The Myth of the Lazy Native is Syed Hussein Alatas’ widely acknowledged critique of the colonial construction of Malay, Filipino and Javanese natives from the 16th to the 20th century. Drawing on the work of Karl Mannheim and the sociology of knowledge, Alatas analyses the origins and functions of such myths in the creation and reinforcement of colonial ideology and capitalism. The book constitutes in his own words: ‘an effort to correct a one-sided colonial view of the Asian native and his society’ and will be of interest to students and scholars of colonialism, post-colonialism, sociology and South East Asian Studies.

Wir sind in einem Zeitalter angekommen, in dem der Mensch verschwinden könnte – und mit ihm die Welt, die er so gnadenlos ausbeutet. Denn was ist heute für uns nicht billig und schnell zu haben – auf Kosten der vielen Menschen, die weniger privilegiert sind als wir? Wir ruinieren unsere Erde, wenn wir nicht schleunigst kooperative Wege des Zusammenlebens und Wirtschaftens finden und den westlichen Raubtierkapitalismus bändigen. Das ist die Botschaft des Ökonomen Raj Patel und des Historikers Jason W. Moore. In sieben Kapiteln widmen sie sich jeweils einem Aspekt dieser Entwertung der Welt: Natur wird ebenso entwertet wie Geld, Arbeit, Pflege, Nahrung, Energie und Leben. So eindrücklich wie umfassend schildern sie, dass die Krisen unserer Zeit in Wirklichkeit eine einzige Krise sind und dass diese einen langen Vorlauf in der Geschichte hat. Wenn heute billige Arbeitskräfte billige Chlorhühnchen zu billigen Chickenwings verarbeiten, dann ist das, wie sie exemplarisch schildern, ein zerstörerisches Wirtschaftsprinzip, das sich über Jahrhunderte herausgebildet hat. Patel und Moore führen vor Augen, dass es an der Zeit ist, diese Entwicklung zu durchbrechen und unser Wirtschafts- und Sozialsystem anders zu denken, wenn wir unsere Welt verstehen und damit bewahren wollen.

The image of the pirate is at once spectral and ubiquitous. It haunts the imagination of international legal scholars, diplomats and statesmen involved in the war on terror. It returns in the headlines of international newspapers as an untimely ‘security threat’. It materializes on the most provincial cinematic screen and the most acclaimed works of fiction. It casts its shadow over the liquid spatiality of the Net, where cyber-activists, file-sharers and a large part of the global youth are condemned as pirates, often embracing that definition with pride rather than resentment. Today, the pirate remains a powerful political icon, embodying at once the persistent nightmare of an anomic wilderness at the fringe of civilization, and the fantasy of a possible anarchic freedom beyond the rigid norms of the state and of the market. And yet, what are the origins of this persistent ‘pirate myth’ in the Western political imagination? Can we trace the historical trajectory that has charged this ambiguous figure with the emotional, political and imaginary tensions that continue to characterize it? What can we learn from the history of piracy and the ways in which it intertwines with the history of imperialism and international trade? Drawing on international law, political theory, and popular literature, The Pirate Myth offers an authoritative genealogy of this immortal political and cultural icon, showing that the history of piracy – the different ways in which pirates have been used, outlawed and suppressed by the major global powers, but also fantasized, imagined and romanticised by popular culture – can shed unexpected light on the different forms of violence that remain at the basis of our contemporary global order.
