Catalogue 2016

As a seafaring nation the Dutch have always set their sights toward the horizon. In light of this legacy our new series Colonial and Global History through Dutch Sources thus focuses on the dynamic interaction between different civilizations in world history. Also in The Dutch Moment Wim Klooster reflects on the Dutch role amid the various military, economic, and political currents circulating through the seventeenth-century Atlantic World. With the same globally-minded approach Leiden University Press also publishes books related to the unique and diverse collections of Leiden – the museums and the collections of our University. These books are richly illustrated and we take pride in our high design and production values. Highlights this year include Western Arabia in the Leiden Collections and For Study and Delight: Drawings and Prints from Leiden University. Our Press continues to be a hub of scholarly publishing at Leiden University. We aim to produce titles that make major contributions to international scholarly debate, among them Understanding Islamic Extremism in the Middle East by Graham Fuller, to be published this year. The majority of our books are in English, as we strive to provide for them the widest international distribution, ensuring that our publications are sold around the world. Working in a similar international fashion, Open Access publishing has further removed all distribution boundaries for Leiden University Press. Our Open Access books are now accessed in over 100 countries, thereby reaching places our print books do not. Some of our titles have become available via Open Access this year through the Knowledge Unlatched programme. Between these various programmes and our diverse publications, the Press has been pleased to make a significant contribution to Leiden University’s international reputation. In this catalogue we are proud to present our new and forthcoming titles of 2016. Anniek Meinders Publisher

Wim Klooster

The Dutch Moment War, Trade, and Settlement in the Seventeenth-Century Atlantic World The Dutch Moment demonstrates how the Dutch built and eventually lost an Atlantic empire, one stretching from their homeland in the United Provinces to the Hudson River, from Brazil and the Caribbean to Africa’s Gold Coast. Whether as settlers or soldiers, many participants in Dutch colonisation came from other parts of Europe or the New World. Nor could the Dutch have achieved military supremacy without also carefully cultivating indigenous alliances. Indeed, the Dutch Atlantic was quintessentially interimperial, multinational, and multiracial. Largely under control of the Dutch West India Company, it was an empire entirely designed to profit the United Provinces. In this Dutch Atlantic realm the pivotal colony was Brazil, despite its brief lifespan (1630–1654). From warfare to the slave trade to religious freedoms, the lasting impact of Dutch ventures in Brazil on the Atlantic world is hard to overestimate. Yet the empire’s systematic neglect of its military led to crucial losses there and elsewhere, such that the Dutch scaled back their imperial ambitions. Meanwhile, constantly adaptating to foreign settlers’ needs and mercantilist obstacles, their interimperial approach gained in strength. Dutch commerce with residents of foreign empires thus came to flourish. Wim Klooster is Professor of History at Clark University. He is the author most recently of Revolutions in the Atlantic World: A Comparative History and Illicit Riches: Dutch Trade in the Caribbean, 1648–1795.

Co-publication with Cornell University Press.

The Dutch Moment is indispensable for anyone working in Atlantic history, especially those unable to access Dutch-language sources. – Jaap Jacobs, University of St Andrews, author of The Colony of New Netherland: A Dutch Settlement in Seventeenth-Century America.

The Dutch Moment is a remarkable accomplishment. It will become the definitive work on the Dutch in the Atlantic world, and it is an exemplary work in Atlantic history. It provides a much-needed history of Dutch activities in the Atlantic in the seventeenth century, and it does so based largely on an original interpretation of primary materials in several languages, remarkable sources ranging from dictionaries to cargo lists to diaries. The writing is lively and witty, and Wim Klooster has a wonderful eye for the memorable detail. – Alison Games, Dorothy M. Brown Distinguished Professor of History, Georgetown University.

Manjusha Kuruppath

Staging Asia The Dutch East India Company and the Amsterdam Theatre How is it possible that three playwrights in the early modern Dutch Republic wrote dramas based on contemporary political events in Asia? Reflecting on this remarkable phenomenon, Staging Asia traces the passage of the stories surrounding three political revolutions from seventeenth-century Asia through to the Dutch Republic and their ultimate manifestation as dramas. This book explores the nature of the representation of the Orient in these plays and evaluates how this characterization was influenced by the channels that these dramatists relied on to gather information for their works. As these dramas exhibit strong connections to the Dutch East India Company, this work additionally examines the role of that enterprise in disseminating information on Asia and producing imagery about the Orient. Manjusha Kuruppath received her PhD from the Department of History, University of Leiden. Her research interests include literary history, history of the Dutch East India Company and early modern Asian history.

