A a wide-ranging edition of colonial sources which thoroughly documents German colonial rule in many and varied fields and aspects, such as administration, economy, religion, and science. It includes and integrates new and modern aspects of cultural and social sciences, gender history, and postcolonial studies. Above all, it extensively incorporates indigenous activities, views, and perceptions. -- Dr. Horst Grunder, professor, University of Munster, Germany
A major contribution to the scholarship of imperialism and to the body of materials available for teaching colonial history. It should be extremely valuable to researchers doing comparative work and to those who want a German perspective on colonial phenomena, but cannot access German archives directly. It will be equally useful for providing primary texts to students in courses on imperial, colonial, and global history. The annotations to the documents are especially helpful: sufficient, but not excessive or intimidating. -- Woodruff D. Smith, Professor of History, University of Massachusetts Boston
