German colonialism is a thriving field of study. From North America to Japan, within Germany, Austria and Switzerland, scholars are increasingly applying post-colonial questions and methods to the study of Germany and its culture. However, no introduction on this emerging field of study has combined political and cultural approaches, the study of literature and art, and the examination of both metropolitan and local discourses and memories. This book will fill that gap and offer a broad prelude, of interest to any scholar and student of German history and culture as well as of colonialism in general. It will be an indispensable tool for both undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

He has also published numerous articles on 19th- and 20th-century literary authors.Review:
"This volume offers a snapshot of the variety of activities, research areas, research interests, and approaches emerging in the field of postcolonial studies with regard to Germany and the German colonial legacy. The twenty-two articles are all remarkably short, concrete, and informative; several afford insights into larger research projects." – Florian Krobb, National University of Ireland, Maynooth
"This broadly based, clearly structured, and highly integrated essay collection constitutes an excellent overview of the central points of the growing scholarly discourse on Germany's colonial past. The volume provides a well-focused snapshot of contemporary German colonialism studies and could ideally serve both as a reader for college or university courses on these matters or an orientation guide for scholars new to the field." - Hans J. Rindisbacher, The European Legacy: Toward New Paradigms
