MEDIA REVIEWS

"Hunting Africa is a valuable tool for scholars who study late Victorian and Edwardian Britain. ... Hunting Africa adds to the field of scholarship on imperial masculinity and femininity. Moreover, Thompsell's thorough investigation of personal accounts, social contracts, and violence deepens our understanding of the fraught and complex relationship between colonizers and colonized." (Precious Mckenzie, American Historical Review, February, 2017)

(Toby Harper, H-Disability, H-Net Reviews, h-net.org, May, 2016)
