      Alabama in Africa
      Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South
      Andrew Zimmerman

      To read the entire book description or the introduction, please visit: http://press.princeton.edu/titles/9190.html

      In 1901, the Tuskegee Institute, founded by Booker T. Washington, sent an expedition to the German colony of Togo in West Africa, with the purpose of transforming the region into a cotton economy similar to that of the post-Reconstruction American South. Alabama in Africa explores the politics of labor, sexuality, and race behind this endeavor, and the economic, political, and intellectual links connecting Germany, Africa, and the southern United States.
