This chapter discusses the role of music during the time when colonialism was being introduced in France. It shows how musical fantasies helped increase the desire of French republicans to extend their influence to others and add to their military and economic power. It studies the terms colonialist desire and imperial desire, and explains how music supported the three main assumptions that maintained French imperialism. The chapter ends with a section on the songs that helped inspire resistance.
