Abstract:Following a method discussed by Margaret Mead in 'The Study of Culture at a Distance', and, later on, experimented by her (with Rhoda Métraux) in 'Themes in French Culture' (1954), the author used a random sample of 52 colonial novels as source material for this sociological study. The paper is a catalogue of the main themes in these novels, from which should emerge a general outline of French colonial society as seen by French colonials. Notes, tables.
