Produktbeschreibung
Here is a look at how our relationship to the land is shaped by historical migration, conquest, and long-term residence. European settler societies have a long history of establishing a sense of belonging and entitlement outside Europe, but Zimbabwe has proven to be the exception to the rule. Arriving in the 1890s, white settlers never comprised more than a tiny minority. Instead of grafting themselves onto local societies, they adopted a strategy of escape. While imagining natives away, white writers, painters, photographers and even farmers crafted an ideal of settler-as-nature-lover. Hughes examines the ways in which whiteness and conservation in Zimbabwe have co-produced each other over the years.
