Estrace Vaginal Cream For Sale

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 12:45 pm

Robert Farley's article on Japan's WWII Counter-Insurgency planning and implementation Estrace Vaginal Cream For Sale, begs the question of whether COIN, as it's called now, was a strategy or a tactic. (Though it also illustrates something I'd like to see more of: blogging on journal articles and book chapters, is Estrace Vaginal Cream addictive. Estrace Vaginal Cream from canada, Yes, I should do more of that, online buying Estrace Vaginal Cream hcl, Estrace Vaginal Cream schedule, too.) Farley says

[retired Japan Ground Self-Defense Force (GSDF) Lieutenant General Noboru] Yamaguchi suggests that elements of the Japanese Army and a variety of hybrid civil-military organizations took the problem of COIN quite seriously from a strategic point of view, appreciating that the only way to victory in China was the establishment of a self-sustaining, taking Estrace Vaginal Cream, Estrace Vaginal Cream used for, pro-Japanese Chinese government.

Farley goes on to cite some examples, but he also notes some of the atrocities associated with the Japanese military in China (and elsewhere), purchase Estrace Vaginal Cream online no prescription, Estrace Vaginal Cream reviews, and also that resources for "hearts and minds" operations were decidedly lacking. Comfort Women are notably missing, Estrace Vaginal Cream use, Generic Estrace Vaginal Cream, which is too bad: it's a fantastic example of an attempt to solve the "hearts and minds" problem that goes horribly wrong.


But what struck me about the discussion is the use of the term "strategy", my Estrace Vaginal Cream experience, Buy no prescription Estrace Vaginal Cream online, which suggests a substantial goal, guiding tactics and training, order Estrace Vaginal Cream no prescription. I don't doubt that there were Japanese who saw the necessity of developing real ties with China, building relationships, any more than I doubt that some Japanese authentically believed the pan-Asianism which underlay the rhetoric of the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere, Estrace Vaginal Cream For Sale. Estrace Vaginal Cream canada, mexico, india, What I don't believe is that Japanese military, political or economic leaders were at all serious about the GEACPS, is Estrace Vaginal Cream safe, Estrace Vaginal Cream overnight, or that pan-Asianism was more than a theoretical and rhetorical fig leaf for aggressive imperialism. And I don't believe that "hearts and minds" COIN really rose to the level of "strategy": military training and tactics routinely ignored priorities beyond raw domination and control, purchase Estrace Vaginal Cream for sale. About Estrace Vaginal Cream, Farley's right that resource issues and circumstances mitigated against long-term relationship-building, and our colleague Konrad Lawson has been doing fascinating work on Chinese who did develop strategic alliances with Japanese occupiers, Estrace Vaginal Cream from mexico. Estrace Vaginal Cream no rx, But just as Manchukuo illustrates the hollowness of Japanese claims to support Chinese autonomy, the realities of the battlefield and occupation make it clear that winning over Chinese support was far from a serious strategic consideration, Estrace Vaginal Cream forum.

Estrace Vaginal Cream For Sale, That said, I was also struck by a comment on the article from one "John Chan"

Japan is an unapologetic war criminal; Yamaguchi’s quote is the tip of iceberg of how Japanese systematically white wash their war crimes and gloss over their atrocities. Cheap Estrace Vaginal Cream no rx, Thru history Japanese are pirates; barbarism, deceitfulness, Estrace Vaginal Cream natural, After Estrace Vaginal Cream, and brutality are their way of life. Using atrocity to overcome any resistance is their default choice of action; the conformity nature of the Japanese makes them particular wicked, Estrace Vaginal Cream cost, Buy cheap Estrace Vaginal Cream no rx, they will compete in cruelty as an honour, it makes Yamaguchi’s quote about Japanese COIN theory an outright shameless lie and evidence of Japanese has no remorse about its war crimes.

