Claims to universality and charges of particularism
Philip Burton

to provide a constructivist history of this prolonged engagement, tracing the ways that jurists and diplomats invoked and attacked Calvo. The key objective of the study is to trace how participants sought to clothe their preferences in the language of universalism, while seeking to expose the particularist predilections of their rivals. This focus on the “historiographical

processes that these chapters describe, and how they affect international investment law. For instance, resistance against the regime (or system) may result in proposals for the development of alternative institutions. 57 Resistance within the regime (or system) may translate into refusal of policies and rules, 58 or attrition between participants in the regime, 59 or as defenses before investor–state arbitration tribunals. 60

come to make merry and most of the local inhabitants understand little of what the gentlemen have come to do’.4 We must count King Willem iii among ‘most of the local inhabitants’, as he had no interest whatsoever in the congress or its participants. In the monarchical states that had hosted previous congresses, members of the royal house had put in an appearance. Willem iii, known for his occasional breaches of decorum, had absolutely no desire to attend the statistical congress. The rules of international courtesy, though, required him to grant an audience.

experienced poor leadership.5 All the participants in the oral histories were white and all but two were women.6 Of the twenty participants, the earliest commencement date of training was 1942 and the latest was 1979. Approximately half returned to older adult nursing as either a registered nurse or as an enrolled nurse.7 Of those who did not return to older adult care, several remarked that they would never return. All the participants articulated a great concern for the older people in their care and disquiet over how the system, the medical staff and often the senior

more importantly for the theme of this volume, how do they tell the story of their own uprising against their commanders and their king? While some of these questions require further research, this chapter is a preliminary attempt to explore the ways in which participant soldiers imagined mutiny during the Eighty Years’ War by narrating it in epic verse. By focusing on one particular text depicting soldierly revolt, I aim to contribute to the study of the practices and imaginaries of early modern mutineers, their repertoires of collective action, and the tropes and

Politics: real, pursued, and promised

could shape the nation’s collective future and how they might do 232 in pursuit of politics so, establishing an institutional and conceptual nexus where competing futures could be imagined, articulated, and scrutinized. Thinking about the reform of education served a number of (sometimes overlapping) political and ideological functions during these years, as participants in the debates over education used descriptions of the schools – existing or anticipated – as microcosmic representations of French society and social relations, the state and political

The nurses’ role in wound management in civilian hospitals during the Second World War
David Justham

setting up and working within casualty clearing stations and field hospitals are reported with a minimum of detail. There are some descriptions of the multiple trauma and gross disfiguration that can follow bomb blast injuries, shrapnel wounds or close combat. The ways that nurses delivered care in civilian hospitals has been largely overlooked by historians of wartime nursing.13 This chapter outlines the memories of nurses in relation to wound care in civilian hospitals collected to examine nursing work before the availability of antibiotics. Participants commented on

readings of the exceptionally rich records from the Rothenburg witchtrials to explore the social and psychic tensions that lay behind the making of witchcraft accusations and confessions, the popular and elite reactions to these accusations and confessions, and the ways in which participants in witch-trials pursued strategies, expressed emotions and negotiated conflicts through what they said about witchcraft. These aims are important for various reasons. In 1996, Robin Briggs suggested that what was surprising about the early modern period was not how many people were

This chapter explores, from a senior participant observer perspective, the emergence of recent policy in infection control in Scotland, and the ways in which this differs in England. With specific reference to methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Escherichia coli ( E. coli ), it considers the reasons why policy and implementation can lag behind knowledge about infection control. It begins with an account from Scotland in 2002 which traces the following fifteen years during which infection control became a priority area for government

It is submitted that the corporate stakeholder and its interests are much more nuanced and diverse than the traditional conception of hostility between MNEs and the other systemic actors would suggest. Next, the chapter
