Germany's Wild East: Constructing Poland as Colonial Space - Social History, Popular Culture, and Politics in Germany (Hardback)Kristin Kopp (author)
- We can order this
While conventional definitions locate colonial space overseas, Kristin Kopp argues that it was possible to understand both distant continents and adjacent Eastern Europe as parts of the same global periphery dependent upon Western European civilising efforts. However, proximity to the source of aid translated to greater benefits for Eastern Europe than for more distant regions.

"An especially attractive and successful strategy employed by the author as she moves chapter by chapter is to have the focus shift between different kinds of sources, including the genre of 'Eastern Marches novels, ' traditions in cartography traced in precise examples, and cinema. This gives compelling evidence of changes in the discourse she is tracking."
--Vejas Liulevicius, University of Tennessee