This is not, get Estrace Vaginal Cream, Canada, mexico, india, as I understand it, an uncommon view of Japan from a Chinese mainland perspective, Estrace Vaginal Cream description. Estrace Vaginal Cream australia, uk, us, usa, The historiographical accusation is a familiar one -- Japan has a long history of denying, downplaying, Estrace Vaginal Cream dosage, Comprar en línea Estrace Vaginal Cream, comprar Estrace Vaginal Cream baratos, ignoring, and justifying modern atrocities which is rivaled only by a few other countries (( China's official amnesia regarding the Great Leap Forward Famine and Cultural Revolution purges; America's denial that westward expansion was imperialist and effectively genocidal; the rehabilitation of Stalin in Russian historical memory; etc, kjøpe Estrace Vaginal Cream på nett, köpa Estrace Vaginal Cream online. Estrace Vaginal Cream samples, )) -- but the idea of wartime Japan as an authentic representation of Japan's essential historical character is something I hadn't seen before. (( and obviously, buy Estrace Vaginal Cream online cod, Estrace Vaginal Cream online cod, not something I think is historically or culturally supportable as a thesis )) Connecting the wako pirates (I assume that's what he means) to WWII is an historical and cultural stretch that boggles the historical imagination. But if you're looking at Japan solely through the lens of Chinese victimization, purchase Estrace Vaginal Cream, Estrace Vaginal Cream trusted pharmacy reviews, perhaps it's not as much of a leap as all that.

Reconsidering Marco Polo

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 1:07 am

"Marco Polo’s reports of China, now judged mostly hearsay...." Perry Anderson, LRB

MMA 2012 - China - Tang - late 7c - Camel and RidersI got an email from a student who found my blog post in which I make a highly critical case regarding the historicity of Marco Polo's adventures. They wanted to confirm (since some data was lost in the latest HNN transition) that it was mine for citation purposes. I've been considering revisiting it for a while now, (( You can tell by the dates on the articles linked here, this has been in draft for quite a while )) and this seems like a good time, because my views on the subject have evolved a bit since: I'm still highly skeptical of Polo, but more importantly, I think the very structure of the argument and nature of the sources makes it highly unlikely that the believers and skeptics will come to a consensus. When I expressed my doubts, lo those many years ago, I was informed that there was still some life left in Polo's tale. It turns out that there is so much scholarship on aspects of Polo's text that there's even a term for it -- "Polan scholarship" and if there's one thing Polan scholars can't stand, it's to have Polo's work seriously questioned. All the errors are "honest"; all the omissions are "explicable"; all the unconfirmed and untranslated stuff are just waiting to be decoded if only we had better Chinese sources; and incomprehensible bits are the result of Polo listening to the wrong people. That's the attitude going in, and it's the same attitude coming out. (( there's a lot of emotion in Polan defenses, though if I'd made a life's work on a complex source and found a lot of scholars who hadn't attacking it as fraudulent, I might be emotional about it as well )) There seem to be lots of Euro-centric scholars with strong attachments to Polo, but a lot of Sino-centric scholars were very dubious. (( E.g. Obituary of John Larner, historian of Marco Polo. And "New archeological data highlights Polo errors." )) Foreigners were involved in Qin construction, and travel in China was common and widespread: the idea that China was closed or that people never migrated are both vestiges of simplistic thinking rather than historical verities. Even the harshest critics of Polo's historicity admit that he got some thing right, and must have had some valid sources. The question is whether he was an eyewitness and participant in the history and culture he described, and, most importantly, whether he can be considered a credible independent source for the study of Chinese history and culture. I think the answer is still "no." The story is great, but even if you take it seriously, it's fantastical. ((WaPo review of new Polo bio)) Still, having entered this fray, I feel an intellectual obligation to stay informed. So when I ran across a catalog blurb for Stephen Haw's Marco Polo's China: a Venetian in the realm of Khubilai Khan (Routledge, 2006), it piqued my interest; thanks to inter-library loan, I finally got hold of it. Only for a week, unfortunately, but it was an interesting ride. Haw's work is mostly about details: linguistic, biological and cultural details which jibe with Yuan China and particularly those which seem to be based most firmly on observation instead of second-hand transmission. At times the argument feels stretched, linguistically and zoologically, and the disjunction between the evidence and the conclusions is consistent throughout. Unfortunately, Haw relies heavily on de Rachewiltz's pro-Polo arguments on authenticity, and then goes well beyond it. Essentially, everything that Polo gets right, especially if he gets it just a little bit wrong, proves his story; Polo is never an unreliable narrator, except where he's been given bad information.
It has very commonly been said that Marco exaggerates in his descriptions of the Yuan empire and other places. This is only partly true. Frequently, his account is entirely accurate....His description of Hangzhou is very largely confirmed by Chinese sources. Where obvious exaggerations do occur, it is usually very likely that they reflect information that had been given to Marco by others, rather than his own tendency to overstatement.

