內容簡介

民族主義研究經典《想像的共同體》(Imagined Communities)作者Benedict Anderson回憶他精彩的一生。本書定稿後不久Anderson即撒手人寰,因此更顯此書的珍貴。

「去年(2015)過世的安德生,因為他獨特的觀點所形成的歷史觀造就了他對反帝國的民族主義起源所抱持的發自內心的同理心。《想像的共同體》出版時,他是西方研究東南亞那個小小學術圈的核心政治科學家,他死後出版的回憶錄A Life Beyond Boundaries: A Memoir展現了他的學術訓練與家庭背景造就了現在的他,同時也理解民族主義特別的反威權訴求。」
--《金融時報》(Financial Times)

班尼迪克.安德生出生於中國,成長於美國加州與愛爾蘭,受教於英國,最後落腳康乃爾大學,浸淫在東南亞研究的領域。他揭發了1965年印尼流產政變背後有軍方的支持,這個事件導致後續的報復行動,殺害了百萬共產黨及其支持者,蘇哈托政府上台後隨即將他驅逐出境。35年來被印尼政府拒絕入境,他還是持續在泰國及菲律賓做研究,其成果包括出現在他《全球化時代》(The Age of Globalization)的菲律賓小說家兼愛國人士José Rizal。

這本A Life Beyond Boundaries紀錄了朝著他開展的世界,其中包括學習語言的樂趣、田野調查的重要、翻譯的歡愉、新左派(New Left)對全球思潮的影響,教學帶來的滿足以及對世界文學的熱愛。書中並論及他1983年出版的最知名作品《想像的共同體》背後的想法與靈感,這本書的複雜度改變了對民族主義的研究。Anderson對知識的熱愛,不同種族與文化的同理心,給予後世之人無限的鼓舞。

An intellectual memoir by the author of the acclaimed Imagined Communities 

Born in China, Benedict Anderson spent his childhood in California and Ireland, was educated in England and finally found a home at Cornell University, where he immersed himself in the growing field of Southeast Asian studies. He was expelled from Suharto’s Indonesia after revealing the military to be behind the attempted coup of 1965, an event which prompted reprisals that killed up to a million communists and their supporters. Banned from the country for thirty-five years, he continued his research in Thailand and the Philippines, producing a very fine study of the Filipino novelist and patriot José Rizal in The Age of Globalization.

In A Life Beyond Boundaries, Anderson recounts a life spent open to the world. Here he reveals the joys of learning languages, the importance of fieldwork, the pleasures of translation, the influence of the New Left on global thinking, the satisfactions of teaching, and a love of world literature. He discusses the ideas and inspirations behind his best-known work, Imagined Communities (1983), whose complexities changed the study of nationalism.

Benedict Anderson died in Java in December 2015, soon after he had finished correcting the proofs of this book. The tributes that poured in from Asia alone suggest that his work will continue to inspire and stimulate minds young and old.
