Racism, genocide and the battle for resources,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Exterminate All the Brutes: One Man's Odyssey into the Heart of Darkness and the Origins of European Ge (Paperback)
I began reading this book out of curiosity, but very quickly became totally engrossed in it. Although set within the context of a travel book in the deserts of Africa, it is quirky, extremely readable, and paints a lucid picture of European imperialism that has an uncanny relevance to current events in the Middle East and elsewhere.
It mixes a detailed general history with personal reminiscences in a fusion that fascinates as it informs. I can highly commend this book to anyone wishing to understand the origins of racism and the widespread occurrence of genocide in the battles for land and resources.
