Reviews

"Ureña Valerio's innovative work addresses what has been missing in recent works on the 'eastern turn' and 'colonial turn' in German studies: it integrates Polish responses to German colonial projects, both discursive and real. Another valuable contribution is her analysis of eugenics and racial hygiene discourses."--Larry Wolff, author of Inventing Eastern Europe
"This highly interesting work brings together the insights of colonial and comparative studies. Ureña Valerio applies them to the Polish-German borderland, or 'Prussian Poland, ' the subject of which has until now been dominated by traditional monographs seeking to claim the land as either rightfully German or rightfully Polish. Her approach is new and refreshing."--Markus Krzoska, University of Siegen
