Auteur: Lindqvist, Sven
Titel: Saharan Journey
Published for the first time in one volume, Sven Lindqvist's uncategorizable, beautiful and angry books about the African continent and the legacy of colonialism. `Exterminate All the Brutes' takes us on an intellectual trip to 'the heart of the darkness' of the European mind and its attitude towards Africa, tracing the legacy of European explorers, missionaries, politicians and historians in Africa from the late eighteenth century onwards. Its sequel, `Desert Divers', describes Lindqvist's journey through Algeria and Morocco, and explores the way European writers of the early twentieth century plunged into the stony, baking expanse of the Sahara, drawn by their own strange dreams.
