Mapping Colonial Conquest by Norman Etherington

Book Description

A cross-disciplinary survey of the history of cartography in Australia and Southern Africa which charts the trajectories of both colonial conquest and mapping technologies in both regions. Cartography is herein revealed to be the product of powerful social formations (fiscal, dynastic, military, commercial and imperial), informing not only where we see ourselves in the world but also how our cultural, historical and economic identities have developed over time.

Books By Author Norman Etherington

Imperium of the Soul by Norman Etherington Imperium of the Soul, Hardback (January 2017)

A new interpretation of the creative work of well known British imperialists of the late nineteenth and early 20th century, exploring their links with the revolutionary psychological theories of Freud.

Big Game Hunter by Norman Etherington Big Game Hunter, Hardback (April 2016)

This book tells the story of an adventurer, hunter and naturalist in late nineteenth-century Africa, who would inspire novelists such as Rider Haggard and Wilbur Smith. The book describes Selous' extraordinary adventures, which included elephant-hunting, diamond-prospecting and an early expedition to found Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).

Missions and Empire by Norman Etherington Missions and Empire, Paperback (January 2008)

The widespread idea that Christian missions went hand in hand with Imperialism and colonial conquest is challenged here by a group of eminent historians. By showing the variety of missions and the vital role played by indigenous men and women, they place missions in a long historical perspective.
