Eunuchs and empires

Since ancient times the practice of castrating pre-pubescent boys, and sometimes men, was thought to make them loyal servants, suitable for roles at the heart of many imperial courts. Some historians believe this began with human slaves who were treated in the same way as animals – as lesser beings to be managed and controlled – with no free choice. The effects of castration on the male body – the loss of testosterone being the principal one – had a huge impact on how eunuchs have been viewed throughout history. Being unable to father children who could threaten lines of succession, certain eunuchs rose to power precisely because of their exclusive access to the inner workings of empires. Castrated men were also prized for their singing voices in 17th and 18th century Europe, as Dr Brianna Robertson-Kirkland explains. Bridget Kendall discusses this painful episode with Norman Kutcher, Professor in the Department of History at the Maxwell School at Syracuse University in the US. He specialises in imperial Chinese history, and he's the author of Eunuch and Emperor in the Great Age of Qing Rule; Dr Kathryn Reusch, conservation technician at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, who's published widely on the topic of castration in relation to archaeological remains; and Shaun Tougher, Professor of Late Roman and Byzantine History at Cardiff University. He's written many books and articles on eunuchs, including The Roman Castrati: Eunuchs in the Roman Empire. Produced by Fiona Clampin for the BBC World Service.

In addition, he is President of the Interchain Foundation. Today, he comes on Bankless to tell us why we're wrong. This episode's dialectic explores the fate of the blockchain ecosystem—will we have a multi-chain sprawl of different protocols, or will we see a few chains with a power law distribution? We dive into the value of monetary premium, set against the opposing side of monetary clearing and velocity. And what does this all mean for security? The ultimate answer we seek is how to avoid turning the world into a dystopia. On either side of the tyranny spectrum lies anarchy and autocracy, so perhaps the answer rests somewhere in the middle. ------

Often dismissed as the edge of the Russian or Chinese empires, Central Asia hosts a complex history that informs on present day atrocities including the Russian invasion in Ukraine, and the Uyghur concentration camps in China. It is through these current events, that Central Asia has become one of the most important geopolitical regions in the world.  This week's episode of Departures features Adeeb Khalid, the Jane and Raphael Bernstein Professor of Asian Studies and History at Carleton College, and author of the book, “Central Asia: A New History from the Imperial Conquests to the Present."  In their discussion, Bob Amsterdam and Khalid dive deep into historical tensions between Russia and China for influence in Central Asia, particularly as the Belton Road Initiative and other Chinese directed infrastructure projects take hold; and Russia's once favorable reputation is losing value throughout the region in light of their military attack in Ukraine.   But will Russia's assault on Ukraine create an opening for China to increase its leverage over Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and the region at-large?

Tom welcomes a new guest Jon Little publisher of 'The Pickaxe' to the show. Jon discusses the historical usage of precious metals and why metal was first used to pay soldiers. Empires tend to be based on warfare and a continuation of conquering others. Barter was considered cumbersome and paying soldiers in metals while demanding payment in taxes created a market for precious metals. You can see the debasement of coinage during the Roman Empire and the inevitable inflationary outcome. War grabs resources and as governments spend more on wars they tend to have a gradual lack of return on investment. We are witnessing the unintended consequence of sanctions on a commodity superstore nation. Jon argues that a gold standard can help a country thrive within its means. We see problems with the tock indexes and CPI metrics which ignore food and energy. We have enormous debt and an unproductive labor force while Russia has very little debt. Outsourcing has created a service economy in the West. We see the modern obsession with entertainment but countries can't stream their way out of problems. Moving back to a gold standard by a major nation would make their currency far more attractive. China, Russia, and India all promote the buying of gold by their citizenry. Those that have been hurt by hard times understand the value of sound money. It's important to note which nations have chosen to not sanction Russia because that silence is deafening. Modern monetary theory and Keynesian economics are failing rapidly. Jon explains the historic results of currency manipulation. Often government promises aren't worth the paper they are printed on. People will tolerate it a lot but eventually, confidence collapses. Today, it's highly questionable why anyone would buy treasuries for a guaranteed loss. He discusses some of the risks around digital currencies both from hackers, volatility, and a potential lack of anonymity. Lastly, Jon notes that throughout history there have been periods where people have been ordered to turn in their precious metals.

He studied processual archaeology under distinguished anthropologist Lewis Binford. Jon also attended Georgetown University's Institute for Comparative Political and Economic Systems. Little began his professional career working for 21 years in the clay mining industry. He worked with companies drawing from shale mines surrounding Mount Cristo Rey in El Paso. These clay deposits were unique because two manufacturing plants from two separate countries (north and south of the US-Mexican border,) shared the clay resources. The same clay deposits were used by Mexican and US brick manufacturers. This experience sharpened Jon's knowledge of international business and labor relations.

(Dis)connected Empires: Imperial Portugal, Sri Lankan Diplomacy, and the Making of a Habsburg Conquest in Asia (Oxford University Press, 2019) takes the reader on a global journey to explore the triangle formed during the sixteenth century between the Portuguese empire, the empire of Kotte in Sri Lanka, and the Catholic Monarchy of the Spanish Habsburgs. It explores nine decades of connections, cross-cultural diplomacy, and dialogue, to answer one troubling question: why, in the end, did one side decide to conquer the other? To find the answer, Biedermann explores the imperial ideas that shaped the politics of Renaissance Iberia and sixteenth-century Sri Lanka. (Dis)connected Empires argues that, whilst some of these ideas and the political idioms built around them were perceived as commensurate by the various parties involved, differences also emerged early on. This prepared the ground for a new kind of conquest politics, which changed the inter-imperial game at the end of the sixteenth century. The transition from suzerainty-driven to sovereignty-fixated empire-building changed the face of Lankan and Iberian politics forever, and is of relevance to global historians at large. Through its scrutiny of diplomacy, political letter-writing, translation practices, warfare, cartography, and art, (Dis)connected Empires paints a troubling panorama of connections breeding divergence and leading to communicational collapse. It examines a key chapter in the pre-history of British imperialism in Asia, highlighting how diplomacy and mutual understandings can, under certain conditions, produce conquest. Please also see this related article by Dr. Biedermann (which was mentioned during the interview): https://www.journals.uchicago.edu/doi/abs/10.1086/714972 Dr. Zoltán Biedermann is Professor of Early Modern History in the School of European Languages, Culture and Society at University College London.
