Coruscating criticism of European racism,
This review is from: Exterminate All the Brutes: One Man's Odyssey into the Heart of Darkness and the Origins of European Ge (Paperback)This book is a terrifying account of how the Holocaust was a replay in Europe of the hideous, murderous assault on africans by the imperialists of the late nineteenth century. It spares nobody - those who think the Holocaust was the product of a purely German exterminationist racism, neo-imperialists who look back on "Empire" as a golden age, believers in the benevolence of the Christian church and its missionary work in the "dark continent".
One of the most powerful books on racism ever written, and a gem of concision. Buy it and be awed and shocked by the depth of Europe's brutality a century ago, and wonder why it has taken so long for this story to reach us.
