Folio Society - THE SCRAMBLE FOR AFRICA [2 Volume set] by Thomas Pakenham. The Scramble for Africa is the definitive history of the extraordinary period when Africa was carved up between five countries and one individual, Leopold of Belgium.
Thomas Pakenham brings alive the individuals involved, from General Gordon, who attempted to suppress the Arab slave trade in the Sudan, to King Cetshwayo of Zululand, who manipulated the British into standing as a buffer between himself and the Boers. In his introduction, Saul David brings the story of Africa up to date and shows how the legacy of the Scramble is still with us today.
