Robert J. Norrell

A Scholarly Analysis of Andrew Zimmerman`s Alabama in Africa, a Major Work in Transnational History

How Ideological Commitments Corrupt Understanding

€ 112.15

No study of transnational work has gained more attention than Andrew Zimmerman`s `Alabama in Africa: Booker T. Washington, the German Empire, and the Globalization of the New South`. It instantly rose to broad influence in 2011, but Robert J. Norrell contends that Zimmerman is wrong on virtually all his major claims. Norrell insists that `Alabama in Africa` often relies on shallow or tendentious argument. An American black man, Zimmerman claims, is in large part responsible for the maltreatment of Africans in a German colony and therefore bears guilt for the brutality that Germans showed throughout Africa and that carried over to all their international relations afterward. The leading social scientists brought into Zimmerman`s story - Gustav von Schmoller, Max Weber, and Robert Park are also extracted from their real circumstances and cast into contexts more of Zimmerman`s making than reflections of reality. He is especially hostile to the German Verein fur Sozialpolitik`s commitment to placing economictheory in historical context, which reflects Zimmerman`s Marxist interpretations of the events of his story without open acknowledgment of his ideological position
