'Volkerschauen, ' or human ethnological displays, promised to take visitors around the world for fifty pennies, providing a form of popular entertainment in late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century Germany while also satisfying deepening European curiosities about exotic peoples and places. For the Samoansmany of high social statuswho traveled to Germany to take part in 'volkerschauen,' the displays were seen as an opportunity to establish political ties with the colonial power. 'From Samoa With Love?' traces the history of these displays of typically Samoan forms of music, dance, and weapons performance that could be found in amusement parks, zoos, and even at Oktoberfest. Recovering both German and Samoan interests in 'volkerschauen' between 1895 and 1911,' ' the book looks at how these Samoan ethnological displays shaped the ways German people saw foreign cultures. Echoes of 'volkerschauen, 'for instance, came to be seen in many works of art of the period, from Ludwig Kirchner s woodcut 'Rowing Samoan Woman' to Erich Heckel s 'Samoan Dance,' paintings and prints by the Samoan-descended artist Michel Tuffery, and works by artists of the Dresden-based collective Die Brucke. Featuring interviews with descendants of former 'volkerschauen 'performers, the detailed reconstruction in 'From Samoa With Love?' goes well beyond cliches to present a nuanced picture of the phenomena of Samoan ethnological displays.'
