This review is from: The Scramble For Africa (Paperback)
The Scramble for Africa by Thomas Pakenham is a very good book which deals with the remarkable last two decades in the nineteenth century when Africa was carved up by the nations of Europe. It is an immensely readable book which deals with a number of different areas and time periods but also goes further and deals with individuals and more forgotten examples of European colonisation such as the Belgians in the Congo. All in all a remarkable book which is a pleasure to read.