This is the first book in the series Colonial and Global History through Dutch Sources. Dutch archival and primary sources are imperative for understanding Dutch overseas history from the time of the earliest explorations to the latest phase of decolonization. At the same time, Dutch sources provide a fascinating contemporary window on the regional histories of Africa, the Americas and Asia and the various ways in which these areas were linked through global networks of migration, trade and empire.

The present work deals with a rather understudied question—Dutch Theatre and VOC Asia from the mid-17th to the late 18th centuries—and it is exemplarily researched, structured and written. – Jorge Flores, Professor of Early Modern Global History, European University Institute, Florence.

Clothes Make the Man

The Mesoamerican Codex Re-entangled

Early Medieval Textiles from the Netherlands Textiles occasionally found in excavations generally constitute the scarce garments, household fabrics, sails, etc., remaining from the early Middle Ages. Although several authors have published on textile finds for the Netherlands previously, systematic research of these discoveries has yet to be achieved in the Dutch development of textile archaeology, a discipline fundamental to archaeological research. As a result knowledge in the Netherlands of the production and use of textiles has mainly derived from research conducted in neighbouring countries. Closing this considerable gap, Clothes Make the Man focuses on the use of cloth and clothing in different areas now defined as the Netherlands, in the period between 400 and 1000 AD. This study analyses textile remains from both settlements and cemeteries to obtain a very diverse depiction of textile use during the era. Notably, using textile remains from Dutch cemeteries makes it possible to reconstruct the way people were dressed when buried, in addition to establishing the differences between cemeteries and the groups of individuals within them. Moreover, studying the fabrics from the settlements yields further insight into their production processes and techniques.

Production, Use and Re-use of Precolonial Documents This innovative work attempts to piece together the cultural biography of Mesoamerica’s precolonial codices. Today less than twenty extant manuscripts are all that remains of the Mesoamerican book-making tradition. These pictographic and hieroglyphic texts have often been studied for their content, but in doing so their nature as physical objects faded into the background. By tracing the paths these books have followed over the past five hundred years, this study acquaints the reader with their production, use and re-use, destruction, rediscovery and reinvention. Even today, in fact, these books continue to add new chapters to their biography. That is, thanks to the most cutting-edge technology currently available, it has now been possible to uncover a completely new text from inside one of these precious and fragile manuscripts. .

The Management of the Matobo Hills in Zimbabwe

Wild West Frisia

Perceptions of the Indigenous Communities on their Involvement and Use of Traditional Conservation Practices Since 1992, when the World Heritage Committee established its category of “cultural landscapes”, scholarly debates have ensued on how they could best be managed. One approach, which appears to have gained significance over the past two decades or so, considers using traditional conservation practices as well as engaging local indigenous communities in the stewardship of these exemplary sites. To examine the efficacy of this recent approach, this book explores the concept of indigenous communities, the nature of traditional conservancy in the Matobo Hills Cultural World Heritage Landscape where this study was conducted, as well as the management history of the area. Based on the perspectives of the indigenous people of the Matobo Hills, this investigation studies the extent to which both traditional conservation practices and local involvement can be germane to the administration of World Heritage Cultural Landscapes.

The Role of Domestic and Wild Resource Exploitation in Bronze Age Subsistence This volume focuses on reconstructing the daily lives of Bronze Age farmers as well as the landscape for their subsistence practices. Doing so, Wild West Frisia analyses the separate components comprising Bronze Age subsistence (i.e. crop and animal husbandry, hunting and gathering) rather innovatively: instead of summarizing the known data for each subsistence strategy and drawing conclusions solely based on these observations, this study first determines what may have been present yet perhaps is no longer visible. Contrasting this expectation with the actual archaeological data reveals missing elements, findings for which include recognizing that wild resource exploitation was perhaps equally if not more vital to farming life than crop and animal husbandry. Comparing the case-study area of West Frisia, the Netherlands, with north-west European coastal communities in general, local variation appears to be a consistent feature of Bronze Age farming. It can in fact be regarded as a common feature of subsistence during this time.

