9780719097515: Heroic Imperialists in Africa: The Promotion of British and French Colonial Heroes 1870-1939
Revue de presse :

In this superbly researched and elegantly written book, Sebe has opened a vital new chapter in the cultural history of empire, and also helped to explain why it was often so difficult to control headstrong 'men on the spot'. And by comparing the practices of this 'hero-making' industry in Britain and France, he has made an important contribution to the wider scholarship on Europe's imperialisms. John Darwin, University of Oxford Essential reading for all students and scholars of colonial history. Sebe is sensitive to the very different French and British contexts of the individuals he presents, but the overall impact of his study lies in its insightful delineation of the phenomenon of 'celebrity colonialism'. This book constitutes a timely intervention in debates about the complex interactions between European and African histories. Charles Forsdick, University of Liverpool Berny Sebe has written an original and imaginative work. This stimulating and resourceful book penetrates the reality of myth-building in the colonial era. Wm. Roger Louis, University of Texas at Austin Brilliantly combines the history of mentalities and quantitative history to reveal the mediated nature of, and political alchemy behind, these figures at the heart of the 'imperial mindset' of Britain and France. Jacques Fremeaux, University of Paris-Sorbonne --.

Présentation de l'éditeur :

From the height of 'New Imperialism' until the Second World War, three generations of heroes of the British and French empires in Africa were selected, manufactured and packaged for consumption by a metropolitan public eager to discover new horizons and to find comfort in the concept of a 'civilising mission'. This book looks at imperial heroism by examining the legends of a dozen major colonial figures on both sides of the Channel, revisiting the familiar stories of Livingstone, Gordon and Kitchener under a radically new angle, and throwing light on their French counterparts, often less famous in the Anglophone world but certainly equally fascinating.
