Outstanding lecture on German Colonialism in Africa. Dr. Ballard presented a difficult subject in a very professional and sensitive way. Dr. Ballard is very knowledgable and a very good presenter.
An excellent seminar on a topic often overshadowed, presented with great insight and contextual connection to the befores/durings/afters of German history. I always appreciate how generous Dr Ballard is with his tremendous expertise.
You might think that German Colonialism in Africa is a niche topic, but this seminar makes it clear that to understand Africa today we have to understand what happened when the European nations divided up the African continent and tried to exert maximum control over the resources and people in 'their' areas. Dr. Ballard gave a well-informed and detailed history of exactly this from the point of view of Germany as a colonial empire in Africa. Great history lesson.
He is very knowledgeable about his topics.