The Fall and Rise of Blasphemy Law This collection centers around two trends that currently influence freedom of expression. The first trend confirms the fact that many Western countries have become, over a long period of time, less strict about sacrilegious expression. In the process, many repealed their blasphemy laws or became less harsh in their punishment of blasphemy, hence “the fall of blasphemy law”. The second trend manifests an opposite movement, hence “the rise of blasphemy law”. Over the last decades, namely, Western societies have witnessed multiple attempts to suppress speech that defames religion. To be sure, one particularly vicious way of re-energizing these interdicts against blasphemy has come from radical believers intent upon removing blasphemy from the public domain by violent means. With contributions by scholars from a wide range of disciplines, this volume seeks to offer an examination of topical issues relating to freedom of expression, censorship, and blasphemy in contemporary multicultural democracies. Foreword by Flemming Rose Paul Cliteur is Professor of Jurisprudence at Leiden Law School. His areas of expertise include freedom of expression, secularism, and political theory. Tom Herrenberg is a PhD candidate at Leiden Law School and a visiting researcher at the University of Oxford in 2016.

Marcel Cobussen

The Field of Musical Improvisation The central aim of this book is to present a new approach to “the field of musical improvisation” (FMI), a theory which understands improvisation as a nonlinear dynamic and complex system. The study provocatively argues that during an improvisation more actants are “at work” than musicians alone: space, acoustics, instruments, audience, technicians, musical and socio-cultural backgrounds, technology, and the like all play a significant role. However, not all of these actants determine every improvisation to the same extent; some are more prominent and active than others in certain situations (periods, styles, cultures, as well as more singular circumstances). Therefore, the FMI theory will prove to be more than a theory dealing with improvisation “in general”. Rather, FMI emphasizes singularity: each improvisation thus yields a different network of actants and interactions, a unique configuration or assembly. Marcel Cobussen is Professor of Music Philosophy and Auditory Culture at Leiden University. Cobussen is author and editor of several books (e.g. Thresholds. Rethinking Spirituality Through Music (2008), Music and Ethics (2012) and The Routledge Companion to Sounding Art (2016). He is editor-in-chief of the open access online Journal of Sonic Studies (www.

Monique Shaw

Leiden tussen tafellaken en servet


Een jaar lang publiceerde Monique haar foto’s met begeleidende tekst wekelijks in het Leidsch Dagblad. De foto’s en de teksten zijn vastgelegd in een treffend fotoboek. Het boek geeft een pakkend tijdsbeeld – een unieke blik op Leiden en haar inwoners.



Leiden tussen tafellaken en servet is de titel van de ontdekkingsreis die de Stadsfotograaf Monique Shaw gedurende een jaar door Leiden maakte. Leiden is een intieme wereldstad met een rijke geschiedenis waar veel interessante mensen wonen en werken. Soms al generaties lang, soms mensen die uit alle windstreken naar Leiden komen en ook weer gaan. Zo ontstaat een stad met inwoners die kleine ambities koesteren en inwoners die met grote en hemelbestormende plannen komen – beide werelden komen aan bod in de foto’s van Monique Shaw.


Monique Shaw is afgestudeerd in Fotonica, wetenschappelijke fotografie. Na haar opleiding werd zij de eerste vrouwelijke militair fotograaf bij de Koninklijke Marine. Sinds 2009 is zij werkzaam als zowel fotograaf als styliste. Haar kracht ligt in het vertalen van woorden, wensen en ideeën naar sprekende beelden. Van augustus 2015 tot september 2016 was Monique Shaw de Stads­ fotograaf van Leiden.  Kleurrijke geschiedenis

WIE? Dit is Suzanne Fischer. Suzanne is architect en doet bouwhistorisch onderzoek naar bruggen en gebouwen. WAAR? Midden op de Bostelbrug, een vaste brug over de Rijn in de binnenstad van Leiden. Sinds 1324 waren op deze plek diverse houten en stenen voorgangers. In 1982 werd de brug ingrijpend gerestaureerd. De naam Bostelbrug verwijst naar bostel, het afvalproduct van bier. De naam van de brug werd lang verbasterd tot Borstelbrug, maar is nu weer officieel hersteld.

WAT? Suzanne is bezig met een onderzoek naar de

historische kleur van de monumentale brug. Laag voor laag legt zij de oude verflagen vrij met een scalpel. Ze onderzoekt elk deel op meerdere plaatsen om er zeker van te zijn dat de gevonden kleur ook echt representatief is. Ze bekijkt hiervoor ook vaak historische foto’s en tekeningen die veel nuttige informatie bieden.

