Although Germany's short-lived colonial empire (1884-1918) was
neither large nor successful, it is historically significant. The
establishment of German colonies and attempts to expand them
affected international politics in a period of extreme tension.
Smith focuses on the interaction between Germany's colonial empire
and German politics and, by extension, on the connection between
colonialism and socioeconomic conflict in Germany before World War
