Victims of political persecution since 2000, Zimbabwe's whites have never overcome the problem of belonging. In North America and Australia, Europeans became the majority and "normal" partiallythrough the genocide of native peoples. Settlers to Zimbabwe, however, only comprised atiny minority. They monopolized the territory but struggled to assimilate culturally. Rather than integrating with African societies, many adopted a strategy of social escape. In this arresting and powerful study,David McDermott Hughes shows how they became emotionally and artistically invested in the non-humanenvironment surrounding them. He traces how writers, artists, and farmers crafted a white identityfocused on ecological conservation and how, emerging from state terror, some are now groping towarda whiteness of uncommon humanity and humility
