Product Description

Imported from USA


“An enthralling story, full of fascinating characters, intense drama, high adventure, deceitful manipulations,
courageous truth-telling, and splendid moral fervor . . . A work of history that reads like a novel.”
—Christian Science Monitor

“As Hochschild's brilliant book demonstrates, the great Congo scandal prefigured our own times . . . This book must be
read and reread.”
—Neal Ascherson, Los Angeles Times

“A vivid, novelistic narrative that makes the reader acutely aware of the magnitude of the horror perpetrated by King
Leopold and his minions.”
—The New York Times

“King Leopold’s Ghost is a remarkable achievement, hugely satisfying on many levels. It overwhelmed me in the way Heart
of Darkness did when I first read it—and for precisely the same reasons: as a revelation of the horror that had been
hidden in the Congo.”
—Paul Theroux

“Carefully researched and vigorously told, King Leopold’s Ghost does what good history always does—expands the memory
of the human race.”
—The Houston Chronicle
