Big Game Shooting: Elephant, Rhinoceros & Lion (1901)
Big Game Shooting:  Elephant, Rhinoceros & Lion (1901)
Frederick John Jackson (1860?1929) was an English administrator, famous big game hunter, explorer and ornithologist. In 1884 he went to Africa on a shooting trip, joining J.G, Haggard, the British consul at Lamu. On this trip he explored the coast of what is now Kenya, the Tana River and Mount Kilimanjaro. As well as shooting big game, he collected birds and butterflies. Soon after the 1886 treaty was signed to delimit the German and British spheres of influence in East Africa he joined the Imperial British East Africa Company. In 1889 Jackson led an IBEAC expedition that included his friend and fellow explorer Arthur Neumann in the party designed to open up the regions between Mombasa and Lake Victoria, which was largely unknown to Europeans at that time, and if possible to obtain news of Emin Pasha. At Kavirondo he received a letter from King Mwanga of Uganda describing a state of great confusion there owing to rivalry between different Christian factions. He went north, exploring the country beyond Mount Elgon. On his return to Kavirondo he found that the German Karl Peters had passed him and raised the German flag, which he pulled down. He went on to Uganda where he found the Baganda uncertain about whether to accept an IBEAC administration. The decision was made for them by the Heligoland treaty of 1900 in which Britain was given Uganda.The British government took over the administration of British East Africa from IBEAC in 1894, and Jackson became an official. He was Lieutenant-Governor of the East African Protectorate (1907?1911) and Governor of Uganda (1911?1917). He was awarded the C.B. for services during the mutiny of Sudanese troops in Uganda in 1898. Jackson joined the British Ornithologists' Union in 1888. That year a paper by Jackson and Captain Shelley was published describing birds collected during his 1884?1886 trip to Africa. He collected many specimens in an 1898?1891 expedition to Uganda, and descriptions of this collection were published in a five-part paper in the Ibis in 1891?1892. Other papers described new species appeared in the Ibis and other journals between 1890 and 1917. Jackson was elected President of the East Africa and Uganda Natural History Society in 1910. He wrote nine of the nineteen chapters of Big Game Shooting, published in 1894. This famous naturalist-explorer-big game hunter was the acting Governor of the Uganda protectorate when ex-president Col. Theodore Roosevelt made his famous big game hunting trip to the protectorate. Jackson, entertained the Ex-President Col. Roosevelt and the members of his party including other famous big game hunters Alfred Pease, Kermit Roosevelt, Edmund Heller, and Messrs. Selous and Cunningham, stating Mr. Roosevelt had left the "big stick at home and after seven strenuous years as president of the United States had come out to Africa to make use of the rifle." This book originally published by Longmans in 1901 has been reformatted for the Kindle and may contain an occasional defect from the original publication or from the reformatting.

"Shooting an Elephant" of George Orwell - Short Story or Essay on the Essence of Colonialism?
"Shooting an Elephant" of George Orwell - Short Story or Essay on the Essence of Colonialism?
Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,5, University of Vechta (Institut für Geistes- und Kulturwissenschaften), language: English, abstract: This paper deals with Orwell?s text ?Shooting an Elephant?. I use the term text deliberately since my topic says ?George Orwell: ?Shooting an Elephant? - Short Story or Essay on the Essence of Colonialism?. The question of genre has been debated for decades and there have been several quarrels about allocating it to a certain genre. Most experts, however, call the text an essay but there are also those who insist on the text belonging to the group of the short stories. In my paper I will work out features of both genres and at the end of my study I will sum up the findings and draw a conclusion. First, I will give a short definition of the terms ?Short Story? and ?Essay?. This is to show the characteristics of the two genres that I will pick up again in the course of this paper. After a brief summary I will start the analysis of the text working out topics like parallels to Orwell?s life, the meaning of the elephant or the construction of the text. In the final part I will sum up my results and draw a conclusion.
