Description

Slaps in the face, kicks, beatings, and other forms of run-of-the-mill violence were an everyday part of life in German South West Africa at the beginning of the 20th century. Unearthing this culture of normalized violence in a settler colony, Violence as Usual uncovers the workings of a powerful state that was built in an improvised fashion by low-level state representatives.
