Kevin Grant


This book is a timely, valuable introduction to the history of the Congolese peoples and the Congo Free State. The accurate and intelligent selection of documents offers readers an array of diverse perspectives and a variety of sources, and it brilliantly complements the nuanced, multi-layered, persuasive narrative.

Kevin Grant’s collection allows readers to reconstruct the centrality of Africa to imperial histories and to appreciate the role of the Congo in shaping global capital, race, slavery, trade, and violence in the process.
