Constituting Modernity by Huri Islamoglu
Book DescriptionThis text originated from a critique of a liberal understanding of property relation as one between a person and a "thing". States are perceived to be fundamental obstacles on the way to an individual's appropriation of the "thing". State intervention is often considered to be a reason for a presumed absence of private property in non-European contexts. The research presented here contests these assumptions from different perspectives, both in a European and non-European context. As multidisciplinary as it is wide-ranging, the work ranges from practices of the 19th-century Otoman administrative government in the constitution of private property rights to the practice of cadastral mapping in British India. These essays, prepared in collaboration as part of a unified research programme, cover Ottoman and British land laws, property rights in the British colonies, and the notion of property as a contested domain and a site of power relations in 19th-century China.

While pre-modernity is often considered to be the 'time' of non-European regions and modernity is seen as belonging to the West. This book intends to transcend the temporal bifurcation of that world history into 'pre-modern' and 'modern', and question its geographical split into two irreconcilable trajectories: the European and the non-European.
