  • Bourgeois Comfort under Proletarian Dictatorship: Home Life of Chinese
           Capitalists before the Cultural Revolution
    • Authors: Lu H.
      Pages: 74 - 100
      Abstract: This article takes Shanghai as a case study to look at the home life of what the Chinese Communist Party officially categorized as “national capitalists” in China from 1949 to 1966. Contrary to the long-standing perception in both academia and popular writings that former capitalists were purely victims of the revolution, this study shows that as far as material comfort was concerned, the old rich still lived an infinitely better life than most Chinese at the time, despite the constant political campaigns against them. The persistence of bourgeois lifestyles under communism was an outcome of the Chinese Communist Party’s united front policy, as well as an ingenious use of government policy and programs by capitalists to preserve a way of life that was politically condemned. “Bourgeois comfort” under Mao represented a deviant and dissident undercurrent that helped prepared the way for the remarkable return of opulent lifestyles in post-Mao China.

  • “Their Maxim is Vestigia Nulla Restrorsum”: Scottish Return Migration
           and Capital Repatriation from England, 1603–c.1760
    • Authors: Brown K; Kennedy A.
      Pages: 1 - 25
      Abstract: The return of migrants to their places of origin has been subject to significant theoretical enquiry in recent decades, but testing the resulting modeling against historical data has so far been limited and reliant mainly on nineteenth- and twentieth-century evidence. This article builds upon these foundations by offering detailed analysis of the process of return migration as it affected Scottish migrants to England in the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. Drawing on theoretical insights from social science and examining a broad range of empirical evidence, the article offers a typology of six categories of return migrants: circular migrants, migrants who intended a temporary stay aimed at self-improvement, those returning to retire, migrants returning to take advantage of employment opportunities at home, failed returnees, and those returning from forced exile. Yet the article concludes that the individual stories incorporated within this framework did not add up to a meaningful overall trend and that, in general, Scottish migrants were more likely to settle permanently in England than to enact returning strategies. This pattern sheds significant light on the process of Anglo-Scottish integration in the early modern period, since the tendency of Scottish migrants to settle rather than return home demonstrates the relative openness of English society to certain incomers, while also, perhaps paradoxically, highlighting the firmly Anglicized idiom of the emergent British state.

  • Peasant Women and Rights to Land in Nineteenth Century Egypt: Sites of
    • Authors: Ghalwash M.
      Pages: 26 - 53
      Abstract: The literature on nineteenth-century Egyptian women includes two important themes: one, the tendency of women to resist patriarchy; and two, the ostensibly negative impact of state modernization projects on women. This essay’s exploration of patterns of female land acquisition during the mid-century decades challenges these depictions. It argues that the number of peasant women landholders remained low during the nineteenth century because of the widespread prevalence of the societal notion that identified landholding as a male prerogative, and that this entailed intense male opposition to female landholding as well as the internalization of this notion by the majority of peasant women. This caused women to relinquish their shares of the family land patrimonies to capable men (often relatives) in return for assistance during crisis times. After the introduction of the 1858 land law, women relied on it to negotiate more advantageous land-for-security exchanges with their brothers.

  • Moralizing Public Space: Prostitution, Disease, and Social Disorder in
           Orizaba, Mexico, 1910–1945
    • Authors: Swedberg G.
      Pages: 54 - 73
      Abstract: This article explores how women working as prostitutes in Orizaba, Mexico, laid claim to a more revolutionary vision of women’s citizenship. Prostitutes pushed the state to realize the promises of the Mexican Revolution, even as officials and many local residents—rich and poor—retained outmoded notions of gender and citizenship. This research indicates that “respectable” poor and working-class individuals gravitated toward traditional gender values so as to position themselves as respectable in the eyes of state agents charged with policing morality and public health. State officials’ rhetoric of egalitarianism that followed the Mexican Revolution fell flat for the public women whose pecuniary position persisted long after the guns fell silent.

  • Psychiatry, Hate Training, and the Second World War
    • Authors: Bourke J.
      Pages: 101 - 120
      Abstract: During the Second World War, the role of psychiatrists in military training was crucial. The part played by psychiatrists in training young men for combat was of intense interest to the family and friends of service personnel, as well as to men preparing for combat. Fearing that British men would be unable to cope with the rigors of the modern battlefield and heeding the advice of behaviorist psychologists, the military established battle schools. These “schools” or training camps would focus on “battle inoculation” and “hate training.” The first battle school was established by the British army in early 1942, and a psychiatrist was appointed to it. The school had two aims: first, to establish a new battle drill to replace older methods of training that had proven unworkable; second, to “condition students to the noise and fog of war” by using live ammunition and high explosives. However, this “hate training” came under sustained attack by psychiatrists and the general public. This article uses the lens of military training to reflect on the uses and abuses of psychiatry in times of national emergency.

  • “Banks of the People”: The Life and Death of the U.S. Postal
           Savings System
    • Authors: Shaw C.
      Pages: 121 - 152
      Abstract: From 1911 to 1966, the United States government operated a savings bank at local post offices. Throughout the early 20th century grassroots agitation to expand the Postal Savings System served as an oppositional political force to the power of bankers. Working people advocated a postal bank that would prioritize financial security, affordable credit, and macroeconomic stability. The banking fraternity aggressively opposed efforts that workers and farmers made to expand postal savings. The failure of more than one-fifth of the nation’s banks during the early Great Depression placed the private banking system’s future survival in doubt. The extension of postal savings was a distinct possibility. However, New Deal programs responded to the banking crisis by guaranteeing bank deposits and providing affordable credit to homeowners and farmers. These reforms reduced popular interest in extending postal savings. By 1966 the political opposition facing banking interests was much diminished. Bankers finally succeeded in terminating the Postal Savings System.

  • “We Didn’t Know You Were a Negro”: Fredric Wertham and the Ironies
           of Race, Comic Books, and Juvenile Delinquency in the 1950s
    • Authors: Doyle D.
      Pages: 153 - 179
      Abstract: In our collective memory of the 1950s, Frederic Wertham often appears as the spearhead of the conservative anti–comic book campaign. Yet in recent historiography, scholars have championed him as an antiracist who made mental health care more available to African Americans at Harlem’s Lafargue Mental Hygiene Clinic. Named for Karl Marx’s son-in-law, its volunteers provided low-cost care regardless of race from 1946 to 1959. How did someone who might otherwise have been branded a Communist attract white conservative allies at the repressive outset of the Cold War' This paper contends that this leftist was able to keep his subversive clinic open for thirteen years because that white public was unaware its patients and staff were black. The Lafargue Clinic relied on mass media to generate donations. In the 1950s, the clinic’s public image was linked to the anticomics movement. Because Wertham represented the work he did there with children and comics in a race-neutral fashion, white parents thought the clinic was white, flooding it with donations and requests for speakers. Ironically, this radical clinic was forced to close once the anticomics crusade ended, eroding its conservative base. The history of the Lafargue Clinic’s public image highlights the ironies of a postwar United States united by mass media. A carefully crafted public image enabled some subversive institutions to avoid the blacklist and pursue their missions. By generating allies ignorant of their actual activities and ideology, places such as the Lafargue Clinic managed to survive the 1950s—hidden in plain sight.
