The partition of Africa was one of the most spectacular episodes in modern history. For Europeans, Africa was still an unknown continent in 1880. Thirty years later almost all of it was under European control. This race for colonies went hand in hand with a host of thrilling exploits and dramatic conflicts, of which Stanley's exploration of the Congo and Gordon's death in Khartoum are just two examples.

Editorial Reviews

"The essence of Mr. Wesseling's analysis is that the partitioning of Africa was a sideshow that played itself out on the periphery of European geopolitics...Mr. Wesseling's analysis is probably closer to the truth than the more popular theories of a systematic and planned process of occupation...[he] paints for us a large canvas covered with intricate detail. It is a work of considerable scholarship..."-New York Times Book Review
