King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africa

King Leopold's Ghost: A Story of Greed, Terror and Heroism in Colonial Africa - Adam Hochschild I used to be on the fence about colonialism. Not any more. This is a stomach wrenching, finely detailed account of the slaughter of roughly 10 million Africans in the drive for ivory and rubber profits in the Congo River basin. If you ever read Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" as fantasy or allegory, after this you will know its nearly non-fiction.
