Abstract

This book chapter "From Conquest to Genocide: Colonial Rule in German Southwest Africa and German East Africa" in the edited volume Empire, Colony, Genocide: Conquest, Occupation, and Subaltern Resistance in World History explores the development from German colonial conquest to occupation and oppression of any indigenous resistance, which culminated in German East Afrika in the 1890s in the fight against two insurrections in 1888-89 and 1891-1898 and in German Southwest Africa in the genocide of the insurgent Hereo and Nama 1904-1907. Between 24,000 and 100,000 Hereros, 10,000 Nama and an unknown number of San died in this genocide.
