German Colonialism in a Global Age Summary

German Colonialism in a Global Age by Bradley Naranch

This collection provides a comprehensive treatment of the German colonial empire and its significance. Leading scholars show not only how the colonies influenced metropolitan life and the character of German politics during the Bismarckian and Wilhelmine eras (1871-1918), but also how colonial mentalities and practices shaped later histories during the Nazi era. In introductory essays, editors Geoff Eley and Bradley Naranch survey the historiography and broad developments in the imperial imaginary of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Contributors then examine a range of topics, from science and the colonial state to the disciplinary constructions of Africans as colonial subjects for German administrative control. They consider the influence of imperialism on German society and culture via the mass-marketing of imperial imagery; conceptions of racial superiority in German pedagogy; and the influence of colonialism on German anti-Semitism. The collection concludes with several essays that address geopolitics and the broader impact of the German imperial experience.

Contributors. Dirk Boenker, Jeff Bowersox, David Ciarlo, Sebastian Conrad, Christian S. Davis, Geoff Eley, Jennifer Jenkins, Birthe Kundus, Klaus Muhlhahn, Bradley Naranch, Deborah Neill, Heike Schmidt, J. P. Short, George Steinmetz, Dennis Sweeney, Brett M. Van Hoesen, Andrew Zimmerman

German Colonialism in a Global Age Reviews

"German Colonialism in a Global Age is a solid contribution to the study of German imperialism. It expands the study of Germany's colonialist past beyond earlier scholarship. However, its greatest contribution is to provide the wider community of scholars a window (or perhaps more accurately, a number of windows) into current research into the nature of German colonialism as part of the larger European colonial venture." -- Theodore Nitz * H-Diplo, H-Net Reviews *
"This excellently edited collection summarizing the latest research on German colonialism will be extremely useful for faculty and students alike. . . . Highly recommended." -- M. Deshmukh * Choice *
"The collection incorporates creative scholarship that offers insight into previously unexamined or underexamined dimensions and agents of German colonialism. . . . German Colonialism in a Global Age is a welcome addition to the growing literature on German imperialism." -- Daniel J. Walther * Central European History *
"This edited volume does an admirable job of tackling the task set before it and by widening the definitions of what colonialism meant for those who imagined themselves as colonialists, invites us to reconsider imperial history and the global interactions that played a fundamental role in shaping it." -- Mahon Murphy * LSE Review of Books *
"These essays succeed magnificently in documenting the new vitality of German colonial studies. Naranch and Eley are to be congratulated on a volume that will be the starting point for all future research on the subject." -- Joachim Whaley * Journal of European Studies *
