The savagery of empire
Abstract only
Log-in for full text

Framing German frontier encounters historiographically, this chapter offers an overview of the current literature on German imperialism. It argues for a portrait of frontier encounters that stresses heterogeneity, but rejects particularist arguments that position German approaches to indigenous peoples as uniquely sympathetic. Rather, it sees Germans firmly meshed within a pan-European project of imperial expansion that engendered both violent and non-violent frontier entanglements.
