Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A fabulous, engaging book This immense book pulled me along from page one. It provides a balanced, nuanced and utterly fascinating descrtion of the European incursion into Africa in the ninteenth century. It dispelled for me all the nonsense about civilizing the Dark Continent; the scramble was all about money and power and influence. Few books have so changed my perspective on history, and few were so memorably fascinating and engaging. This book was wonderful and is a must read for anyone who wonders how the developing world got to where it is today.
