By Christian Kirchen

Die Abenteuer des als Emin Pascha berühmt gewordenen Isaak Eduard Schnitzer (1840-1892) haben seit dem Kaiserreich Generationen von Lesern seiner Reiseberichte fasziniert.
Der gebürtige Schlesier, der als Arzt, Forschungsreisender und Gouverneur auf dem Balkan, in der Türkei und schließlich im türkisch-ägyptischen Sudan aktiv warfare, wurde zum Mythos. Als Jude geboren, evangelisch getauft und zuletzt zum Islam konvertiert - Emin Paschas Biographie ist nicht nur höchst facettenreich, sondern eröffnet neue Perspektiven auf das Zeitalter des Kolonialismus. Dieses Buch ist die erste wissenschaftlich fundierte Lebensbeschreibung dieses Grenzgängers. Christian Kirchen hat dafür nicht nur in Archiven geforscht und Dokumente zutage gefördert, sondern auch die exotischen Schauplätze des Lebens von Emin Pascha aufgesucht und vor Ort Spuren gesucht.
