Book review

Congo: the very word calls up images of steaming jungles, dense primeval flora, and talking drums along the slow dark river. This river, 2716 miles long, was silent witness to the selling of hundreds of thousands of Congolese into slavery, the bloody reign of King Leopold II, the race to harvest latex, and the Simba massacres of 1964. Few places in the world have suffered as much terror and bloodshed as the Congo has in the past six hundred years, since its "discovery" by civilization, and The River Congo is the classic account of this dark history.
