dc.description.abstractThe Pan-German League’s push for colonial expansion was based on two ideas: race and space. These concepts emerge as the critical ideological values linking German ethnic superiority with Lebensraum to support a new greater German empire that stretched across Europe and Africa. In turn, these values of race and space, as articulated in the Pan-German League’s weekly journal, the Alldeutsche Blätter, found expression in a discourse of radical nationalism. The Pan-German League was committed to a racially and ethnically exclusive German Volk, which could only be acheived through the conquest of neighboring European territories and colonial lands, especially in Africa. A racial vision of true Germans was thus ideologically combined with a vision of a global spatial reordering.
