This work represents the first attempt in English at a comprehensive and critical examination of German colonial literature. The author traces the origin and development of this genre via a thorough chronological survey of its most significant exponents, assesses the ideological impact on its late 19th century German readership, and follows up its unsuspected survival and further development in the ranks of the National Socialist movement and among contemporary right wing elements in the Federal Republic.

Text: English, German (translation)Review:
«There is no overview which is better suited to placing the literary production of German colonialism into clear perspective.» (Sander L. Gilman, Goldwin Smith Professor of Human Studies, Professor of Psychiatry, Cornell University; Mellon Visiting Professor of Humanities, Tulane University)
«A pioneering study of a greatly neglected area of literature which will be most valuable to teachers from a variety of disciplines - history, literature, sociology, and cultural studies. Warmbold writes with admirable clarity and scholarship.» (David Dabydeen, University of Warwick)
«Joachim Warmbold's Germania in Africa is a pioneer work, both sound and critical...» (Reinhold Grimm, Vilas Research Professor of Comparative Literature & German, University of Wisconsin, Madison)
«Warbold's study is a sound and critical assession of German colonial literature from its beginnning to the late 1970s. Warmbold's study should not be ignored by anyone interested in European-African relations of the past and present.» (Arnd Witte, MATATU)
