About the Author

Giordano Nanni is an Honorary Fellow of the School of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Melbourne.


This impressive book is the first sustained treatment of the effective British colonisation of indigenous time practices. Analysing both the Cape Colony and Australia, Nanni deftly draws our attention to the enormous significance of the temporal as well as the spatial, for the making of the colonial world'. Alan Lester, Professor of Historical Geography at the University of Sussex 'A very fine study, one that has much to offer the broad range of scholars interested in understanding colonial struggles and their ongoing legacy.' Kirsten McKenzie, University of Sydney in American Historical Review (April 2013) [...] if the measure of a good book is that it should ignite the reader's imagination and suggest all kinds of questions for future research, then this monograph delivers and is a welcome addition to the literature on colonial studies. -- .
