By 1902, five European powers had grabbed almost the whole continent, giving themselves 30 new colonies and protectorates and 10 million square miles of new territory, and 110 million bewildered new subjects. This work provides an account of the conquest of Africa. We are given arresting vignettes of the main players. Lord Derby, protesting at "this absurd scramble", the Belgian Emperor King Leopold II grabbing and ruthlessly exploiting the rubber deposits in the Congo, and Prince Otto von Bismarck casually munching on prawns at the Congress of Berlin while determining the fate of millions.Hide synopsis
