Abstract: Gustav Jaeger (1832-1917), the eccentric German zoologist, homeopath and discoverer of the human soul in scents (Die Entdeckung der Seele, 1878) also developed a line of clothing to promote health by regulating body emanations. In the framework of the late-nineteenth-century life reform movements in Germany that included both physical and spiritual dimensions, Jaeger uniquely combined the olfactory with the sartorial. This paper traces primarily Jaeger’s later work as a successful textile entrepreneur as he moved from science toward popular science and focuses on liminality, membranes, and exchanges – concepts that can be used to analyze both smells and clothing.

Abstract: Colombia has been engaged in internal insurgencies for forty years. Only recently has the government, with the heavy support of the United States, begun to make headway against the three armed groups - FARC, ELN, and AUC. The ability of the intelligence agencies, especially the civilian - led DAS, has generally been found wanting. The intelligence community in Colombia has been undergoing reform for two decades though the pace has increased recently in response to a series of scandals. This paper will analyze the reforms and seek to assess their impact in terms of transparency, democratic control, and effectiveness. The views expressed here are the author’s alone and do not necessarily represent those of the Department of Navy or the Department of Defense.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: There is open agreement that tax reform in Hong Kong is now a matter of when rather than if. The Hong Kong Government itself acknowledges that Hong Kong’s revenue law is out-dated. The expected keystone of the reform process is the introduction of Hong Kong’s first ever general consumption tax, in the form of a Goods and Services Tax. The introduction of a GST will represent the most radical tax reform in Hong Kong since 1947 when the jurisdiction's first income tax system was introduced. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the PRC is also notable for retaining a comparatively outmoded political system. Given that Hong Kong is by most measures a first-world, city-state and has been so for some time, this conjunction of attenuated development in two fundamental public policy regimes raises several questions. First, how has this come to pass? Second, what relationship, if any, lies between the development and maintenance of the tax and political regimes? Third, if major tax reform is to come, is this bound to add significant impetus to the calls for increased democracy in Hong Kong?