For Study and Delight Drawings and Prints from Leiden University 200 years have passed since the founding of the Leiden Print Room, incorporated today into Leiden University Libraries. In celebration of that long, rich history this wide-ranging new publication presents a complete and varied survey of the Leiden collections, starting with rare drawings from the early sixteenth century and ending with recent acquisitions from just this past decade. From Jan Gossart and Barend van Orley to Carel Visser and Emo Verkerk, this work encompasses the history of two centuries of collecting. In fifteen chapters experts in the graphic arts discuss sixteenth-century drawings, experimental etching techniques, portraits from five centuries and contemporary drawings and prints. Special attention is also devoted to David Humbert de Superville, the first director of the Print Room and a brilliant draughtsman. Besides being the standard reference on the Leiden Print Room for years to come, the more than 300 full-page colour reproductions displaying highlights, rarities and unknown masterpieces make this book a pleasure to read as well as to regard.

Western Arabia in the Leiden ­Collections Traces of a Colourful Past In the late nineteenth and early twentieth century Dutch diplomats, scholars and travellers assembled unique collections in Jeddah, Mecca and Medina. The Dutch presence in Arabia, where they established a consulate in Jeddah, was intimately connected with the supervision of the annual pilgrimage to Mecca from the Netherlands East Indies, present-day Indonesia. Notable guests at this consulate included the formidable Dutch Islamicist Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje, visiting Arabia in 1884-1885. With the invaluable help of local Muslims, Dutch collectors tried to capture the essence of what they regarded as an “authentic” Oriental culture in a period when Arabia was already looking towards modernity. These extensive collections are now preserved at the Leiden Museum of Ethnology (Museum Volkenkunde and Leiden University Libraries. Together, they allow a glimpse into a colourful and vibrant society, one virtually vanished today under ever-growing numbers of pilgrims, changing political and religious allegiances and sudden economic prosperity.

Luitgard Mols is Director of Sabiel, Research in Islamic Art, and formerly Curator of South-West and Central Asia at the Leiden Museum of Ethnology. There she curated the exhibition Longing for Mecca. The Pilgrim’s Journey (2013–2014). She co-edited, with Marjo Buitelaar, Hajj. Global Interactions through Pilgrimage (2015). Arnoud Vrolijk is Curator of Oriental Manuscripts and Rare Books at Leiden University Libraries. He has published extensively on the university collections and the history of Arabic scholarship. His latest monograph, together with Richard van Leeuwen, is Arabic Studies in the Netherlands. A Short History in Portraits (2014).

Nederlandse titulatuur In aanspreken en op schrift & in protocol en netwerken Wanneer schrijft u een e-mail en wanneer een brief en hoe gebruikt u de titulatuur in een e-mail? Hoe schrijft u een echtpaar op correctie wijze aan? Klopt het dat u “meneer” tegen de koning zegt? En hoe om te gaan met de verkregen graden in het wetenschappelijk en hoger beroepsonderwijs? Nederlandse titulatuur, in aanspreken en op schrift & in protocol en netwerken is een moderne gids met de correcte aanspreek- en aanschrijfvormen als onderdeel van het protocol in communicatie. In een tijd waarin snelle manieren van contact en sociale media voorop staan, lijkt correcte titulatuur aan belang te verliezen. Persoonlijke presentatie, gedrag binnen een groep en weten hoe het hoort zijn echter een blijk van respect. Titulatuur is van onderscheidend belang binnen het bedrijfsleven en de wereld van de digitale communicatie.

Graham E. Fuller

Understanding Islamic Extremism in the Middle East Over the past decade the Middle East has undergone huge geopolitical shifts, including widespread war and violence, the collapse of numerous regimes, a changing American role, a restored Russian presence, and the emergence of ISIS. In this book Graham Fuller addresses the character of these shifts and how they will shape the future of this tumultuous region as well as the role of major outside powers.


Fuller firstly focuses on Shari’a law and its appropriate role, if any, in the politics and governance of the Muslim world, thereby further exploring why identity may be the most important factor in examining Middle East politics today. Next he addresses the current Shi’ite-Sunni conflict, not simply by scrutinizing the essentially theological approach found in most Western analysis but also through better understanding the many more extra-religious factors behind the scenes. Finally the author claims that the appearance of ISIS has stretched the perennial phenomenon of Political Islam to the extreme. What, then, does ISIS imply for the future of the Middle East and for Islamist movements in general, not to mention for Muslims’ understanding of Islam itself? LEIDEN PUBLICATIONS

Recently the media have reverberated with references to Jihad and Jihadists.

