Praise

“His capacious narrative is both disturbing and fascinating.”
—New Yorker

“A hundred years ago, enlightened people in the western world were outraged by a holocaust in Africa which left millions dead. Yet today not one person in a thousand could say what the fuss was all about, unless, of course, they have already read this amazing book.”
—Tariq Ali, Financial Times

“A brilliantly told tale, at once horrifying and pleasurable to read.”
—Publishers Weekly

“No other scholar, looking at any other part of Africa, has studied colonial forced labour as thoroughly as Marchal has in the Congo.”
—Adam Hochschild, from the introduction
