Wekker, Gloria: White Innocence. Paradoxes of Colonialism and Race. Durham: Duke University Press, 2016. ISBN 978-0-8223-6075-9

Aus der Verlagsankündigung: „In White Innocence Gloria Wekker explores a central paradox of Dutch culture: the passionate denial of racial discrimination and colonial violence coexisting alongside aggressive racism and xenophobia. Accessing a cultural archive built over 400 years of Dutch colonial rule, Wekker fundamentally challenges Dutch racial exceptionalism by undermining the dominant narrative of the Netherlands as a „gentle“ and „ethical“ nation.“
