About this book

Provides a new view of early European explorers and their encounters with Africans, and shows that explorers were far from rational, often meeting their hosts in extraordinary states influenced by opiates, alcohol, sex, fever, fatigue, and violence. Fabian argues that the loss of control experienced by these early travelers actually served to enhance cross-cultural understanding, allowing the foreigners to make sense of strange facts and customs.