The hedging and dodging here is then followed up by a remarkable strawman argument, an attack on a reductio version of Polo criticism that I've never heard anyone offer. The fact that Polo got a fair bit right proves that he wasn't lying about anything, because he could have just made the whole story up. But there aren't any critics who think Polo made it all up; most Polo critics argue that he plagiarized large portions of his descriptions, and inserted himself into the story in the most dramatic and self-gratifying way he thought plausible. This is a long quotation, yes, but I want Haw's whole argument visible; I don't want people to think I'm creating a straw man from his claims:

If Marco had wished to exaggerate wildly, whether in relation to his own position in the empire of the Great Khan, or in his description of the East, he could very easily have done so. How many people in Europe at the time could have contradicted him, whatever he had put in his book? Apart from his father and uncle, there were very few indeed who had travelled so extensively, or spent so long, in the eastern half of Asia. His relatives might have been persuaded not to expose any false claims, so as not to shame the family. If Marco had wanted to lie, to invent for himself a false position as an important servant of Khubilai Khan, a life of glory in the Far East, then he could have said virtually anything he wanted. There was no reason at all for him to try to be more than minimally accurate, to include just enough truth in his story to make it more or less credible. The fact that most of his account is, on the contrary, demonstrably truthful and correct is a very strong argument in favour of Marco's general veracity. He was far more truthful than he needed to be. Again, if Marco had invented the whole story of his journey to the East and his sojourn in the empire of Khubilai Khan, it is extremely unlikely that he could have avoided making numerous obvious mistakes. In particular, if he had obtained his information at second hand, without ever visiting China, then it would surely have been almost impossible for him to have avoided glaring anachronisms. It would have taken time to amass such a volume of information, much of which might well have been out of date by the time it reached Marco. If his information had come from more than one source, then it would probably have related to somewhat different periods of time which, without any personal knowledge of the true situation, he could not have reconciled successfully. It is very striking, however, that Marco's accounts of his journeys and of the Yuan empire are exactly right for the period. It has already been pointed out several times in this book that Marco shows accurate knowledge of events and situations that came to pass at exactly the time that he was in the Far East, sometimes only a few years before his return to Venice. It is extremely unlikely that he could have obtained such correct and up-to-date information except by personal observation. Some one and a half centuries after Marco's time, Nicolo de' Conti travelled at least as far to the east as Myanmar. Yet the information that he was able to collect about China was minimal and highly inaccurate. Although the Mongols had been driven from China more than half a century earlier, he stated that the ruler of Cathay was 'the Great Khan'. He seems to have had some vague information about the change of capital city to Nanjing during the early Ming dynasty, but still called the chief city 'Cambalec' (Poggio and Ludovico 1963: 17-18). If this is typical of what could be discovered about China from as near as South-east Asia, then it would surely have been impossible for Marco to have obtained so much correct information except through actually being there. (175-176, emphasis added)
In fact, most of the problems which Haw claims Polo avoids are precisely the problems that critics like myself see in Polo: overblown self-important claims, exaggerations, errors which suggest 2nd and 3rd hand information, and accurate information which is mostly undatable and often very similar to the kind of reference works and histories produced in China. That some people made errors that Polo avoided doesn't change the fact that Polo made errors which he should have avoided. And the fact that Polo knew things that might have been hard to know unless you travelled doesn't change the fact that lots of people travelled and communicated along the routes that Polo had access to; In fact, it's probably more plausible that information travelled those routes and came to Polo than it is that Polo himself travelled the routes he claimed. There's an immense amount of special pleading. Take, for example, Haw's discussion of transcription and translation issues, which is used entirely to explain away the problems in Polo's accounts:
