100 years since the end of German colonial rule in Namibia, the relationship between the former colonial power and the Namibian communities who were affected by its colonial policies remains problematic, and interpretations of the past are still contested. Namibia and Germany: Negotiating the Past examines the ongoing debates, conflicts and confrontations over the past. The book scrutinises the consequences of German colonial rule, its impact on the descendants of victims of the 1904-08 genocide, Germany's historical responsibility, and ways in which the author Reinhart Kössler thinks post-colonial reconciliation might be achieved.