ASLU 28 The island of Skyros from Late Roman to Early Modern times An archaeological survey M. Karambinis


Lin Chin-hui and Maghiel van Crevel

Riccardo Zipoli is professor of Persian Language and Literature at Ca’ Foscari University, Venice, where he also teaches Conceiving and Producing Photography. The western cliché about Persian poetry is that it deals with roses, nightingales, wine, hyperbolic love-longing, an awareness of the transience of our existence, and a delicate appreciation of life’s fleeting pleasures. And so a great deal of it does. But there is another side to Persian verse, one that is satirical, sardonic, often obscene, one that delights in ad hominem invective and no-holds barred diatribes. Perhaps surprisingly enough for the uninitiated reader it is frequently the same poets who write both kinds of verse. Riccardo Zipoli’s Irreverent Persia is a splendidly comprehensive introduction to this fascinating and hitherto virtually ignored side of the Persian literary canon, providing a wealth of examples of the varieties of the genre in accurate and felicitous translations. − Dick Davis, professor and Chair of the Near Eastern Languages and Cultures Department, Ohio State University

The Indonesian Experience after the Fall of Suharto

Aegean archaeology has mainly concentrated on Prehistoric and GrecoRoman times and has provided relatively little information on human activity and material culture in the medieval period. Historical research concerning the medieval era is sufficiently developed but archaeological research on the medieval Aegean has mainly focused on matters of art and architecture. In fact, we have an overall picture of the medieval and post-medieval periods for only a few islands of the Aegean. This ASLU volume fills this gap. It uses the ancient past as background for examining the continuity and change that the island of Skyros experienced from the Late Roman period onwards. It brings together two different archaeological ‘schools’, that of long-term survey research (based mainly on material culture) and that of ‘traditional’ Byzantine and Post-Byzantine archaeology (focused on art and architecture), offering new perspectives on settlement patterns, art and architecture, and the material culture of Skyros from Late Roman to Early Modern times. The combination of archaeological data and information from historical sources reconstructs the regional history of Skyros during that time span, which is ultimately the main purpose of this study. Michalis Karambinis took his BA on archaeology in the University of Athens and his MA in the Pontifical Institute of Christian Archaeology in Rome. In 2009 started his PhD dissertation at Leiden University, with this book being the outcome of this research. In 2007-2015 he worked for the Hellenic Archaeological Service (Archaeological Ephorate of Euboea). He is currently a Post-Doctoral researcher at Leiden University in the ERC project “Empire of 2000 cities: urban networks and economic integration in the Roman Empire”.

This volume views terrorism trials as a form of theatre, where the “show” that a trial may offer can develop often unexpected dynamics, which at times might inconvenience the government. Seeing terrorism trials as a stage where legal instruments are used (and abused) to argue the validity of contested political constructs, this study presents a performative perspective to draw attention to the mechanisms and effects of terrorism trials in and outside the courtroom.

and professional settings.

Terrorism trials are an exceptional opportunity for better understanding and, hence, countering terrorism, since they are often the only place where most if not all of the actors of a terrorist incident meet again, and where the media report and broadcast their respective accounts. A nexus between terrorist violence, law enforcement and public opinion, terrorism trials showcase justice in progress and thus demonstrate to the world how terrorism suspects are treated under national law.

Riccardo Zipoli Between 1966 and 1980, the War History Office of the National Defense College of Japan (now the Center for Military History of the National Institute for Defense Studies) published the 102-volume Senshi Sōsho (War L U P These volumes give a detailed account of the operations History Series). of the Imperial Japanese Army and the Imperial Japanese Navy during the Second World War. Volume 3 of the series, The Invasion of the Dutch East Indies, describes in depth the campaign to gain control over the Indonesian archipelago – at that time the largest transoceanic landing operation in the military history of the world. The present book is the first complete and unabridged translation of a volume from the comprehensive Senshi Sōsho series. It enables military historians and the general public to see and study for the first time how the operation that put an end to Dutch colonial rule in Indonesia was planned and executed.

The island of Skyros from Late Roman to Early Modern times

Poetry expressing criticism of social, political and cultural life is a vital integral part of Persian literary history. Its principal genres – invective, satire and burlesque – have been very popular with authors in every age. Despite the rich uninterrupted tradition, such texts have been little studied and rarely translated. Their irreverent tones range from subtle irony to crude direct insults, at times involving the use of outrageous and obscene terms. This anthology includes both major and minor poets from the origins of Persian poetry (10th century) up to the age of Jâmi (15th century), traditionally considered the last great classical Persian poet. In addition to their historical and linguistic interest, many of these poems deserve to be read for their technical and aesthetic accomplishments, setting them among the masterpieces of Persian literature.
