Oil and Geopolitics: The Oil Crises of the 1970s and the Cold War

David S. Painter
Examination of the geopolitics of oil in the 1970s provides important insights into the nature and dynamics of the Cold War. Possession of ample domestic oil supplies and the ability to ensure access to foreign oil reserves were significant elements in the power position of the United States in its Cold War competition with the Soviet Union. U.S. oil production peaked in 1970, however, making the United States increasingly dependent on oil imports and ending...

The 1973 Oil Crisis and the Designing of a Danish Energy Policy

Mogens Rüdiger
The Danish energy supply was well-functioning before the oil crisis began in 1973, but the country was highly dependent on imported oil. Thus, the crisis hit a key nerve in its society. This paper analyzes the energy supply before and after 1973, especially the immediate and long-term measures taken to ensure supply security. I argue that the two most important features were the establishment of a regulative regime and the construction of a diversified energy...

The Oil Crisis of 1973 as a Challenge to Multilateral Energy Cooperation among Western Industrialized Countries

Henning Türk
Much of the existing historical research discusses the 1973 oil crisis through single national perspectives. In contrast, this article focuses on the multilateral dimension of this far-reaching event. Starting with the Suez crisis of 1956, it explores the work of the OECD Oil Committee and its High Level Group regarding possible oil crises. However, the crisis mechanisms the OECD developed were not activated when the 1973 oil crisis hit. Thus, US Secretary of State Henry...

Plagiarism in Student Papers: An Empirical Study Using the Triangular Model

Julia Jerke & Ivar Krumpal
Plagiarism in Student Papers: An Empirical Study Using the Triangular Model Sensitive questions in social surveys often yield problems such as item nonresponse and response bias. Yu, Tian and Tang (2008) proposed two new models to overcome these problems: the crosswise model (CM) and the triangular model (TM). Both models can be seen as an alternative to the well-known randomized response technique (RRT) and are meant to overcome most of its drawbacks. While the CM...

Cardinal-Prime Ministers, ca. 1450 - ca. 1750: Careers between Personal Choices and Cultural Life Scripts

Peter Rietbergen
From the late 15th until the late 18th century, 15 Italian men shared a particular occupational life course, by becoming prime minister as well as cardinal to the Church of Rome. Some became prime minister after having been cardinal; others had a reversed career of becoming prime cardinal after having been prime minister. It is obvious that personal experiences will have influenced the policies they set out, especially when a prime minister had been a...

Mehrfachbesprechung Doris Gerber: Analytische Metaphysik der Geschichte.

Nils Freytag, Angelika Epple, Andreas Frings, Dieter Langewiesche & Thomas Welskopp
Currently, epistemological debates on the formation of concepts in the field of history are close to nonexistent. For that reason alone, this book written by philosopher of history Doris Gerber – with which she earned her habilitation degree at the University of Tübingen – is a welcome addition to the literature in the field. In this work, Gerber addresses the metaphysical question of what “history” really is. In this study, she considers approaches typically adopted...

Historical Research on Cultural Life Scripts. An Exploration of Opportunities and Future Prospects.

Onno Boonstra, Hilde Bras & Marjet Derks
People live their lives guided by images and assumptions based on dominant representations of an idealized life that are shared with others in the community. They view the representation of an idealized life as a "cultural life script." The cultural life script provides a conceptual link between individual and society. Such cultural life scripts are not fixed but change in the face of new ideas and in response to changing social en economic structures and...

The Influence of Popular Beliefs about Childbirth on Fertility Patterns in Mid-Twentieth-Century Netherlands

Hilde Bras
Ever since the Princeton European Fertility Project on the decline of fertility, the question of how (changes in) cultural beliefs have influenced the historical fertility transition has been in the forefront of historical demographic research. Previous research has however mostly assessed the influence of religious denomination and has not examined the impact of wider beliefs or ‘cultural life scripts’. On the basis of a folklore questionnaire, this article examines the occurrence, content, and geographical patterning...

Between Grassroots Activism and Transnational Aspirations: Anti-Nuclear Protest from the Rhine Valley to the Bundestag, 1974-1983

Stephen Milder
In the mid-1970s, French, German, and Swiss protesters jointly occupied the Wyhl nuclear reactor construction site in the Upper Rhine Valley. Even at the grassroots level, transnational cooperation allowed reactor opponents to transcend the limits of politics-as-usual and adopt “new” protest strategies. Moreover, though it was minutely local, the Wyhl occupation had significant transnational effects. Activists throughout Europe and even across the Atlantic considered this protest to influence the situation in their home countries. They...

Comparing Societies and Cultures. Challenges of Cross-Cultural Survey Research as an Approach to Spatial Analysis.

Nina Baur
The paper shows how cross-cultural, cross-societal, cross-national, multi-national and international comparative survey researchers have been handling space since the 1950s and how it can be used for spatial analysis. Using the concepts of the Survey Life Cycle and the Total Survey Error (TSE), the paper discusses two major methodological problems cross-cultural survey methodology faces: The problems of (1) equivalence and (2) demarcation.

Examining Space Perceptions. Combining Visual and Verbal Data with Reactive and Non-Reactive Methods in Studies of the Elderly and Library Users.

Eva-Christina Edinger
Space is characterised by both its material and its social aspects. To examine space perceptions in this holistic understanding it is crucial to combine verbal with visual data and reactive with non-reactive methods, because not every perception is verbally expressible. The article starts illustrating a socio-spatial-material concept of space. Based on this it will be displayed how a triangulative research design with visual interview stimuli, participant observation, mental maps, photo documentation, and architectural analysis can...

Studying Tensions between Imaginary Spaces and Concrete Places: The Method of Paired Biographies Applied to Scientists’ Laboratory Lives.

Grégoire Mallard
Spaces and places are at the center of the science studies scholarship. Some scholars focus on the spatial circulation of written traces; others focus on the socio-cultural hierarchies reflected in the spatial organization of the laboratories. But most privilege single-case studies as their research method. While single-case studies offer the advantage of providing rich and detailed ethnographic description of spaces, they often fail to explain how imaginary spaces of science are turned into concrete social...

Measuring Spatial Aspects of Variability. Comparing Spatial Autocorrelation with Regional Decomposition in International Unemployment Research.

Vojtěch Nosek & Pavlína Netrdová
This paper focuses on spatial aspects of variability and specifically on the relationship between regional decomposition and spatial autocorrelation. These characteristics are often supposed to be interconnected, but the subject has not yet been studied in sufficient detail and spatial methods are often neglected in regional analysis. We start with a brief discussion of a methodology suitable for identifying and quantifying spatial aspects of variability. The key part of the paper focuses on methodological reflections...

Grasping Cities through Literary Representations. A Mix of Qualitative and Quantitative Approaches to Analyze Crime Novels.

Janneke Rauscher
Contemporary crime novels often contain detailed literary representations of urban life worlds. These stagings can provide access to city-specific patterns and structures of thought, action and feeling, as well as locally established bodies of knowledge and processes of sense-making. Therefore, their systematic analysis can generate insights into the intrinsic logic of cities. To grasp such patterns on city level a preferably broad empirical basis is needed, but the study of large amounts of literary works...
