example, made with such urgent clarity in 1984 by Paul Cohen, needs fresh nuance when official backing is given in contemporary China to the internationalised treaty port capitalism of the pre-1937 era. 6 The chapters that follow stem largely from broader research projects undertaken by their authors, all of whom are making use of the new materials we now have access to in their narratives.

Law and conflicts over water in the Krishna River Basin
Radha D’Souza

John M. MacKenzie

, at the Pier Head. As it happens, this was the era when modern studies of the connections between Liverpool and empire were really getting under way. It was a time when Francis Hyde, P. N. Davies, Gordon Jackson and, in a more popular vein, George Chandler were publishing their shipping and port histories. 1 Eric Williams had already produced his celebrated work, Capitalism

, growing class consciousness among the wider working class, signified that similar and common stimuli were in evidence in both countries. Yet in key ways the overall politico-economic structures and experiences of Australia and Britain were very different. For example, the early achievement of political democracy, combined with the more limited, uneven and less ‘transforming’ growth of industrial capitalism in Australia, 29 meant that, notwithstanding the defeats of the 1890s, the labour movement had the ‘nuts and bolts’ of its

Dakar’s ‘old city’ and beyond
Liora Bigon

, Saskia Sassen’s philosophical account sees a turning point in this historical period, which extends until the interwar years. This period, at the centre of our discussion, is characterised by the creation of a world-scale through the projection of national capitalism onto foreign geographic areas: through accelerated industrialisation, modernisation and underdevelopment; and through the multiplication of
