About the Book

"Explores the uncalculated and incalculable elements in historical re-enactment--unexpected emotions, unplanned developments--and locates them in countries where settlers were trying to establish national identities derived from metropolitan cultures inevitably affected by the land itself and the people who had been there before them"--Provided by publisher.
