Acerca de


This book examines the impact of ideas of race and gender on imperialism through various forms of discourse surrounding the Boer War of 1899–1902: from the writings of Arthur Conan Doyle, Olive Schreiner, H. Rider Haggard and Rudyard Kipling to newspapers, propaganda, and other forms of debate in print.


"Paula Krebs's book makes an important contribution to the existing scholarship on late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century British and South African literature and culture. Her research is exhaustive and skillfully mounted; her use of evidence is exemplary; she writes in a direct, focused, uncluttered style, which belies the theorectical sophistication of her analysis. Krebs emerges in this volume asa singularly generous reader of the work of others...her engagement with the work of others is constructive and giving. Krebs succeeds admirably in adding to our understanding of the workings of late-Victorian imperialism." Novel

"Kreb's book offers the reader a wealth of original material and is exhaustively referenced. The argument is a powerful one and it is convincingly supported by example." Jenny de Reuck, H-Net Reviews

"...the book is unique in analyzing several genres, and should be relevant to those intersted in how discourse creates and mirrors public understanding of conflict in times of rapid cultural change." Victorian Periodicals Review

Descripción de la librería

We stock books about art, design, fashion, heritage/history and gender/sexuality, specialising in books about Australian, Asian & Pacific arts, crafts design and cultural history. Since we are committed to marginalised and innovative social and cultural practices, we are more likely to have books on women artists or dissident life than coffee-table books on iconic figures. This shop is in Sydney's legendary Kings Cross area, which has provided alternatives to this country's normalcy and suburbia for the last 80 years. Colloquially known as 'The Cross', this name signifies Antipodean bohemia, streetgangs and a world-famous red light district etc. THE CROSS Art + Books is a foundation member of The Bookdealers Guild (NSW).