In judging the accuracy of Marco's account, it must always be borne in mind that none of the surviving manuscripts of his book seem in any sense to be 'original'. All have passed through the hands of copyists and, very often, also of translators (Larner 1999: 109). All are quite clearly, to at least some extent, corrupt. Errors in the text may have originated in a variety of ways. Marco himself may have made mistakes. Rustichello may have compounded these, adding further errors of his own. It is possible that he may sometimes have misunderstood what Marco told him. If Marco found it difficult to read the Franco-Italian text written down by Rustichello, he may not have been able to recognize all such early flaws. When the text came to be copied and translated by others, however, the possibility of the introduction of many further inaccuracies and errors grew tremendously. It was quite normal for scribes of the period to 'improve' upon the texts that they copied by making deletions and additions. John of Piano Carpini included a plea near the end of his History of the Mongols, begging 'all those who read the foregoing account not to cut out or add anything' (Dawson (ed.) 1955: 71). Translators were even more liable than copyists to make major changes. The Latin version of Marco's book prepared by Francesco Pipino is an instructive example. He did not hesitate to delete passages that he disliked and to make additions whenever he felt like doing so. Usually, this involved inserting abuse of Muslims or adherents of other non-Christian religions, which is generally conspicuously absent from versions closer to Marco's original intentions (Larner 1999: 76, 104, 113-14). It can be assumed that, where there are errors and inaccuracies in the book, the great majority originated with copyists and translators, not with Marco. (Haw, 176-177)
I particularly like how he starts the chain of reasoning with "Marco himself may have made mistakes." then winds up assuming that only a tiny portion of the failings of the book are Marco's himself. It is true that Polo's book suffers from a shocking degree of textual variation, but the bulk of Haw's argument, and de Rachewiltz's before him, rests on the presumption that the text is still somehow useable, that the confirmable elements create a presumption of reliability for the unconfirmable remainder of the text; my argument, and that of Frances Wood and others, rests on the presumption that the known falsifiable elements of all versions of the text, and the omission of a lot of material that could plausibly be there in a first-hand account of someone who saw as much as Polo claimed, creates a presumption of unreliability for the unconfirmed parts of the book. Haw's conclusion rehashes the argument reasonably well:
various inaccuracies and mistakes ... few serious geographical errors. ... Parts of Marco's book are confused and confusing, parts are inaccurate, parts are exaggerated. No definite reference can be found to any of the Polos in Chinese or Mongol sources. Marco seems not to have noticed some things that we might perhaps expect him to have seen.
Ok, that's not fair. I left out critical components of his conclusions to demonstrate something: Polan critics and supporters actually agree on a great deal. What's different is the presumption of innocence that Polan scholars seem willing to allow, a presumption that I think is at odds with the appropriate skepticism of historians, particularly for more extraordinary claims that should be verifiable. Haw's conclusion is actually:
Overall, despite various inaccuracies and mistakes, Marco Polo's account is remarkable for being absolutely consistent with his claims. There seem to be no detectable anachronisms in his book and very few serious geographical errors. His account of his return journey with his father and uncle, accompanying a Mongol Princess from China to Persia, has quite recently been proved to show knowledge of events that he could scarcely have known about except through personal involvement. Many scholars believe that this is more or less conclusive proof of his story. On balance, it is very much more likely that Marco Polo did indeed go to China than that he did not. It is also likely that he spoke at least a little Chinese (which has almost invariably been thought not to have been the case by previous editors and annotators), though he may well not have been able to read or write Chinese characters. Parts of Marco's book are confused and confusing, parts are inaccurate, parts are exaggerated. No definite reference can be found to any of the Polos in Chinese or Mongol sources. Marco seems not to have noticed some things that we might perhaps expect him to have seen. It would, however, be a serious mistake to judge the book from an exclusively modern point of view and unreasonable to demand of a merchant's son of modest education an erudite and exacting approach to what he saw.

