內容簡介

WINNER OF THE 1999 DUFF COOPER PRIZE.

'Brilliant .. this book must be read and re-read' Neal Ascherson'.

'A hundred years ago, enlightened people in the western world were outraged by a holocaust in Africa which left millions dead. Denunciations thundered from speaker's platforms around the US and Europe. One open letter to The Times was signed by 11 peers, 19 bishops and 75 MPs. Viscount Grey, Britain's foreign secretary, declared that no overseas issue had so intensely aroused the British public for 30 years. Conan Doyle wrote a pamphlet on the Congo atrocities which sold 25,000 copies in the first week alone. Yet today not one person in a thousand could say what the fuss was all about, unless, of course, they have read this amazing book.' Tariq Ali, Financial Times

'Fascinating ... brilliant and gripping' Mail on Sunday

'An exemplary piece of history writing: urgent, vivid and compelling' Literary Review
