In this book, the author presents a study of the period of German colonial rule in South-West Africa between 1894 and 1914. The history of South-West Africa offers many parallels to developments in other European colonies, and in its outline German expansion followed a well-established pattern of colonial growth. However, this study focuses not on the 'normal' pattern of events which played out in other African colonies; instead, the author is concerned with the processes which prevented the European community in South-West Africa from ever reaching political and social normalcy. This book explores the political, social, and economic factors which affected these processes.
