comprises empirical studies on creativity and change in research work and innovations. The cases studied include research groups in analytical chemistry, aerosol physics, biotechnology as well as innovations in medical technology by research-based firms. In making sense of the distributed creation, CHAT is put in dialogue with the systemic view of psychology of creativity, the systemic approach in history of technology as well as sociological theories of creativity. The second part compares systematically the similarities and differences between Deweyan pragmatism and CHAT, and shows how they can be used in a complementary way in empirical research. The third part evaluates actor network theory, constructivist conceptions of learning as well as the concept of routine largely used in organizational studies from the position of CHAT. In addition the concept 'object of activity' central in activity theory is discussed and elaborated in two chapters. The autor: Reijo Miettinen is Professor of Adult Education in the University of Helsinki and he was Vice director of the Center for Activity Theory and Developmental Work Research in 1995-2007.