MMA 2012 - China - Yuan - c 1319 - Buddha of Medicine Mural - enhanced panoramaThe irony of Haw's book is that his attempt to prove Polo's veracity ended up failing for me precisely because Haw was trying to be a responsible historian. I tell my students that there is no such thing as a "smoking gun" document, that one document by itself is meaningless. What historians really work with is rich context: looking at the totality of evidence available, and reasonable inferences and generalizations, to judge reliability and importance of individual documents. (( which then becomes part of the body of work by which we judge future documents, etc. )) Haw did a lot of work trying to make sense of Polo's claims, sometimes successfully. But given the manifest flaws of his source, which Haw himself admits, he accomplishes very little. Polan loyalists are already convinced that Polo's claims are valid and useful, except where directly contradicted by evidence. But they are not going to convince Polan skeptics of the truth of Polo's claims except by verification. And the amount of work necessary to make a good case of Polo is the best evidence that Marco Polo's Travels is a bad historical source that should not be relied upon for anything which cannot be independently verified.

Man doesn't really explain, then, Prozac natural, how he distinguishes between the details from Sima Qian that he trusts and those that he doesn't, Prozac used for, though he continues to cite him. )) This gives him opportunity to present other recent evidence suggesting that the Qin legal system wasn't that bad (e.g, Prozac For Sale. 82) and that the problem with the Qin was, fundamentally, after Prozac, leadership (especially succession). Online buy Prozac without a prescription, Aside from the historical revision, Man embarks on a revision of the traditional narrative of tomb figure creation itself, investigating the processes of construction and production - using the souvenir reproduction industry as a surrogate - in an attempt to arrive at a plausible figure for workers and time needed to complete the tombs as we know them, where can i order Prozac without prescription. The number of assumptions necessary is problematic, Prozac schedule, but the physical descriptions and pictures of the figures are great fun. In related news, U Mass Amherst's Warring States Project looks like it might bear great fruit, fast shipping Prozac, the lectures section looks like the best starting place for dabblers. Prozac For Sale, Julia Lovell's survey of Chinese wall-building is more traditional history, but is clearly directed at a broad audience as well, and she has extensive journalistic experience in addition to being a history lecturer at Cambridge. Cheap Prozac no rx, The book is quite comprehensive, but the narrow focus on the development of what comes to be known as The Great Wall - the careful elucidation of the history of the naming is worth what I paid for the book by itself - means that the context is sometimes lost. The core of the book is, taking Prozac, in a way, Japan, craiglist, ebay, overseas, paypal, the maps: a lovely series throughout the book showing the different configurations of long walls built by dynasty after dynasty, and pictures and descriptions highlighting the very temporary nature of the typical earthen walls. My biggest question about Chinese wall-building has always been its effectiveness: continuing wall-building suggests that the Chinese dynasties believed their effectiveness, Prozac alternatives, while the historical record seems to plainly indicate that walls were ineffective in times of crisis and conflict with northern societies, Prozac maximum dosage, almost invariably highly mobile cavalry-based forces. Lovell's thesis in this regard is interestingly nuanced: when dynasties are vital and trade with pastoral communities is reasonable, then walls are both effective and largely unnecessary; when dynasties are weak, Prozac brand name, or try to close off trade with the northern peoples, Prozac pharmacy, then the walls are a speedbump, at best. Walls appear effective when they are built by young, vibrant dynasties; this makes them attractive for tottering governments which are trying to bolster borders without spending real time and money on military preparedness, Prozac For Sale. As Lovell notes several times, buy cheap Prozac, and the French learned much later, Ordering Prozac online, the problem with walls is that they have ends: determined enemies routinely rode around, rather than through, them, is Prozac safe. And dynasties in decline often have trouble maintaining the loyalty of border guard commands that are ill-paid and can't rely on vigorous back-up, Prozac overnight, so circumstances like the end of the Ming dynasty were more the rule than the exception. Lovell relies heavily - and openly - on Arthur Waldron's The Great Wall of China: From History to Myth, but since I haven't read Waldron yet, Prozac wiki, I can't tell how much she's added to his work; the bibliography is very substantial, Buy Prozac from canada, though, and very up-to-date. She ends with a consideration of the "Great Firewall" which certainly is appropriate, buy generic Prozac, though I'm not sure really adds all that much to the book.

