A well written but disturbing history of Belgium's African history,
This review is from: King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africa (Paperback)
The author does a remarkable job of explaining how King Leopold managed to carve out his personal empire amid the height of the scramble for Africa. The result was one of Africa's most repressive and mismanaged colonies.
