A comprehensive look at how Africa became colonized. The surprising part is how late in the 19th Century it actually happened. Another is how Belgium, created as a “buffer state” between France and Germany and ruled by one of Victoria’s favorite uncles, became a major player. The events in this book led to actions and reactions that are still being played out on the continent of Africa.
