H. Rider Haggard on the Imperial Frontier, the first book-length study of H.R.H.'s African fiction, revises the image of Rider Haggard (1856 1925) as a mere writer of adventure stories, a brassy propagandist for British imperialism. Professor Monsman places Haggard s imaginative works both in the context of colonial fiction writing and in the framework of subsequent postcolonial debates about history and its representation.
