This is the history of the Congo Free State from first contact with the Europeans. It is  a gripping and thorough account of how King Leopold II of Belgium turned that territory into the Heart of Darkness.

Greed, human enslavement, a holocaust, extraordinary bestiality by the King’s agents and other fortune hunters, the corruption and abuse of power, and the formation of one of the saddest countries on Earth. This is the Book about Congo.
