“The book is of course of academic interest, both for Raquez’s detailed (if not always objective) observations of customs, dress, festivals, ruins, temples, and the like, as well as for its first-hand look at the philosophy behind French colonialism. The appeal of the book to the general reader is probably Raquez himself, who is irrepressible.”
