A führer for a father : the domestic face of colonialism / Jim Davidson.

Publication | Library Call Number: HQ75.8.D38 A3 2017

'I was written out of the family story. This book is my attempt to write myself, and my mother, back into it.' In this singular memoir, historian and biographer Jim Davidson writes about his fraught relationship with his authoritarian and controlling father, whose South African background and time in Papua New Guinea and Fiji prompted his own post-war mini-empire of dominance. A manipulative and emotionally ferocious man, he rejects his son and creates a second family, shutting Jim out and eventually disinheriting him, but never really leaving him alone."--Publisher's description.
