The first edition of this book, entitled "Les Vrais Chefs de l'Empire," appeared during the "phony war" early in 1940 with certain parts deleted by the military censors. Later, the Nazis suppressed it entirely. It deals in critical detail with native life and its relation to French colonial administration in the prewar era.
