Format: Paperback
I enjoyed reading what is usually a source text for many other writing. At this stage Stanley wasn't so bad after all - but then this is his view of things! The Kabaka Kingdom was pretty civilized compared to other places!

Lies? Yes. But That's The Point 19 Dec. 2001
By Adrian St John - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Of course this book of full of lies, but that is what makes it so great. If you are reading this book through the eyes of a historian, and can't get past the lies, your eyes aren't open all the way. Stanley's "Through the Dark Continent" shows us the European idealogy of African colonization. All his lies are not produced simply for the purpose of lying, or hiding the truth. He lies to give Europe what it wants: a perfect arena for the civilizing mission. These savages that throw themselves at the feet of Stanley are perfect for conversion. This book helped propel imperialization in its own time, and now shows us how they did such.
When reading this book, use your knowledge of Stanley's deception to get in the mind frame of a late 19th century explorer, not just to experience the adventures; that is the true joy of reading primary sources.
