Long Description
Die Aufteilung Afrikas bildet einen der spektakularsten Ereignisbogen der Neueren Geschichte uberhaupt. Im Jahre 1880 den Europaern noch immer unbekannt, war Afrika dreissig Jahre spater nahezu kontinentubergreifend europaischer Verwaltung unterstellt. Rezensionen zur Originalausgabe: "This book is the most judicious and most evenhanded synthesis of the rich historiography concerning the partition of Africa. Its brilliance lies in its weaving in of the diplomatic records about all the European players involved, rather than relying on an account derived from one or two major powers ... It is this ability to refuse, to simplify, to present complexity, to underline the interplay between the unexpected and the expected, which constitutes the main achievement of this remarkable work and sets it off from others." Jan Vansina, University of Wisconsin at Madison "I have read this book with huge enjoyment and enlightenment. It is really a wonderful achievement: lively, vivid and intellectually persuasive." Simon Schama, Columbia University . (Franz Steiner 1999)