Gao Zhen and Gao Qiang - 2009 - Miss Mao Trying To Poise Herself at the Top of Lenins Head Prozac For Sale, Chang-tai Hung's study of cultural production and manipulation in the first ten years of Mao's rule is a surprisingly clear and lively work: the combination of theory and aesthetics and politics could have made this book unreadable and useless, but I'd actually consider using this with undergraduates if I were teaching a more focused course on China. Prozac duration, (( The individual chapters would work as stand-alone readings, as well, though the totality of the vision doesn't come through that way, Prozac dangers. )) Looking at the early years of the People's Republic through the lens of architecture and art makes clear both the ideological themes and the totalizing visions that made up Maoist communism. Prozac coupon, The core of the book is ten chapters in five categories, bracketed by Tiananmen Square - first, the square itself, rx free Prozac, and the Sino-Soviet rivalry that led to the creation of the world's largest public space, Prozac dose, and finally the "Monument to the People's Heroes" which decorates it, and the historical and political debates that determined its orientation, decoration, Prozac trusted pharmacy reviews, inscription and presentation. In between there are chapters on parades, folk dance, cheap prints and ornate oil paintings, including the infamously altered Founding Ceremony by Dong Xiwen. The balance between syncretic adaptation and revolutionary rejection of existing aesthetics is fascinating, as is the tension between internationalist communism and Chinese nationalism, Prozac For Sale. The latter isn't, actually, so much a tension as an outright contradiction, I suppose: Hung argues consistently that nationalism was part and parcel of Mao and the CCP's appeals, a kind of "original sin" of the PRC that eventually manifests in the Sino-Soviet split, the Great Leap Forward and the present rising tide of national self-regard.

In this context, of course, the Qin tomb figures and the walls become part of a longer, larger story of national self-creation. Though it's probably wrong to speak of "nation-building" in the case of the Qin - or even in the case of the Ming - there's a strain of something like nationalism at the elite levels of Chinese culture that is very easy for populist leaders to adapt into a broad-based cultural phenomenon. I had a substantial discussion about American exceptionalism a while back in which I argued that Chinese elite culture displays all the substantive hallmarks of nationalism in the Early Modern, except for a broad-based popular movement, and possibly even before that. At the very least, the centrality of these monumental works is clearly part of the current nationalist discourse, and very deliberately so.

Atenolol For Sale

Filed under: — Jonathan Dresner @ 11:45 pm

Atenolol For Sale, I was struck, preparing for class yesterday, that the Tonghak and Taiping faiths were surprisingly similar and arose nearly simultaneously: Syncretic monotheistic faiths drawing on Confucian, Christian and indigenous magical traditions, with anti-foreign reformist programs and a counter-cultural ethos of equality. (( The Japanese "New Religions" of the 19th century are very heavily Shinto-influenced, Atenolol reviews, Atenolol wiki, with some Buddhism and almost no Christianity, nor did any of them become political movements, cheap Atenolol no rx. After Atenolol, It's not the same. )) There are obvious differences, where can i buy Atenolol online, Order Atenolol online c.o.d, too, in teachings and in the leadership, where to buy Atenolol, Atenolol trusted pharmacy reviews, but the structural similarities raise some interesting possibilities for research and teaching.
