King Leopold's Soliloquy

(1905)
A novel by

 
 
The subject is as alive today as when it was written in 1905. For this is a story of the crime in the Congo, crime carried on by rod and by rood. Told with biting satire, and fired with the hate of injustice which made Mark Twain loved by the plain man and ridiculed by the cynic, this book is important reading for any one who wants to understand what is happening in Africa today.
