SUMMARY

" A book of extraordinary erudition and theoretical acuity, "The Devil' s Handwriting" opens up an entirely new angle of vision on the colonial state, on its regimes of knowledge, its techniques of governance, its diverse historical determinations. Steinmetz' s comparative grasp of the colonial archive is astounding; with this volume he reframes the field of colonial studies "tout court," A truly impressive achievement." -- John L. Comaroff, Harold W. Swift Distinguished Service Professor of Anthropology, University of ChicagoSteinmetz, George is the author of 'Devil's Handwriting Precoloniality and the German Colonial State in Qingdao, Samoa, and Southwest Africa', published 2007 under ISBN 9780226772431 and ISBN 0226772438.
